Unpretentious Wine Thursday

Bourbon Street Bar and Grill

"You can really distinguish the terroir in this vintage! Reminds me of summers spent in Tuscany!" You know who actually says crap like this at a wine tasting? An asshole. That's why we love Bourbon Street Bar and Grill's perfectly titled Unpretentious Wine Thursday. Once a month, the Fullerton venue features innovative wines (drinkable immediately upon opening the bottle!) paired with seasonal small plates. May's theme is Cajun Fusion Favorites and features vinos from Root 1 Wines. First up is a Sauvignon Blanc with gorgonzola-and-caper bruschetta, followed by Pinot Noir and shrimp jambalaya, Carmenere with Cajun penne pasta, and finally a Cabernet Sauvignon paired with a Cajun dog smothered in chicken gumbo. It's not for the snooty, refined palate. It's for our palate. And it reminds us of summers spent in OC.
Thursdays, 5:30 p.m. Starts: Feb. 20. Continues through July 17, 2014
