2. Wine Not?
Where: Crimson Hotel Filinvest City Manila
Up to Sept. 30:Â When we were little, we were told that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Crimson was quick to act on this prescription and will offerÂ unlimited glasses of theÂ famous Australian wine Willowglen and platters of cheese to go with that until Sept. 30.Â What do you say? See you at Crimson Hotelâ€™s 8th floor Lobby Lounge and weâ€™ll share a toast to good drinks, greatÂ food and even betterÂ company.
