December 2, 2009 -- Annual Sparkling Wine Tasting

It’s that bubbly time of year again when the stars align for the annual Sparkling Wine Tasting at The City Wine Sellar. This year’s bubbles will be popping on Wednesday evening, December 2nd, from 6:00-7:30 pm with a selection of six sparkling vinos, one of which is always a REAL champagne.

It’s a Special, Spectacular, and Sizzly event that gets better and better each year! This year, we will add Stylish, Sumptuous, and Snazzy! Upon the suggestion of a customer and employee, we’re making this year’s Sparkling Tasting a “Dressy*” evening. Ladies, wear your chic Little Black Dress and pearls, or your drop dead gorgeous Little Red Dress and ruby bangles. Gentlemen, arrive looking sharp in your tux or dinner jacket. We’ll clink glasses throughout the evening while mingling and sipping champagne, and toasting to friends and fun times.

Cost is $15.00 per person; RSVP Highly Requested.
*Dressing up is optional. Jeans and a Tee is perfectly fine as well.

November 20, 2009 -- Denny Blue

With a name like Denny Blue, how can it be anything other than some mighty fine blues tunes? Denny will help you mellow out with some acoustic and alternative blues on a fine Friday evening in downtown Elizabeth City.
"Denny Blue has been performing on the Outer Banks, NC & Tidewater, Virginia since the early 90's. His style includes heartfelt vocals, banging guitar & slide work with soulful harmonica licks. If you like a mixture of original & covers done in the artist's own style, you'll like his show. He has opened national act shows for Blues slide man John Hammond, Jr, Folk Rockers "the Wallflowers" & new alternative artists' "Carbon Leaf." Check him out, you won't be disappointed.
