On Saturday, Dec. 17 MTV star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino made a special guest appearance at Stew’s Wines of Farmingdale. “The Situation” of the famed reality series, Jersey Shore, soon to be in its fifth season, was on hand to sign bottles of Devotion Vodka for fans.
“Hosting Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and Devotion Vodka this past weekend was really exciting for all of us here at Stew’s Wines,” said Stew’s Wines of Farmingdale Store Manager Stephen Vaughan. “The Saturday before Christmas is generally a very busy one for us, so to have a celebrity bottle signing going on while we had so many shoppers in the store already, it was the icing on the cake!”
Excited fans waited in line patiently to have their bottles personalized with their name and a phrase from the reality show, like “GTL” or “T-shirt Time” written across the middle or bottom of the bottle.
Vaughan said, “It was great that we saw a lot of new faces here at the store and our Team Members also had a lot of fun meeting ‘The Situation.’”
Sorrentino is the brand ambassador of Devotion Vodka, the first sugar-free and gluten-free vodka, which is infused with casein, a protein commonly found in cheeses and milk.
The store reportedly sold 30 cases of Devotion Vodka during the event signing. The event was originally scheduled to be held at Stew’s Wines of Carle Place, but was relocated to the Farmingdale location to accommodate parking for shoppers and fans.
