CHINATOWN— Wine Rave, the wine cocktail-fueled phenomenon backed by Maxwell Leer and Adam Vourvoulis, is popping up yet again, this time at Golden Dragon in Chinatown. Inspired by the film Only God Forgives, the concept #onlywineforgives will break away from the rave feel for an edgier vibe. There will be wine cocktails, freezing cold Tsingtao, and, of course, the requisite wine shotz. Wine Rave starts at 10 p.m. this Friday, April 10, and is cash only.
