For the first time this year, Tastings Wine Bar and Bistro is graciously hosting Wine Continuum, a Sunday brunch (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) that will allow the good times to continue. Wine Continuum will take place at Tastings (conveniently located in the Conrad) on the Sunday morning following the Wine Auction. This event will include a variety of food stations with selected wine pairings (these wines are included in the ticket price) to accompany the food. Not only will each guest also receive a $10 Tastings card, but each guest will be afforded a 2:30 p.m. late checkout time from the Conrad. Tickets are available for $45. However, Wine Continuum is limited to the first 40 reservations, so be sure to get your tickets early to take advantage of this fantastic event.
