Best Deal This Week: Free Wine and Oysters for a Buck at Rialto

Not many things in life are sweeter than free wine (except for, of course, free beer or vodka), but in this case, free wine reigns - and you can slurp down the priceless juice at Rialto Restaurant & Bar every Wednesday.

Wine Director Brad Nugent gives diners a sampling of several wines every Wednesday, and the line-up changes from week to week (check Rialto's site for each week's offerings). This week, Nugent is pouring Jorge Ordonez & Co. Moscatel Seco, 2009 as well as Alvaro Palacios' Garnacha/Carinena, 2006.

In addition to the wine, oysters are a buck on Mondays, beginning at 5:30 p.m. and until the last oyster is shucked. Rialto even uses local oysters for this deal - their Island Creek Oysters come fresh out of Duxbury, Mass. Local food for a buck? I'm in.

  1. I've had the pleasure of attending one of Rialto's Wine Tasting events and it was a lot of fun! Let me know if you'd ever like to meet up for one!
