If you are still on the fence and aren't sure if you should come to this wine event, maybe these 10 amazing reasons will help convince you to join me on Saturday at Rochester UnCorked:

#10 - NO Laundry to fold at a wine event

Right now at my house, I've got 3 loads of laundry that need to be folded.  Lately, my gigantic St. Bernard has been trying to help and brings the clean clothes to me.  Unfortunately, they all need to be washed again because he drools them up.

FYI, no one at Rochester UnCorked is judging you about your loads of laundry that need to be folded.  We all have them.

#9 -  The most delicious food that all pairs amazingly with wine! 

Here's the menu so you can plan ahead and know what to expect.


#8 - Speaking of food, you don't have to cut it up for anyone at Rochester UnCorked!

If you are used to finding restaurants that are kid-friendly and usually end up eating cold food because you are busy cutting up everyone else's food...you are in luck!  There are NO chicken nuggets on the menu. at Rochester UnCorked.  This is a 21 and older event which means, you actually get to eat food at a temperature it was intended to be consumed at.
