I see my Twitter feed this morning and noticed something weird, the hashtag #winerave.
Some folks–more specifically Max Leer and Adam Vourvoulis, wine curators from Los Angeles’ foodie scene– made some bioluminescent wine cocktails, added glow sticks, topped it off with DJs and voila, a wine rave was born. I missed this one, but I think I may just have to keep an eye out for the next one.
This is a new concept to me–and I’m an EDC and wine devotee, separately normally. But there was a so-called wine rave at a club in San Diego in 2011, so perhaps not so new? I don’t think it ever caught on as a continual event (Their twitter feed stopped tweeting in 2011). The owners of Honeycut, a club, in downtown LA, seem to want to make it so. They had a similar wine rave theme for their New Year’s Eve bash.
Wine Rave’s mission statement, according to its website: “Wine rave is a state of mind. Can you free yourself from color: its sensations as pleasure; as life. Stop swirling. Derobe. Become bioluminescent. Feel a stranger. Listen. Laugh and have fun. Wine rave.”
Now to fully understand wine rave–which charged a $20 entry fee and included a wine cocktail–you need to see it to believe it. Not quite EDC, not even close really, but the brains behind wine rave sure got heart.
Not your typical wine and cheese (nix the cheese) party, am I right?
