WINE WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2017, 5-9pm
As our hearts go out to our Wine Country neighbors, we invite you to join us in supporting them. For the next two weeks we will suspend our regular Wine Wednesday 25% discounts and instead will we will donate 50% of all wine sales - by the bottle and by the glass - to North Bay Fire Relief, a fund dedicated to distributing 100% of all proceeds to help the victims of this unprecedented tragedy. Half of Gather’s wine list is from the counties affected by the fires and as one vintner told the press: “The best thing (way to help) would be to feature local wines. If we can continue to sell wine, we can continue to pay our employees and get back to ‘normal,’ as quickly as possible.”
PLUS BETWEEN NOW AND OCTOBER 31, EVERY DAY AT LUNCH, DINNER AND BRUNCH WE WILL BE DONATING 5% OF ALL “WINE ON TAP” SALES. Please join us in raising a glass to hope, resilience and healing.
