Wine Tasting - Friday, November 13th

PA3, IvyPlus and Cornell Club of Central NJ present:

November Tiger Tasting: Discover Your Personal Wine Palate

A Perfect Pre-Triangle Show Mixer

Are some wines better than others, or are there only wines that you like and wines that you don’t like? Find out on Nov 13, as Mark Censits, Cornell alum and Proprietor of award-winning wine shop CoolVines, takes you on a tour of your personal wine palate. You’ll taste your way through a broad array of wines of all different styles from all over the world. You’ll learn what “off-dry” means, what tannins taste – or feel – like, what “terroir” is. In short, you’ll learn the major factors that make wines taste different, and begin to identify your own personal wine palate.

This is the perfect way to get yourself excited for the Triangle Show later in the evening; we will gather from 6-8PM at Princeton's newly constructed Community House, an organization committed to closing the minority achievement gap in Princeton. Community House is located at 58 Prospect Ave and provides programs that bolster early childhood literacy, promote the mastery of fundamental academic skills, and create early awareness of post-secondary opportunities for underserved minority youth.

Please arrive as close to 6 as possible, the first glass of wine will be served upon arrival and the program will begin promptly at 6:30 to get theatergoers out in time to make it to the Triangle show - Store Trek; The Out-of-this World Shopping Spectacular (who but triangle would boldly go where no musical-comedy has gone before?). Refreshments will be served.

PA3 at PU's Community and Staff Day

On October 3rd, PA3's Kristin, Lydia, Reilly and Bettina braved the rain and set up a booth at Princeton University's Community and Staff day. Kids of various ages stopped by to color their own sign with the PA3 logo on one side and "Go Tigers!" on the other. You may have seen them being waved during the game!
