DMV Bouncers, you'll be glad to know that live music and events are back at City Winery Washington DC! Before the pandemic, one of our favorite events to attend at City Winery was Vine Of The Rhyme's monthly wine and album pairings that matched up select wines with music from an album that was celebrating a milestone anniversary in a happy hour setting. The last one to happen was in February 2021, but thankfully that wasn't the last one ever! Vine Of The Rhyme officially returns to City Winery DC this month with two special events celebrating two special artists: Beyoncé and Res.
On Wednesday, September 8th, Vine Of The Rhyme's DJ Pheelin' It and Dr. DeepCrates will be joined by special guest host Tracey Lee and producer Ojizz to pay homage to King Bey's sophomore album B'Day during Decanted: B'Day. Beyoncé released B'Day on September 4th, 2006, so this event will be in celebration of the 15th anniversary of this classic album. Guests will learn which wines to pair with their fave jams from this Yonce project and will get to raise a toast to the queen's 40th birthday as well. Decanted: B'Day goes down on September 8th from 5:30 pm-8 pm in The Loft at City Winery Washington DC and tickets are on sale now and moving fast.
Two weeks later on Wednesday, September 22nd, the VOTR crew is back at it with their first-ever live appearance from an artist when Res herself comes through to discuss her debut album How I Do for its 20th anniversary. At Decanted: Res Live! there'll be lots of wine, music and stories aplenty from Res in conversation with DJ Pheelin' It and Dr. DeepCrates. In addition, later in the evening, the beloved singer-songwriter will grace the audience with a performance. Decanted: Res Live! jumps off on September 22nd from 5:30 pm-8 pm in The Loft at City Winery Washington DC and tickets for this Vine Of The Rhyme special edition are currently on sale.
If you live in the Washington, DC area and love wine and a good time, Vine Of The Rhyme is where you need to be this month. We'll be in the house at both events with a Shop @ SoulBounce pop-up shop, too, so we look forward to seeing our DMV Bouncers out and about again.
Please note that all guests attending Decanted: B'Day and Decanted: Res Live! must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours for entry and masks are required in all indoor public spaces.
