WHAT: Join Thirsty Girl, Marilyn Wines and Binny’s South Loop as they host a tasting of the latest releases of Marilyn Wines portfolio (Thirsty Guys and Thirsty Groups are also welcome!). Known for their Marilyn Merlot, a spin on the iconic Hollywood blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn Wines celebrates their 25th Anniversary this year by releasing a special edition. The 2009 Merlot comes in a special screen-printed bottle highlighted with a silver signature and 1950s publicity photo of Marilyn Monroe at her best. The tasting is an opportunity to sample collectible Marilyn Wines at no charge and purchase the wines as gifts, to stock a cellar, or simply to uncork and enjoy. In a nod to one of Marilyn’s most famous screen songs – Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend — attendees at the event will have a chance to win a pair of either real or faux diamond earrings (subject to contest rules and state regulations).

With a shared passion for food, wine, and travel this rapidly expanding group connects with one another through live events, local chapters, the Thirsty Girl website, award-winning TGTV video series, and active social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter.
