If you're wondering what to do with your Saturday, may we suggest an afternoon filled with free booze and Real Housewives?
Though Mas Vino Wine & Spirits has been open a few months now, it waited to have a grand-opening celebration until it could host one of epic proportions.
Thus the awesome shindig, planned for June 15. The doors open at 9 a.m. for people who want to get an early start on their weekend festivities. The real fun begins at 10:30 a.m., when the first of more than a dozen free classes start. If you've always wanted to learn about wine... or how to make the perfect bloody mary... or mix one damned good cocktail -- this is your best shot. Though the classes are free, there's a 30-student maximum per session, so it's best to register in advance. (You can see the complete schedule and register here.)
Now that you've learned a thing or two about wine and spirits, it's time to party. Starting at 2 p.m., Real Housewives of Miami's Adriana de Moura hosts the official celebration with plenty of wine, spirits, and beer to sample. In addition, there'll be free food, music, and continuous raffles throughout the day, until 9 p.m.
Before leaving, don't forget to pick up a few bottles to take home from the shop's selection of more than 3,000 wines, craft beers, and spirits. Because, ya know, there's still Sunday.
