Diamond in the Rough Sale
Mark your calendar for this popular wine sale. Jim Arnold lines up wines distributors who are liquidating, discontinuing (sometimes for something as simple as a new label), moving out, or overstocking wines of all varieties. Come ready to find some gems -- and buy by the case. Bring a friend and split your order -- it's a great way to stock up for the holidays.

Tickets are usually around $70 with food included.
Available at Kahn's
