This is a 21 and over party so leave the kids at home. It’ll only be about 2 hours or so long, God willing your sampling doesn’t become O.D. Wine Fest begins at 6:30pm and ends at 10:00pm. Included in your $35 ticket ($40 at the door) you’ll get wine tastings from all participating wineries and vinters along with samplings from participating restaurants. I’m no wine connoisseur so I’m probably most excited about the restaurants because Addison is filled with tons of great eateries! You’ve got Blue Mesa Grill, Einstein Bros, Cantina Laredo, Chow Thai, Clay Pit, Houlihans, Sambucca 360, Paciugo, Grand Luxe Café, Fish City Grill, Taco Diner, The Ranch at Las Colinas and Sweet Tomatoes to name a few. You also receive access to a large Silent Auction. There will be Live music playing throughout the evening as well in case you want to ‘wine’ up ya body! Valet parking is available for a nominal fee, but self parking isn’t available due to the limited space.
If this is your first Wine Fest and you’re wondering what to wear, you can come comfortable but dressed smart! Some people will wear business casual as a few may be coming from work anyways, but if you choose to wear jeans just jazz it up a bit. There are ladies who will be in cocktail dresses and gents who may decide to sport a blazer.
Wine ya body down to the Flight Museum for some grown up fun!
