San Francisco, CA
It can be rough when five out of five potential V-day dates declined your tender declarations of affection. But instead of drinking yourself into a stupor at a dismal dive bar, gently push aside the bourbon and venture over to Press Club. Wrapped within the warm hues that only a wine cellar can provide, this posh place offers tastings of reds and whites from eight of the oldest, most prominent wineries of Northern California. Let the wine country come to you, as not only you can sip a variety of quality wines, but you can also talk wine with the representatives from each winery who are present. The average cost of a tasting is $4-$6 and feel free to purchase what you liked, on the spot.
Better than the stale peanuts at that dive bar you ditched is Press Club’s rotating menu of sweet and savory appetizers, such as the charcuterie plate. And better than that shabby dive bar-stool is Press Club’s swanky décor filled with a comfy couches and rich walnut woods. Even if one of your potential V-Day dates eventually changes her mind and decides to take you up on your declaration of affection, you better tell her she can find you at Press Club.
