PSA: USQ Wine Tasting Promotion Ending
If you haven't tried out the Enomatic self-serve wine tasting system at the new Union Square Wines, head down there before Sunday to get your free 500- or 1000-point card. After Sunday, we learned tonight, the only way you'll be able to get one of the declining balance cards is if you actually buy some wine there. I think it's like five tasting points for each dollar spent in the store, which means an average sample of wine will come from $3 or $4 of wine purchased. The system will still be in place, but the wine just won't be flowing as freely, so to speak. I guess they've been swamped by lots of freebie seekers.
