Music for “Open That Bottle Night”

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

In the year 2000 a new holiday was introduced by wine critics Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher. They called it OTBN or "Open That Bottle Night". The idea behind the holiday is to get people to open and enjoy a significant bottle that you've been saving for a special occasion. I think it's a great idea, because if you're like me, you have a bottle laying around collecting dust because it's too good, too expensive, or too special. Well, OTBN gives us the excuse we need to enjoy the good stuff with friends. After all, we spend the extra money on "the good stuff" so we can enjoy it, not horde it away! So tonight, why not invite some friends over and enjoy the very best bottle of wine or other liquid delicacy that you've hidden away?

Here at the Y! Playlist Radish we've done a bunch of playlists related to alcohol. Below are some that will add great background on Open The Bottle Night.
