One of the best parts of summer, for me at least, is that it’s finally the right temperature to drink rosé.
After a long, cold winter, I’m ready to sip on some delicious pink bubbles. Plus, in light of last week’s events, I’m even more eager to support causes that give back to our community.
So, I’m happy to share that tomorrow, 4/25, local haunts belly wine bar, the blue room and the delightful provisions store central bottle are honoring Venice’s annual rosebud festival, Festa del Boccolo.
For every glass or bottle of rose sold at these locations tomorrow, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the One Fund. Sounds like a good time to relax for a minute in the nicer weather and stock up on some summer staples – pink bubbles.
A little history lesson: Venice’s Rosebud Festival is celebrated on St. Mark’s Day, which honors the patron saint of Venice. To celebrate his feast day, Venetian males traditionally give their beaus a red rose on April 25th.
