From 4th of July Fireworks to Bastille Day Tastings: Visit 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits in Downtown Minneapolis This July!

Time seems to fly by faster the older you get. I just realized that 2019 is just about half over, and for the life of me, I can’t figure out where the time went...

Anyway, next Thursday is Independence Day. For those of you who are not leaving town for “the cabin” or “the lake” over the long July 4th weekend, let us remind you that most of the best places to watch the fireworks in downtown Minneapolis are VERY close to 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits. Gold Medal Park, the Stone Arch Bridge, the whole river front, and of course, the rooftops of just about every apartment building/condominium are wonderful spots to enjoy that most traditional of July 4th traditions, saying ,”OOOOOH and AHHH!” after each explosion in the night air.

Remember, this is thirsty work!! It is hopefully going to be warm next Thursday night and possibly humid. You are going to want to stay hydrated with your favorite beverage. 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits not only has an impeccably curated selection of wines, spirits and craft beer from which to choose (many of which you can taste in our store each weekend!), but we will be open on July 4th from 8 AM until 10 PM…just as the fireworks start! We spend a lot of time on the telephone on July 4th telling people that we are open til 10 PM….now YOU are in the know, so save the phone call, and come see us instead.

Please mark your calendar for Sunday, July 14th to join us for our first (annual if you make it so) Bastille Day French Wine Tasting. We aren’t going to feature wines from every district of France, but we will be showing seven very good, AFFORDABLE wines from Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, Provence and Languedoc. The wines are going to be delicious, and you folks make the best company…as well as making the event exciting.

The year may be half over, but the fun is just beginning at 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits! Don, Rob, Darren and Cory are constantly on the lookout for what is newest and best in adult beverages, as can be seen by the explosion of hard seltzers and ciders of every flavor that are new to the store, as well as a continuing string of terrific wines that Don has managed to negotiate wonderful low prices. If we aren’t already your go to store for beverage alcohol, we are striving to become just that!
