Vast might seem like its just for Oklahoma Citys well-to-do, but that wasnt the vision of Devon Energy Corporation co-founder Larry Nichols. The restaurant and its spectacular view, like the tower it sits atop, belong to the people of the city.
Thirst Wine Merchants managing partner Alex Kroblin said the same goes for wine. Thats the driving message of Wine for the People 5:30 p.m. March 24.
We try to find wines that retail for $20 or less, Kroblin said. This is an event to be shared with the people, so we keep the wine prices in line with that.
This months event focuses on Australian wines from importer Vine Street.
This will be a cool opportunity to try some wines that might defy your notions of what Australian wines are like, Kroblin said. Vast always does a great job pairing food with the wines. Its one of the more fun events we get to do.
Tickets are $30-$35. Visit vastokc.com. Vast is located at the top of the Devon Energy Center tower, 333 W. Sheridan Ave.

Rather than let March 27 have all the fun, Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar, 1845 Northwest Expressway, decided that International Whisk(e)y Day should be all month long.
The restaurant celebrates International Whiskey Month (which it just created) with weekly whiskey classes 4-5 p.m. each Tuesday through March 29.
Classes are $20 and include whiskey tastings hosted by guest experts.
Each week, were focusing on a different region of whiskey, said Spencer Henrion, assistant general manager. We have a spirit specialist who teaches a basic knowledge of the distilling methods of specific whiskeys, which grains are used and how the flavor profile comes through.
Remaining classes include Japanese Whiskey March 22 and American Whiskey March 29. Call 405-582-2253 to make reservations.
