20/20 Nights at WineExpo
Recently we were hanging out with TreasureLA, and, over an excess of beer and debauchery, we discussed some of LA’s best booze deals. The point came up that there are some deals in LA that are in fact SO good, that offer SO much for SO little, that not even us finerthings gals have ever been able to FULLY take advantage of them. Case in point: WineExpo 20/20 nights.
Every Monday and Thursday, starting at 5pm, WineExpo opens up 20 bottles for you to sample, and charges you $20. You can try ALL 20. And not just little sips, but actual tastes/glasses of vino. TWENTY.
Don’t let the sad strip-mall exterior of this place deter you. Its both a wine shop and wine bar, and who cares if it has a gussy exterior. We’re talking TWENTY WINES FOR TWENTY DOLLARS HERE. Amazing. Really amazing. You couldn’t even buy 20 bottles of wine from TJs for $20. And these wines will definitely be a lot better than
If you need a bit of food to pair with your wine, WineExpo has a selection of salumi and cheese plates for you to choose from as well as a crostini sampler with veggies. All these items will run you around $11. And if sampler plates are not enough to sate your voracious appetite, there are usually food trucks parked out front Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights. Tonight’s will be the Vizzi Truck (Check out the list future scheduled trucks online.)
TreasureLA admitted to us that he’d tried the 20/20 deal once, never making it through all 20 wines and still needing a cab home at night. So it makes us wonder: Has anyone ever successfully made it through all 20 wines on any given night? If so, we’d love to meet them and ogle in the greatness of their liver.
