Winter and spring have taunted us with only a few sunny days and we’re feeling entitled to some conspicuous consumption of the cocktail kind, whether inside or out. We’ll happily don some sunglasses, slip on a springy shift, and show a little skin—even if we have to spray on tans over our sun-deprived legs! Bring on the patios, the happy hour, and fair-weather drinks and we’re there.

Cheers to 40 years with wine tasting festivities
Join Metropolitan Market for complimentary wine tastings at several locations featuring their new releases – MM Rose #4, White #5 and MM Red #12 and their exclusive Savoureux Pinot Noir ’09 along with other unique Washington Wines and fine imported wines. At the tasting, wines will be paired with Northwest food partners including Salumi Artisan Cured Meats, Boat Street Pickles and Artisan Handmade Cheeses. Finish your tasting with Gelatiamo Gelato.
A sneak peek:
MM Rose #4 – Zestily rendered with heady aromas and crisp mix of red berries, citrus fruit, and fresh cut flowers and herbs; excellent with salmon, grilled meats or poultry and side salads.
MM White #5 – Fashioned for summer delights with waves of mixed citrus, melon, and pear tamed by notes of flowers, lime leaf, mineral and lively, focusing acidity.
MM Red #12 – A five-grape blend, with a substantial helping of Malbec with its sturdy structure and subtle herb and mineral complexity lurking behind ripe, wide-open dark berries and black plum fruit.
Savoureux Pinot Noir ’09 – From the Willamette Valley, layered with an almost European sensibility with notes of black cherry, raspberry, earth, smoke and spice into a coherent and elegant package.
