The IFA Happy Hour

by Kriston Capps

The Internet Food Association would like to cordially invite you to join us for a happy hour on Thursday, April 16. We will be gathering in the lounge at PS7, where space has been reserved from 6 to 8 p.m. for lovers of food and interwebs. Enjoy $3 flatbreads, a $3 beer special, $4 sparkling wines, and good company.

Speaking of sparkling wines, with the weather warming I have sparkling reds on my mind. Napa and Italy may sneer, but Australians take their sparkling reds seriously, and I plan to all summer long. The Rockford Black Shiraz is the best of the few I have tried, but at $60 to $75 per bottle, this 8- to 10-year is a bit pricey for the lazy, porch-oriented consumption I have in mind. A very fruity, very dry Black Chook can be had for just under $20 and holds its own over a barbecue or a night of stooping.

So! If you have strong opinions about the best wines for summer, you should come share them over a happy hour drink next Thursday.

Date: Thursday, April 16
Time: 6 to 8 p.m.
Place: PS7

  1. Here I sit, at your precious happy hour, one week early


  2. PS7 thought it was today as well. I’ve been in the IFA-reserved space for an hour!

  3. I should point out that the PS7 folk were quite kind to me, and the arancine were tasty. Hope things work out for next week.

  5. Australian sparkling shiraz is awesome. Try Paringa (available at Whole Foods for like $12) or Shingleback ($15 at costco).

  7. Italians don’t necessarily sneer at sparkling reds…Trader Joe’s has a sparkling lambrusco that’s a bit sweet for my tastes but is definitely red.

  8. Love to make it if I can…I’ll have to try those sparkling reds!!
