The Savvy Lush User’s Guide

Here are some definitions to help you make the most of The Savvy Lush:

Red of the Week

A great bottle of red OR rosé under $15 found in or around the Twin Cities. Expect a new wine to be revealed each Thursday(ish), depending on inspiration and sobriety.

White of the Week

Same idea as the red, only a great bottle of white OR bubbly under $15 found in or around the Twin Cities.

Skank of the Month

How can I explain? Say you’re at a bar and they’re trying to pawn off some “Mystery Shot”: it could be some kick-ass, delicious whiskey; it could be some yicky sweet kamikaze slosh. This is that kind of mixed bag, only The Savvy Lush rolls the dice so you won’t have to. It may be a great, ultra-cheap budget wine that becomes your new dirty little secret, or it may be some stank-ass, crappy “wine” whose true home is in a brown paper bag lying next to a urine puddle in a dark alley.

Snob of the Month

Any bottle that is over $15, but is sooooo wickedly sexy you want to make sweet, sweet love to it, take it out for breakfast, and shout it’s praises from every roof top! Let’s face it: some splurges are just plain worth it.

Bright Shiny Things
