Are you a fan of boxed wine? Well, apparently you're not alone, as Le Virtù is honoring the hick hooch with their very first Boxed Wine Bash next Tuesday night, August 28. The idea came about when chef Joe Cicala and blogger Kevin McKenzie were discussing the gamut of wines that show up during Le Virtù's weekly BYOB night.
"Every once in awhile you see someone roll in with a box and plop it on the table," Cicala told Eater. "And, there's nothing wrong with that. So, let's make a night of it that everyone can enjoy."
McKenzie added that there will be a dress code of sorts for the patrons who are joining in the festivities. "We decided on tuxedo shirts for the guys, and leopard print for the ladies. Big hair is optional," he said.
While it's just slated for one night, Cicala said that if it's a success, it might become a regular event at the high end Italian restaurant. Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant at 215-271-5626. You can follow the chatter on twitter with the hashtag #BoxedWineBash.
