Now, we're not suggesting you come here to get a buzz on, but it is a heckuva lot of fun to do your own wine tasting at the enomatic machines in the glassed in room at the center of Union Square Wines. You'll need to get a pre-paid plastic card from the cashier, and then, you're off! Tasting vino from all corners of the globe, often from small batch producers. Union Square wines carries some 4,000 varieties, so you'll often discover new favorites.
