September will be Party Time (Excellent!) when WineFest 2017 invites Wayne and Garth to warm up the couch for three days of Wine’s World, Friday, Sept. 8 – Sunday, Sept. 10.
On Friday, a two-tiered Wine Tasting invites you to taste dozens of boutique wines, sample favorite fare from Tampa’s top independent restaurants and bid on premium silent auction items representing Bay area retailers, restaurants, services and attractions.
On Saturday, the Theatre’s historic stage will be expanded to seat more than 275 for the elegant Wine Pairing. The multi-course menu, created and catered by Mise En Place chef Marty Blitz, will feature delectable small plates expertly paired with exquisite wines. Table sponsorships for the are available; please contact Maggie Webber at email@example.com or 813-274-7257 for details
Then on Sunday, bring your blankets and bean bags and spread out on the extended stage for a “Movie Under the Stars” screening of the Mike Myers/Dana Carvey classic Wayne’s World, which is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its release.
And though the themes may be silly, the purpose of Tampa Theatre fundraisers like BeerFest and WineFest is most serious: together, the two events raised $162,000 last year to benefit the not-for-profit historic movie palace’s artistic, educational and community programs, as well as its ongoing preservation and restoration.
Participating wineries and restaurants, plus more details and tickets coming soon.
Guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend WineFest tasting and pairing events; valid Government-issued ID is required for entry.
