“Napoleon Wineamite” Features Local Restaurants, Delectable Wines, Sunday Brunch, an Exclusive Tasting Experience and – New This Year! – a “Movie Under The Stars.” Gosh!
Bust out your sweet dance moves and come have a “killer time” with Napoleon, Pedro, Kip and Lafawnduh at Tampa Theatre’s 14th annual WineFest, Napoleon Wineamite. This year’s event features snacks and samples from local independent restaurants, sips from the finest wineries, an evening of rare, top-rated wines and – for the first time this year – a “Movie Under the Stars” screening of this year’s theme, Napoleon Dynamite.
And while the theme may be silly, the purpose is most serious: Now in its 14th year, the annual WineFest is Tampa Theatre’s biggest fundraising event of the year, benefitting the historic movie palace’s artistic and educational programs as well as its ongoing preservation and restoration.
Like Pedro, returning event chair, John Wolfe “offers you his protection” as Tampa Bay’s Senior Project Manager for CBRE, a member of the WineFest committee for the past 6 years, and the chair of last year’s record-breaking success, “Monty Python and the Holy Grape.”
Patrons are encouraged to dress as their favorite character or come in a Napoleon Dynamite-inspired costume!
