Lucky’s Liquor Store, the finest liquor store in Nanaimo brings weekly cooking classes and tasting events.
Have you ever wanted to try a new wine or beer, but don’t want to buy the whole bottle? What if you don’t like it? Lucky’s tasting events are designed for this in mind. A variety of wine, beer and cocktails are served to compliment or contrast different dishes served.
Our monthly Beer Club has been going strong for more than 5 years. This free craft beer tasting event runs on the third Thursday of every month at 6:30 pm in the Lucky’s Gourmet Loft. This event is open to the public and seating is limited. Every month a new brewery is featured and guests will enjoy a few servings of what they have to offer. Keep you eyes peeled for upcoming newest craft beer event, Brews and Bites.
Cooking classes are held in Lucky’s Gourmet Loft frequently, everything from cheese, to samosas, to fancy multi-course meals with local chefs. Not only will you learn how to make gourmet dishes, but our wine and beverage experts will teach you what to pair with those dishes.
Attending one of our cooking classes is like sitting in the front row of your favourite cooking show; except that you get to ask any questions you like and eat the food!
If you’re more of a wine person, fear not. Our wine events are held every few weeks and our sure to get your taste buds morphed. Wine Club events are a great opportunity to meet new people, try new wine, learn more about wine and the fundamentals of pairing food with wine. Our guests enjoy a different theme every time, samples that suffice a small meal and a casual, fun atmosphere. Be aware these events do sell out very fast, so it is important to book your tickets early.
Intimate and informative, our talented chefs give you detailed information about re-creating each dish at home. And let’s not forget about the wine! Whether we have a local winery, winemaker, sommelier or choose a new favourite from our every-growing selection of wines; we make sure you have a perfectly paired glass to accompany each course.
Our yearly Vancouver Island Indulge event in June is much anticipated by our wine followers. Local wineries, craft cideries and distilleries participate in this quaint and intimate evening of everything Vancouver Island. Each guest will receive their own engraved tasting glass and a enjoyable evening of food and wine.
