Ann “Hippie Chick” Spicer is a multi-talented gal. She can design a restaurant, plant an organic garden, and find great cheap wines. Once married to produce procurer Tom Spicer, Ann is now married to wine deals. That is why we love her. Ann works at Dali Wine Bar and when owner Paul Pinnell takes a night off (hint: every Tuesday), Ann spices up the retail component of the business. Bet you didn’t even know that the wine you drink at Dali is available to buy at low retail prices. It’s a great place to try a new wine and stock your cellar. Or your temperature-controlled shoe closet.
Anywhoo, visit Ann at Dali on Tuesday nights from 5:30 to 8:30 PM, and try one, or all, of the six special wines picked by Ann. All retail for less than 20 dollars. Ann says,
“These are Paul Pinnell-approved little “Gem Wines” & are an excellent value for the $. (Many are closer to 10 a bottle than 20) You can come in have a free taste of any wine or taste all 5 for 10.00, and enjoy the entire medley with dinner or appetizers , then pick a few of these gems to take home & enjoy.”
