We’ll always have Paris Cork

Felicitations are in order for Cork Wine Bar who took home the RAMMY for Best Neighborhood Gathering Place during the 1940s Casablanca themed celebration at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel on Sunday night. To thank all of their friends and neighbours for their loyalty and support, Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts, the owners of Cork, are inviting you to join them for a celebratory Champagne tasting on Saturday, June 12th at 3pm at Cork Market and Tasting Room. I’ve been learning a lot about Champagne recently as I prepare for a quick trip to the region with my husband this summer so I really hope to have the time to drop by! Whether I do or not, I certainly want to extend Cork Wine Bar and all the RAMMY 2010 winners my congratulations for their wins this year.
