Wine Flights at PF Chang's -- DEAL!
I took my mom to lunch at PF Chang's -- had not been in perhaps a year -- and discovered their new-ish deal on wine. Chang's has always had a lot of nice wines by the glass. As with most restaurants, the good stuff is pricey. But here's the thing: you can select any three wines from the extensive by-the-glass list to make up your flight. The official pour is 2.5 ounces, and the price is $9 no matter which wines you select. We were just at 20 Brix, a wine-oriented restaurant in Milford, and their "taste" size is 2 ounces, with prices all over the place--you can easily pay $4-$5 there for one two-ounce pour.
I was not intending to have wine at lunch today, but simply could not resist this offer. Furthermore, the bartender was a little generous with those pours--I don't think anyone is back there measuring.
I had a marvelous flight of Adelsheim Pinot Gris, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay ($11 a pop there if you just want a glass of that), served in the cool tower pictured here (not a great photo, though, sorry). Our server said they'd had this deal for almost a year. I say, go for it before someone in top management realizes that this is a bargain for the discerning wine drinker!
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
