Wed night recap: Wine flight at Circa and more

Last night I hit Circa for their Wednesday night happy hour special, $8 wine flights. You get three 2 oz. pours per flight. The bartender started describing the different flights, and I quickly realized that I don’t know nearly as much about wine as I know about beer. “I like white wine,” I told her. “Pick something for me.” So she did.

All three were good but the one on the right was my favorite. I should’ve taken notes for my next trip to the liquor store.

After Circa we moved down the street to Sauces, where our friend Ugly Steve was bartending.

Ugly was one of my bartenders during EP’s: The Early Days. Good to see him back behind a bar, and I predict that Sauces will have a regular Downtown crowd with him there.

After that it was time to hit the Saucer, where they had a tolerable fire sale (Flying Dog Tire Bite) for once. And after that it was on to Hoop’s Bar.

Hung out there mostly, wandering into EP’s when it was time to recycle beer. I always go down to the first floor restrooms so I can see the entire place. Interesting crowd last night.

Hoop’s Bar now has food, and so I got their version of Paul’s Drunkass Wings to go. Their wings are meaty and breaded. Attn Ranch Girl: They apparently get their ranch from the same place as the Saucer.

Plans for tonight: Saucer, then Hoop’s Bar/EP’s. I need to e-mail my friend Kennedy and find out if the “VEP” promotion is happening this week. If so I’ll post details.
