These four would qualify as “mature” at 20Something.

On Saturday, November 20, 20Something The New Vintage returns to Fremont Studios. Seventy-five wineries and 15 local restaurants will dole out wine and food samples from 6 to 10pm as KEXP’s Darek Mazzone sets the mood with age-appropriate music.

The ostensible goal of this gathering is to attract a new generation of drinkers to Washington wines. But hear this, young winos: It’s quite the scene, and you are not meant to dress casually. At the various beer events at Fremont Studios, everyone wears hoodies and calls each other "brah." Not so at 20Something. I went last year and was startled to encounter herds of young ladies teetering on very tall heels, their hair straight and silky, their skirts short. And there were even a few suit jackets on the guys, a rare thing around these parts. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to show off your finer garments—and heavens knows that in this city, there aren’t that many—jump on this, because it might sell out.

Tickets are $50. Buy them here.
