Although the holidays aren’t officially here, the spirit of the season is in the air. Wondering what we’re up to this month? Here’s what’s happening.

One Market’s sommelier Tonya Pitts is constantly coming up with exciting new ways to appreciate wine, and she’s done it again! For November, she’s hosting a series of blind tasting flights. Oenophiles can test their ability to identify three wines, and the wines will change weekly. The proceeds from the flights will be donated in full to Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired and each flight purchased enters the drinker into a fun contest. A lucky winner will receive three bottles from One Market’s cellar. The flights are available at lunch and dinner throughout November.
