A few weeks ago, we let you guys know about some wine-filled fitness events going down at Newtown’s Crossing Vineyards and Winery this summer, and you guys went BONKERS. Naturally. Post-workout wine is exciting, after all. And since you all were so excited about those events, we thought it would only be the kind thing for us to do to clue you in on three more wine-plus-workout events on our radar this summer. Check them out below.  Read more »

Nick Elmi Is Opening a Bar

Last May Nick Elmi went to work on securing a liquor license and expanding into the former coffee shop that is next door to his Laurel. The initial plan was to add some seating and install a bar. But here we are more than seven months later and that hasn’t happened.

So when we caught up with Elmi at Philly Cooks, we asked him what was up. Elmi, whose Laurel has been named the top restaurant in the city for the past two years, has decided not to mess up the good thing he has going at Laurel. So Laurel remains BYOB though he does now offer a $60 wine pairing for those interested.

Wine Tasting Class at Amada

Amada” basically translates to “beloved” or “sweetheart,” so it’s very fitting that Amada is hosting a class for people to learn all about my sweetheart: wine. On Sunday, Apr. 26 from 2:30-3:30 pm, Alexandra Cherniavsky (Amada’s Sommelier) is teaching a wine tasting class.

The class will feature wines intended to perk you up after a dreary winter, so you can expect sparkling wine from Raventos i Blanc, a rosé from Amestoi, and other bright, white wines. Also, light tapas will be served, and the whole thing only costs $25, which is a pretty good deal for wine and tapas.

You can call (215)625-2450 to make reservations.

UPDATE: This event is now sold out. Amada says to stay tuned for the next one.

Y’all really know a good thing when you see it, eh? Two weeks ago, when I posted about the new Run the Vineyards 3.2.1. Challenge coming to Kutztown’s Blair Vineyards on July 13th—a race that combines a yoga session with an obstacle course and wine-tasting at the finish line—our readers pretty much went bananas. In fact, I ran into race director Ken Culbertson at an event last night and he said the Challenge, a first-time event for his race management company, Good Day for a Run, sold out in 10 days. Now that’s impressive people.
