2 new wine shops for First Avenue



Two new wine shops are coming soon to First Avenue… There's Urban Wine & Spirits at 45 First Ave. between East Second Street and East Third Street… in the former beloved We Buy Gold & Diamond storefront…



There is a web address, though it doesn't appear to be active yet…

Then! Up the Avenue between East Fifth Street and East Sixth Street … someone is taking over the former Tinto Fino space



We don't know anything about this shop just yet..

Urban. Because we're in a city. Get it?

And artisan because we're gullible and unimaginative, get it?

And don't forget they are specializing on wines.

"Specialising" ?

"On artisan wines" ?

I hope they were drunk on their own hooch, "artisan" or not. Otherwise their English doth sucketh.

"Specialised"?

Sounds like the British are trying to ruin our good language once again.

We could use another decent wine shop, i.e. well priced carefully selected wines...or just going to Astor. Maybe one of these will be that.
