So how was the Silo Point wine tasting?

A week or two back, I blogged about this wine tasting on the 19th floor of the new Silo Point complex. A few MS commenters said they bought tickets and were planning to go to the tasting, which happened last night.

Well now I'm curious: How was it? Were the wines, view and company worth the $15 price tag?

We were there! The spot is pretty damned cool, with views spanning the entire city. They even had telescopes set up...which could've gotten a little creepy.

The wines were decent, and for $15, who am I to complain. The way I'm feeling this morning, however, is a result of the trip to Alexander's Tavern AFTER the wine tasting...

We were there, more because we hadn't been to Silo Point in about 9 months and wanted to see the progress. The views of the city are fantastic and the Style Lounge is very, very cool.

For what it was, $15 for French and Italian wines from The Wine Market, cheese and stuff, and the knowledge that all the proceeds were going to Charity, I think it was pretty cool.

I understand that they sold out at 50 people and had nearly another 50 requests for tickets. It also looks like they may be doing something like this every month with a different charity benefiting at each event.

I went with three other people and took pictures, I'll put those up later. The whole thing was pretty nifty - decent wine, insane views of the city (except for the fact that it's basically industrial complexes completely surrounding it on all sides). Don't think I'll be shelling out 650k for a condo any time soon but the facility is pretty impressive.

Did anyone drop a penny from the rooftop?

Here's a few photos I took:

Here's my tiny little gallery from the tasting
