An opportunity to taste some custom-selected Zinfandels paired with In-N-Out burgers was something we just couldn't pass up. And while it certainly isn't tough to pick up a Double-Double and some fries from the nearest In 'N Out and uncork a bottle of red to sup on at home, the fact is we're far less oenophiles and more Oh, no, I don't know! when it comes to wine selection.

In a loft downtown, Ian Blackburn's Learn About Wine hosts numerous events aimed at upping your wine savvy and often amusing your palate. In a series of Friday evening events launched last month, Learn About Wine is doing what they call "Blind Date" tastings of particular varietals. This doesn't mean you're there to make a love connection with a fellow attendee (although, hey--who's stopping you?) but rather you're there to find out what suits your palate without knowing what you're drinking.
