Orlando Elite yelpers had the chance to celebrate National Wine day on Wednesday at a brand new wine store in the bustling Mills50 district! The Funky Monkey Vault hosted us and shared their posh new wine store is a very special way. Not only did we get to enjoy some delicious wine and fabulous food from their restaurant family including Funky Monkey Wine Co. and Bananas, we also go to experience one of their fun and stunning drag shows.
Kristen P summarizes this event perfectly: "This was a lot of fun. Who doesn't love drag queens? They were great. I totally want to go see their show. Also the food was amazing." Everyone had a chance to let their creative side out and wear some magnificent wigs to show our personalities. Most of the ladies participated, I guess the gentlemen were a little too shy. We had short. curly red to long, blue and sparkly. Brenda H shared that this was a "Super fun event! Can't really go wrong with wine and a drag show"
Everyone also enjoyed 20% off of all of their purchases that evening with such a fabulous selection of wines, decor and books all about vino appreciation! Huge thanks to the Funky Monkey family for hosting us, Vitamin Water for hydrating us and the awesome Jim White for photographing our colorful event, make sure to check out all the photos here.
Jacqueline F shared that "There was plenty of food to munch on and wines to taste. I even found one of my most favorite wines. I loved the selection, and of course the entertainment can't be beat. The atmosphere is perfect for shopping, wine tasting, or just spending time with friends."
