Alibi’s cutting-edge wine rating application for smart phones
One of the most exciting aspects of the Alibi’s April 6 Fine Wine and Art Fest is that, in partnership with a company called Secondglass.com, we’ve designed a dynamic mobile phone app that will allow you to see all the wines from participating wineries on your smart phone as you cruise through the event hall. Wines will all be neatly organized by booth, winery and wine category within the application. You will also be able to access information about wine prices and where bottles are available for purchase. And you can comment on the wines and rate them as you sample them, so that all your thoughts are recorded for future use. This information will all be shared and shown in live time on large television monitors at the event. Those that don't have an iPhone or Android can direct their mobile browser on their Blackberry or Windows phone to Secondglass.com and use the mobile website.
Oskar Blues Brewery’s “Canned Beer Apocalypse”
Although not included in the event’s title, the Alibi will be featuring an outstanding beer garden as part of the free samplings being offered at the Friday, April 6 Fine Wine and Art event. The beer garden will host about 30 craft breweries including Ska, New Belgium and, of course, local favorites Marble, La Cumbre and Blue Heron. Ironically, the beer garden actually became the busiest gathering place at Alibi’s last wine event and our spectacular beer lineup garnered rave reviews from attendees.
Stellar South American wines at Alibi’s Fine Wine and Art Event
Due in part to the success of Alibi’s first wine event, Swirl, Swish and Swallow, which created quite a stir among beer and wine aficionados around the city, many wineries that heard we were planning a second event (Alibi’s Fine Wine and Art Event—April 6, 2012 at Hyatt Regency Downtown) immediately came on board to offer samplings for our charity fundraising gala.
