Last night, one of our favorite tech-nerd-CEOs, Ben Lerer, helped his company welcome friends to experience a "Rioja Midnight Tasting" at Yerba Buena on Avenue A. The event, which was a collaboration of Epicurious, Spain Wine Collection, Tempranillo, and Thrillist, seemed to be one of the website's parties NOT to miss. More photos below...

The event was possibly just a way for Lerer to brush up on his wine knowledge needed to impress the ladies. However, it could have also very well have been a celebration for the website who has been nominated by Silicon Alley Insider as "Most Buzzed About Site." Go HERE to vote for them!
