Cava Wine Bar
185 W. 80th St.
West Side Wine BarApparently this place, in a quiet-yet-lively residential area of Manhattan's upper west side, occasionally has free wine tastings at various nearby venues. It's really close to a few chic bistros & a Ricky's (drugstore) location, so you can pick up snazzy accessories, go to dinner, & buy your wine all on the same street. It's also close to the USPS Planetarium APC, so consider writing a postcard while you're at a bistro to send off while you're in the neighborhood!
