How about a wine tasting in a bar? The mood at Barca is decidedly less fusty than many of the wine tastings around town. Stop in to this Capitol Hill lounge for their Port Wine Launch Party with local distributor, Elemental Importers, and sample boutique ports direct from Portugal. The free tasting is accompanied by live music, and, if you decide to linger, drink specials are available.
Thursday, March 25, 6:30 p.m.
Barca, 15011 11th Ave., 325-8263.
