Maynard James Keenan Wants to Rock Your Grapes Off


This Saturday, Palate Food + Wine is hosting an in-store wine tasting with none other than Maynard James Keenan—frontman of Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Pucifer—featuring wines from his Arizona-based Caduceus Cellars. Uh, awesome.

Just to remind you, this is Maynard we’re talking about here—the dude who baa’d like a sheep for 40-or-so minutes at a Church of Scientology show. The man who has gone on stage in a black string bikini, mime makeup, and a curly brown woman’s wig. But sure enough, he also runs a well-respected sustainable wine company in the desert. Who knew?

The event takes place this Saturday, July 11, at Palate in Glendale from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is $5. Reservations required. Contact [email protected] to grab a spot.
