Game of Thrones Ale pre-release party. It doesn’t get as much screen time as the gratuitous amounts of sex, but so much booze flows through Westeros that it was only a matter of time before somebody cashed in.

Wine, Women & Shoes. This has to be every (modern) woman’s dream: Live out a Sex and the City-style fantasy of sipping wine, buying shoes and attending a fashion show all in one day.

Valley Forge Military Academy, 1001 Eagle Rd., Wayne. 610.989.1200.

Wines of the American Revolution. Because apparently our founding fathers had nothing better to do, when not fighting for our freedom, than to drink their wigs off, come brush up on your history by learning about some of their favorite wines.
