Jet Wine Bar Is Hosting A Beirut Benefit Week!
Jet Wine Bar, Philadelphia’s “global vineyard”, is hosting a Beirut Benefit Week in support of the victims of the explosion in Lebanon from Friday, August 7 through Thursday, August 13.
During this week, Jet Wine Bar will offer five wines made in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, available by the glass, bottle or to-go. Moreover, guests can look forward to specialty spirits and cocktails made from Arak, the national drink of Lebanon and Lebanese bites. 20% of all sales from the Beirut Benefit Week will be donated to a fund through the Couvent Rouge Winery to benefit the Lebanese Red Cross.
Jet Wine Bar will offer five Lebanese wines, three of which are made by Syrian refugees (Couvent Rouge and Dar Richi). In addition, the bar team will mix up cocktails made with Arak from the West Bank. Lebanese food including falafel, hummus, and skewers will complete the week’s offerings and programming.
