Wine O’ Clock:
8 Awesome Places
By Shen Mascariñas
Come wine o’ clock, the saying “everything in moderation” should also be treated in moderation.
You see, there’s a problem with just one glass of wine. Aside from the terrible case of bitin, you can expect yawns, droopy eyes and light-headedness to follow soon after (aka kabaduyan).
In these places, you’re sure to surpass that unavoidable stage and transcend into the happy daze we all need after a long day. Think sulit wine-on-tap. Now who wouldn’t want some of that?
