Wine, great people and "Game of Thrones" at Voyager? Cheers to that!

The night is dark and full of terroirs (and more) at Voyager in Bay View

April 14 is the happiest of days. And yes, that's largely because it's Milwaukee Day, the most joyful day in the 414.

But it's also the day on which Voyager the wine and cocktail bar at 2212 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. in Bay View expands its hours to include Sunday service from noon to 9 p.m. (it will also open at noon on Saturdays starting April 20).

Those earlier hours also come complete with a delightful new drink menu filled with sparkly "brunchy" cocktails including mimosas, bellinis and the like. That's an awesome addition to your usual Sunday Funday.

But wait … if you're a "Game of Thrones" fan, there's even better news. Beginning April 14, Voyager will host weekly Sunday night screenings of the eighth and final season of the show.

The event cleverly named "The Night Is Dark and Full of Terroirs" will feature wines and beers from Westeros and themed cocktails for the houses of the Seven Kingdoms. Plus, you can snack on a small feast of delicious Carr Valley cheeses, salami, and the like … or even slices of Emil's pizza if you are so inclined.
