Spin the bottle brings back preteen memories in a suburban basement when Cara DeBoest's parents weren't around. The Rustic Cellar has upgraded the setting considerably.
This Thursday, the cozy Cellar will host Spin the Wine, a collision of spin the bottle and a regular tasting. Management has put the kibosh on kissin'... but issued no prohibition against removing articles of clothing.
Alas, things probably won't get that out of hand. Despite the Cellar's cautioning that "anything could happen!" it's still Boca. The most that'll come loose is an expensive earring.
Couples and singles are welcome; $16 (in advance) allows you four spins and a chance to win more glasses of vino plus apps. If you show up at the party, it's $20.
