On Wednesday, August 8th, Island Creek Oyster Bar is teaming up with Upper Glass for a Meet the Somm Happy Hour with ICOB’s wine director Lindsay Howard. Upper Glass works with local sommeliers to save you time, research, and the risk of buying a bab bottle to curate and deliver great, affordable wine right to your door. Lindsay will be in the house pouring her Upper Glass selections (along with a few surprise bottles) from 5:00 to 7:00pm, so you’ll get a chance to ask her questions, check out the program, and nosh on lite bites and oysters from the kitchen. Check out the wines below, and grab your $50 ticket this way.
