A glass of wine and a great movie go hand in hand, we think it is the perfect pairing. And now is the best time of year to enjoy both as theaters are filled with Academy Award contenders, and wineries all over the world have their new releases on the shelves ready for enjoyment.
Dallas Uncorked wants to help with this enjoyment by throwing our 2nd annual happy hour wine and movie night with major motion picture film producer, long time film critic (now with KXAS-TV/NBC5) Gary Cogill at Veritas Wine Bar on February 21 from 6pm-8pm.
Gary will lead guests on an interactive discussion of what to see, what not to, and mainly, what is sure to win this year's "Oscar" for all of your favorite film catergories. Gary will also share some of his favorite stories of being on the set working with actors like Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman, and of course favorite stories of the 30+ years of being in the business and interviewing almost every actor in the world.
The night will benefit The Dallas Film Society, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting film, filmmakers and film education through annual events, like the Dallas International Film Festival and The Art of Film, as well as Charity:Water, bringing clean water to those in need around the world.
Each ticket will include two glasses of wine, a sparkling wine toast and light appetizers. Additional wine will be available all night at special happy hour prices. We will also have a limited and exclusvie live auction of film focused items to help our donation make that much more of an impact.
Tickets are $40 each and available here. This event sold out fast last year so don't delay in getting your tickets early. We look forward to seeing you there.
