On Tuesdays, Magnums Take Center Stage at “Blue Duck Uncorked”

From our friends at Blue Duck Tavern...

Blue Duck Tavern and Blue Duck Lounge, located at Park Hyatt Washington, on the corner of 24th and M Streets, NW, will feature rare magnums by the glass, with four-ounce pours available until each bottle is consumed each Tuesday evening. This opportunity is part of the weekly “Blue Duck Uncorked” wine program. The magnums featured for May through July are presented below.

WHEN: Every Tuesday from 5:30 to 10:30 PM.

WHERE: Blue Duck Tavern is located at the Park Hyatt Washington on the corner of 24th and M Streets, NW, Washington, DC, 20037. For additional information, please call (202) 419 6755, or visit www.blueducktavern.com.

WHY: Every Tuesday evening, Blue Duck Tavern will be pouring a specially selected rare magnum which is not found on the restaurant’s featured wine list, for a "taste" as a part of the “Blue Duck Uncorked” series. This experience is exclusively available on Tuesday and the selection of fine wines is chosen by Blue Duck Tavern General Manager Joseph Cerione. It is a rare opportunity to taste these vintages by glass, with each pour priced at $30.
