The reception will feature light fare and a tasting of sparkling wines selected for your holiday gathering by Mark Brogna, University Club board member and proprietor of Capital Wine & Spirits on Lark Street. Join us at 6:30 p.m. as we lift a glass to Mayor-Elect Kathy Sheehan, and hear a preview of her vision for the neighborhood, the city and the region.

These wines and others will be available by the glass following the tasting.
