Fried Chicken and Champagne Tasting TONIGHT at Hi-Time!

I was researching wine for a present when my friend at Hi-Time casually mentioned a tasting tonight. It was a 10-second delayed reaction before I realized what she said. Champagne and fried chicken? WTF?! And where do I sign up?
Hungry patrons can stop by between 4:30 - 8:30 p.m. for a six bottle tasting of the good stuff, plus some wing/breast action. And the restaurant providing the chicken just happens to be on one of Edwin's Top 10 lists. Drum roll, please.
Our friends at Hi-Time will be pouring the following: Agrapart, Le Mesnil, Bereche, Nicholas Maillart, Andre Robert 2005 and J Lassalle. No California sparking in this bunch. Only the best to pair with buttermilk-soaked, perfectly fried Memphis Cafe chicken. YES!
Cruise directly to the wine bar, plunk down the $40 and ask for extra napkins. The dishwasher will be working extra hard tonight. Thanks to Veronica for the heads up.
