The holidays seem a distant memory already

2011 is in full swing and the holidays seem a distant memory already. I am very excited about 2011. I really think great things are going to happen this year. We are off to a great start at Mercy and looking forward to new and exciting things for this year. This past Sunday we kicked off our Sunday night live music nights. We will be doing two a month. We will be having live music every other Sunday from 7-9 pm. This is a great way to end your week. An early night with dinner out, a nice glass of wine and some mellow music to relax by. Don Brown and sidekick Bob will be playing Sunday nights. Stop by and catch them. I can’t think of a better way to wind down the weekend!

Now that the liquor laws have been updated and we are allowed to sell wine for off premises consumption we are gearing up to add this service to our Mercy guests. Vincent continues to do a great job at sourcing hard-to-get wines from smaller boutique wineries. You will now be able to get those wines directly from Mercy. We are busy, right now, working on sourcing several really quality Mercy logo items, such as stemware, wine keys, wine boxes as well as Mercy apparel. We expect everything will be in place for us to launch this in the March timeframe. You will also be able to order directly from our website. For those of you that haven’t had a chance to visit our site lately please do. (mercywinebar.com) I think you notice some very appealing changes. The Music of Mercy has been added throughout the site. We have added some recommendations on food and wine pairing as well. Also as reminder that this is a great source to stay updated on who is performing at Mercy each week. Our calendar lists all of the activities at Mercy you will need to know about. For those of you with iPhones we also have a Mercy mobile app that you can easily download and stay updated via your phone.

We hope you are optimistic about the coming year and look forward to serving you at Mercy!!! Make this the “best part of your day”!! Happy New Year from all of us at Mercy Wine Bar!
