However your Sundays tend to look for you–whether it’s weekend errands and household chores or out boating and beaching as if Sunday Scaries ain’t no thing—make it a point to stop in 99 Bottles to wine down and take a break from it all. Why? Because it’s Rosé All MF Day, which means all rosés on the menu (bubbles included) are 25% off all day long. In other words, an excuse to sip pretty with summer in a glass and soak up the good vibes of a Sarasota Sunday sesh.
If you choose to cheers a few in the morning/afternoon, catch 99 Bottles’ Real Deal NY Bagel Brunch (9am-2pm). That’s the time to enjoy an unassuming yet tasty pairing—one that the mimosa simply can’t compete with on Sundays. You’d be surprised how good a chilled glass of rosé tastes with a fresh-baked bagel with palin cream cheese. Go all out with the pink and opt for the smoked salmon on a bagel. It’s an Instagam-worthy shot, take it from us.
And if you’re not able to make it in till later, no worries. Rosé is being poured all day, remember? And food is still being served. On Sunday evenings, catch Tralia taking over 99 Bottles’ kitchen starting at 3pm and slinging Neopolitan-style pizzas. Here’s your chance to enjoy a delicious ‘za with a sparkling glass of Cava rosé. Meanwhile, good tunes flow and good company surrounds in a lively yet intimate space.
Grab a couple of stools along the floor-to-ceiling beer and wine wall (stocked full of craft liquids for your take-home pleasure); sit at the bartop counter where all the action takes place; invite your entire crew and lounge at the couches to toast to a solid Sunday Funday; or head outside under the blue umbrellas at one of the shared picnic tables to people watch the uniqueness that is Downtown Sarasota. Wherever you post up to enjoy some wine and bites is a weekend win.
Not sure what type of rosé you like? Don’t be shy to strike up a convo with one of 99 Bottles’ well-informed bar staff who can point you in the right direction. Enjoying a nice glass of wine here is not meant to be high-brow, pretentious or intimidating. It’s meant to spark conversation and enhance your enjoyment of fine liquids in a lively, local setting. With six still rosé options and three sparkling rosés on the menu—all ranging from super affordable glasses to higher-end labels—Sundays are the perfect day to come in and take advantage of the 25% off deal. Taste the different varietals, ranging from light-bodied rosés of the blush pink color to the more full-bodied, proud-to-be pink rosés. Determine if you prefer the more fruit-forward flavors or the more crisp, drier finishes. See if you can pick up on any berry aromas, citrus or floral notes.
And if all of that sounds much too fancy or out of your comfort zone. At the very least, close your eyes and stab a finger onto one of the rosés listed on the menu and give it a shot. You can’t go wrong. Just remember to sip pretty and pinky up. After all, it’s Rosé All MF Day, and Monday is right around the corner…
