Bottomless Mimosas

Sat, Sun at 10 am–2 pm.

Bottomless anything is good, especially if it involves champagne. At weekend brunch at Ma'ono or Agrodolce, your mimosa ($12 and $14, respectively) never ends. And at Golden Beetle $15 mimosas are bottomless at weekday lunch AND weekend brunch—and they're made with fresh juices and house-made syrups and shrubs. (GB says, "Please note: Your glass will actually have a bottom, for ease of drinking and mess-related reasons, however, we will keep refilling it for you.") $12-$15.

Free Wine Tasting at McCarthy & Schiering

Sat at 11 am–5 pm.

Website

McCarthy & Schiering claims to be the oldest wine shop in Seattle; it is not. But they were recognized as retailer of the year by Food & Wine in 1998 and as one of the "top 10 small specialty shops featuring wines from Piedmont and Tuscany” by GQ in 2004. They offer free wine tastings at both their Ravenna and Queen Anne stores every Saturday, with winemakers often there for discussion purposes. Free.

Free Wine Tasting at Champion Wine Cellars

Sat, 12–5 pm.

Website

Champion owner Emile Ninaud possesses Seattle's very first wine license: He opened in 1969 and works there to this day. Though he's French by birth, he's made Champion a snobbery-free zone, with wine novices welcome and an emphasis on good value for whatever your budget may be. His Saturday drop-in wine tastings—from the more than 1,500 bottles in stock, with tons from France—are all about "obscure wines from obscure regions," he says. FREE.

Free Wine Tasting at DeLaurenti

Sat, 2–4 pm.

Website

DeLaurenti in Pike Place Market offers free wine tastings upstairs in their wine department every Saturday, and—bonus!—the nice people there pair the selections with some of their more than 250 kinds of cheese, samples from their wall of olive oils, and other assorted tastinesses. Past tastings have included ports paired with Stilton cheese and (separately) Veuve Cliquot champagne (!). Check their website to find out which wines they'll be uncorking. Free.

Free Wine Tasting at Portalis

Sat, 2–6 pm, Sun at 11 am–4 pm.

Website

Civilized but not-too-schmancy wine shop Portalis offers free tastings on Saturday and Sunday. A lot of regulars show up, particularly Ballard-farmers-market shoppers on Sundays. Those people sound smart. Free.
