The sumptuous soiree is at John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse (One Courthouse Way in Boston) and boasts two exciting days of rioting.

Friday 9/25:

VIP Riot 7 – 11 p.m.

Free food pairings; Special celebrity Crash Courses

$65, limited ticket sales

Saturday 9/26:

Riot One, 1-5 p.m., $45

Riot Two, 6-10 p.m. $45

What’s new to Wine Riot: A savvy Wine Intelligence Unit to help you “strategically conquer the Riot,” as Morgan First, Marketing and Community Director of The Second Glass, eloquently puts it. Hey, no objections here.
