It was Socrates I believe that said, “To admit you know nothing is the first step towards knowledge.” Maybe it was Barney Rubble…

 

Regardless, the best way to forget knowing anything is to come by tonight and sample out some amazing wines to knock your socks off and avail your Friday buzz search!

 

Meghan from NovoVino is droppin bombs of super sexy sauce to start off your weekend proper. Great great granddaughter of the freckle-faced Carl Switzer, better known as Alfalfa from The Little Rascals, will be pouring out a verisimilitude of vibrant and vivacious vino that will surely invigorate your pulse and please the senses.

 

Sexy Cali Chardonnay, a smokin French Rose, and a Riesling with the sweetness of a fourth grade Valentine’s Day card rock the whites. The reds will make you step back and kiss yourself like James Brown. American Cabernet and Pinot Noir invade the beaches of France to team up with a Chateau Neuf de Pape to wage all out war on your palate.

 

Once again The Shop is delivering another rock and roll tasting that wants to see all your shining faces tasting out ridiculous reds and wonderful whites.

 

As always, double points on featured wines purchased and if ya don’t know about what that is… just ask and sign up for the loyalty program. We await another evening of wine tasting and chitty-chat with you tonight. Stolat!

Friends in town?:

 

Yo! Got friends or family in town visiting tonight?

If so, you should definitely take them down to Gentile’s Wine Shop for our weekly installment of jazz and wine tasting from 5:00PM – 8:00PM.

 

There are not many places in town that are quite as awesome as Gentile’s for a quick pregame and stock up spot before you head off into your weekend. If you’re going out to dinner or a show with your guests (even if they’re only from the burbs), you should take them to your friendly, local, kick a** wine shop for a taste of world class wine and music.

 

Show em’ how we do it up in the Chi.

 

Bring in a friend or family member who has never been here for 10% off your purchase.

 

Cheers everybody,

Some of you may be a little too young and some a little older, but then there are those who know exactly what we are talking about. We have a truly, truly outrageous tasting tonight.

 

Not only because the wines are spectacular, but Christine from Fine Vines is pouring them out. You might ask, “What makes that so spectacular?” Well, it just so happens that she used to voice not only Jerrica Benton, but also her alter ego and lead singer of The Holograms, the one and only Jem… ergo… truly, truly outrageous!

 

It may seem odd, but if you were a kid in the eighties you know what’s up. So tonight we are gonna take on the Misfits (their songs aren’t better) and serve up some amazing selections as we always do. We are going domestic, but throwin in a Spanish also because the drummer from The Holograms was born in Spain.

 

Double loyalty points on all of the featured wines tonight, and every Monday is Double Points Monday all through April. See you guys tonight for another evening of super sips at The Shop. Cheers.

Witts:

 

Since Polish has resigned his duties here at Gentile’s Wine Shop we have graduated Mr. Matthew Wittman to be your next go to bro for all your wine, craft beer and spirit inquiries this and every Friday for our jazz & wine tastings from 5 – 8.

 

Witts doesn’t surf but where he lacks in his surfing ability he makes up for in his knowledge and enthusiasm for wine and genuine custo serve. Witts is going to pick out of few of his favorites tonight that we can all get stoked on considering we won’t be getting stoked on any waves.

 

Jazz series continues with the wicked gnarly ‘Puiades and the UIC Underground All-star Surf Rock Collective’.

 

Tip the band and say “I thought these guys played surf rock.” for 10% off your purchase of featured wines.

 

Surfs up brah,

Could life get any better I ask you? The answer is, fo sho!
 
We are excited for tonight’s tasting, giggling like school children. Why? Lemme tell ya… Remember what one of the best times in grade school was? Pizza Party!! That is what’s crackin tonight at The Shop.
 
The forecast is looking good and we are teaming up with Gino’s East for a Wine Shop Pizza Party Wine Tasting. It’s time to shed the weather doldrums, it’s time to start having fun again, IT’S TIME… to start rockin and rollin and getting back to high fives, great wines, and good company. There is no other way to do that then to find yourself at The Shop bumping elbows, eating some delicious pizza, and washing it down with some great Italian wines. Tonight is gonna be a laid back relaxation fest of food, wine, music and fun. Get those weekend plans set, and stop in right before to grease the Friday night festivities.
 
Don’t forget about our loyalty program. If ya don’t know, ask. Double points on all our featured wines, and if you bring back your receipt from Gino’s, you will receive 10% off your entire wine purchase through the month of April! Stop in and grab a glass and cheers to good times. See you tonight!

Farewells:

 

Come down to Teezo’s tonight and say goodbye to Matt Szostak (Polish). He’s the 6ft 8in guy that looks like a Polish surfer or someone from the movie Point Break. Polish will always be remembered for his exception custo suave and bro down abilities.

 

Puiades and the Super Heady UIC Jazz Jam Band Allstars hit at 5:30 so us guys here at Gentile’s Wine Shop suggest getting here early while the music is prime and before Slick Back gets to tasted out to say goodbye.

 

The wines this evening are going to be a variety of mystery sauces selected by yours truly and Slick. We will be personally tasting you out tonight so you all know it’s going to be wicked fun and delicious.

 

Ask “Is Slick Back moving back to Poland?” for 10% off your purchase of featured wines.

 

See you tonight,
