What do you get when you combine over 200 different varieties of wine samples, loads of craft beer samples, nibbles from some fabulous BBQ joints, and live music, all at Progressive Field? It’s Our Lady of the Wayside‘s summertime fundraiser, Grapes & Ale, happening Friday, June 27.
This event continues to grow and will be spread across expanded space at Progressive Field this year. Also new this year will be the Cupcake Vineyards wine truck. I find their white wines particularly refreshing on a hot summer day, so I’m excited for this addition to the event!
Colin Dussault’s Acoustic Side Project will be back this year, playing great dance-able tunes. There will also be BBQ to sample from restaurants including Famous Dave’s, Hot Sauce Williams, and Battery Park Wine Bar.
Tickets are $50 for the premiere grand tasting, which includes wine samples, BBQ samples, admission to the beer garden with craft beer for purchase, and a souvenir glass. VIP tickets are $125 and include all of the above, plus admission an hour early for a special private wine blind tasting. You can purchase tickets online or you can enter to win 2 premiere grand tasting tickets right here.
Here’s how to enter (you can do one, two, three, or all four entries, just leave a separate comment for each time):
