NYC’s favorite wine tasting just got better…We are going to turn the Best Buy Theatre in Times  Square (formerly NOKIA) into a gargantuan vineyard. Wines from all over the world – great Zinfandels  from California…Super Tuscans from Italy…crisp Bordeaux from France…and some amazing wines from Latin America. Over 200 wine selections to taste in all. Last year this event was named by NBC Local Television as the “must attend event” of the first weekend in February. And last year the event was sold out…so what are we doing this year?? We are creating more room and more space for attendees, and there are two (2) sessions this year, afternoon and evening. That means more wine,
more food and more room to stretch out and enjoy. Dare we say “Business Class”?

Special performance by Shilts, formerly from Down To The Bone!  Shilts is the former leader of contemporary funk/jazz band Down  to the Bone. He will take the stage for a set to close out each  session of the festival. His music is funky and danceable and  has a party flavor — more so than typical Contemporary Jazz.  He weaves in catchy Funk and Soul grooves. The band is a  5 piece group featuring sax, guitar, organ, bass, and drums.  All top notch players. It’s a perfect way to finish the night.  Having Shilts on the stage ensures that the 2011 NYC Winter  Wine Festival is indeed a “festival”. Enjoy!
