The CBC Boathouse at India Point Park is open for the season! This Thursday night there will be another CBC Wine Tasting Event, and since Thursday is the day after Tax Day (and we’re all poor) the varietal will be:
House Whites Under $10.

If you’ve never joined us before, it goes like this:

  • Your team (of up to 3 people) brings 3 bottles of the same House-White-Under-$10
  • … and you each bring a suggested $10 donation for CBC
  • We serve 2 of your bottles (blindly) and put the 3rd one in the prize pool.
  • You vote on your favorite (remember, you can’t see the labels)
  • If your wine gets voted as favorite, you win all the 3rd bottles.
  • The more people that come, the bigger the prize pool!

For the rest of the details, check out the CBC event page. Remember, you can now get to the boathouse via the Gano St exit off of I-195!

  • Seriously! Hopefully, the weather will be nice next time, and we can enjoy the view of the water from the deck. We’ll definitely need to move the tables around to stagger the crowds better, too. Oh, and MORE CHEESE! 😀

    The next one is scheduled for 6/25 and the varietal is Shiraz.

    Good times!
