QPR: Favorite Wines Around $10

QPR stands for "Quality Price Ratio" which means how good it tastes versus how much it costs, the main equation that's on every wine lover's mind.

Right now is an interesting time in the history of wine: in the USA, we are experiencing the craziest economy in decades in conjunction with a golden age of cheap wine.  In an unhappy way, the timing is perfect. 

Affordable every day wines around $10 (that you'd drink every day!) have never tasted better, had higher quality, nor been as deliciously dependable as they are now.  The good news in the 21st century is that you can get a stellar tasting bottle way under $10 any time if you shop right.  The bad news is, it looks like you're going to need this bargain for the rest of the 21st century.

Come taste 6 + of the Wine School's favorite around-$10 wines: sparkler, whites, reds, and more.  Bread, cheese, olives & antipasto served with class.

How To Taste Wine And Why! (Class + Dinner)

Here at the Boston Wine School, we believe one of the best ways to learn about  wine is with food. This single session wine experience begins with a 2-hour class and wraps up with a delicious wine pairing supper that will help you understand some of the fundamentals of pairing wine with food.

We'll begin with the art of wine tasting in all its unabashed sniffing, swirling and swishing. Then the class will taste a few of the essential wines you need to know — New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, red Bordeaux, French Pinot, California chardonnay, and others.

This is one of the most popular classes and a great introduction to both reds and whites.

TASTING CLASS

Santa Ema Sauvignon Blanc | Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay
Susana Balbo Rose' of Malbec
90+ Cellars Pinot Noir | Chateau Roc de Segur Cabernet-Merlot

Introduction to Burlesque (April 2014)
No previous experience is necessary. This series of classes was designed and created with the novice dancer in mind, but experienced dancers looking to learn classic burlesque moves and techniques will also greatly benefit. Through a series of lessons and demonstrations which build upon one another, students will learn the fundamentals of burlesque dance. At the end of the course, you will have the building blocks to create your own fun and flirty dance routine. Over the four weeks we'll discuss burlesque-related topics like music selection, the art of costuming, and performing for an audience. Burlesque is a terrific form of expression for any woman. It builds confidence, comfort with your own body and it's great exercise too! This is a four-session course. All classes are from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. and are taught at B.A.B.E. (119 Braintree St., #206, Allston, MA 02134). Cost: Drop-in Students: No registration is required, just come on over. Each class is designed to stand alone. The drop-in fee is $30 and must be paid in cash to the instructor at the beginning of the session. Pre-paid Students: Register and pay for the class on-line at least 24 hours before the class starts and save $5.00 Please Note: there are no refunds or transfers if you pre-register and cannot attend. Pre-registration is $25 and can be done on-line for one class or multiple classes! Course Commitment: To register for the full course for $99, please select "Monday, April 7" as the date you wish to register for, and then select the "All 4 classes" ticket. Sessions: Session #1 (Monday, April 7): Week One starts things off right with some Burlesque Basics. You'll learn that classic burlesque move, The Bump, plus how to turn your everyday steps in struts and slinky walks. For the striptease lesson, you'll be learning how to remove Long Gloves. We'll have some loaner gloves available, but if you've got a pair of your own, please bring them! Session #2 (Monday, April 14): This week's move is The Grind, those oh-so teasing and pleasing types of hip circles that are essential to classic burlesque. Combine it with Week One's lesson, you get the classic "bump 'n' grind". Week Two's striptease lessons are on Skirts and Shirts. Please bring a skirt with a zipper and a blouse with buttons. Since you'll be removing your clothes, you may want to wear shorts or leggings and a tank top underneath or fancy lingerie, depending on your comfort level. Session #3 (Monday, April 21): This week's move is The Shimmy, how to quiver and shake to the delight of your audience. We'll continue to build up our movement vocabulary that now includes both bumps and grinds. Week Three's striptease lesson is all about Stockings. Please bring a pair of thigh-high stockings to class. After you learn some Floorwork to highlight your lovely gams, we'll practice the provocative stocking remove. Session #4 (Monday, April 28): This week's move is Tassel Twirling -- the ultimate burlesque trick! You will need to bring pasties with tassels to class for this. We'll have a few pairs for sale. If you're uncomfortable appearing in just pasties, please wear a close-fitting tank-top under your bra and affix the pasties to that. It's harder to twirl, but we don't want anyone struggling beyond their comfort level. Week Four's striptease lesson is Removing a Bra. Please bring a back-fastening bra to class. See the above note about pasties and comfort levels. That applies here too. For extra fun, we'll be playing with Feather Boas, that quintessential burlesque accessory. If you have a boa, by all means bring it, but we'll also have some loner boas and a few for sale.

Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas
This event is 21 and over
Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas


Life has a way of letting us know what we're supposed to do and when we're supposed to do it. We can distract ourselves, but life is persistent. Jessica Hernandez knows that. She knows that no matter what gets in the way, time won't stop for anyone. Be it struggles or triumphs, Hernandez is ready for whatever, whenever.

This malleability expresses itself in so many facets of Jessica's life. The first-generation American grew up in and around Detroit. There are few regions more impressing as the nitty-gritty of Rock City and it left its mark on the 25-year-old artist. Her voice is instantly recognizable. Its strength and soul are matched by an honest vulnerability. Whether she is singing heartfelt words about someone that has left this world too early, or belting out a danceable tune through a big smile, Hernandez is unforgettable… especially with the ultra-talented Deltas behind her.

Never one to adhere to norms or outside pressures, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas have learned lesson after lesson along their rise as one of Detroit's favorite bands. They've honed their craft in sell-out shows and tours than span the nation. It's easiest to classify Hernandez by seeing the people that come to every show. All races, all ages, all fans of good music.
