This week's tastings at Modern Liquors sound particularly refreshing. On Wednesday night from 6 to 8 pm, they will feature a tasting of an Italian rose pinot grigio, pinot noir and Prosecco. With the vino will be served cheese and bread (indeed, Wednesday is "Bread Night," which apparently has a loyal following unto itself...). On Friday from 6 to 8 pm, Modern Liquors will feature a tasting of summer cocktails made with Macchu Pisco.
Worth noting is that Modern Liquors is a great stop en route to those pool parties and summer venues forbidding glass. The store carries an assortment of alternatively packaged libations, such as Sofia Coppola canned sparkling wine, Sauza Margarita in a box and Oberon & Heineken mini-kegs.
