For the first time in 19 years, U.S. wine consumption per capita is outpacing France and Italy. Currently, Americans account for 13% of total global wine consumption. The largest growing demographic of wine drinkers are Millienials, and their top reasons for wine purchase are varieties of wine by the glass and the ability to pair it with food. Core wine drinkers want and expect choice. Fleming’s continues to buck its competition, offering its guests 100 wines by the glass.

On Sat., April 20, Perry Czopp of The Coffee Chop will share show guests how to brew with a Chemex, V-60 and Aeropress, sample the same coffee brewed in each method, then get to make their own cup themselves – all while noshing on bites from the Crêpe Bar kitchen.http://www.thecoffeechop.com
