Rare Earth Wine Bar (Glens Falls)

I thought I had read a post about Rare Earth Wine Bar but nothing came up when I did a search. My apologies if there is already an existing thread.

We went to Rare Earth Wine Bar (Glens Falls) after shopping in Queensbury recently. My first time, SO had been before.

Newer place. Doesn't look like they have a website so you'll have to look at their FaceBook page. The Yelp perspective:

We enjoyed our wine and food. Started with olives and bread. Goat cheese with black pepper was delicious. Also had gnocchi, SO had bone marrow and I had duck (they were out of my first choice).

This place just has a good vibe. Liked the ambience. Sat at a communal table. Service was friendly and relaxed. Probably not a good place if you're in a rush. Not so crazy about ordering on ipads (they ask if you want a paper menu). Like that they donate to different charities every month. Not sure how the servers feel about no tips. Hopefully their salary is higher to compensate.

Especially enjoyed "A Guy Goes into a Bar . . ." a Joe King book (2000) that was shaped liked a wine bottle. You'll need to make a visit to the powder room to see what I mean.

We will definitely return when we're near Glens Falls.
