“WINE DOWN” AFTER THE VANS US OPEN OF SURFING WITH SURFING CHAMPS APPEARING AS CELEBRITY WINETENDERS
Sealegs Wine Bar In Downtown Huntington Beach Will Offer Fans The Intimate Experience Of Mingling With Top Surfers From Around The World While Satisfying Their Cultured Palette
The surfers competing in the upcoming 2014 Vans US Open of Surfing know how to ride a wave, but do they know a Cabernet from a Cuvee? SeaLegs Wine Bar will put them to the test, as owners Alicia Whitney and Lisa Nonemaker host nightly events featuring surfing champs as “celebrity” winetenders, powered by Group Y, during the week-long competition. Think of them as bartenders serving wine and beer in the evening after completing seamless frontside turns while battling high tides and adrenaline rushes all day.
