Wine-Rules Scrabble

What to do on this #SundayFunday? Scrabble and Wine – two great things that go great together!

In this twist on the game, all wine-related terms (think “field blend”, “pigéage”, “aged in oak”), producer names, grapes, etc, are legal!  We will have multiple boards available to play in the lounge all day long, from noon.



Local Flavor: Foraged Foods, Local Wines

It’s a local extravaganza!

Join us for a pairing of foods locally-foraged by Heather McMonnies of Food Hedge, and wines from nearby PA and NJ wineries, selected by Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and Wining Archaeologist.

Jill and Heather will lead this seated tasting in Jet’s lounge. We’ll have 5 wines from wineries within 100 miles of Philly, paired with small plates prepared from foods found in nearby fields and forests. The menu will be executed by Chef Justin Swain of our neighbor, Rex 1516. Learn about foraging, and the food and wine in your backyard!

  • Pickled Fiddleheads with Va La Silk
  • Crostini w/ Morel mushroom and green garlic, with 1723 Vineyards Albarino
  • Kidchego cheese w/ hay roasted tomato jam, with Galer Estate Cabernet Franc

Sex and Wine: Powerful, Sultry, and Smooth

How do *you* talk about wine? Do you think of wine as “male” or “female”? Androgynous? Trans? Sex-based, gendered adjectives like “muscular”, “pretty”, and “buxom” are frequently used to describe wines. But why? How do *you* refer to wine? Is it static? Or fluid?

We’ll taste wines all along the gender spectrum, and talk about their traits.

  • Pajot, Côtes de Gascogne Quatre Cepages (2018)
  • Tenuta la Piccola Malvasia Secca (2017)
  • Castello di Verduno, Verduno Pelaverga Basadone (2017)
  • Pares Balta Garnatxa Indigena (2015)
  • Decibel, Malbec Hawke’s Bay (2016)

Join us for this fun and spirited evening of wine and conversation about sex and gender in wine. Look out for our special-guest host, Queen Miss Karen VonSay!

Let’s talk about sex, baby!

Price $50

These wines will also be available at the bar.
