1/2 Price Bottles of Wine

Empty wine bottle                                       Image via Wikipedia
So, the other night hubby and I were out and happened to stumble upon another half price wine (by the bottle) night and we got to talking about how much we like these because it gets us to try new things (and usually more expensive things than we might otherwise).  Or it allows us get what we usually would, and save a bit of money. (**Please note, most restaurants have limitations on which bottles are ½ off, it is often the bottles under $100, but they each have slightly different limitations).
I thought it would be fun to put together a list to see if we could go out to eat every night of the week and get half priced bottles of wine (not that we ever eat out every night, but I just wanted to see if you could, if you wanted to). And then I thought, of course, I should share it with you all.
Okay, so here’s what I came up with after some fairly minimal research.  Please let me know if you know of additional ones (or if any of my information is incorrect) and I will adjust the list.

                          Noah Grant’s—65 South First Street, Zionsville, 317/732-2233;

Wednesday:    Meridian – 5694 N. Meridian, Indy, 317/466-1111;

  1. Great round up. I know a lot of wine folks who routinely hit the Ruth's Chris Northside wine night. Also, a tip, if you want a more expensive bottle, the somm or manager will almost always make you a deal.

  2. Kincaids in Clay Terrace has half-price bottles on Sundays.

  3. Arni's on 96th Street has half-price bottles on Saturdays. Just enjoyed one last Saturday. :)

  4. Great idea. This next proposal might be way too big but I would like to see a list of places that have food happy hours (half price appetizers, etc) and related details. Love the blog.
