Tickets are limited, so be sure to get them in advance, but you will still need to check in before you get started on your Walk.
From 5:00-8:00 PM wander the shops of Downtown Sterling, shopping and sampling along the way. Be sure to get your tasting card punched at each of the tasting sites. You will be asked to empty your glass before leaving each tasting location (sorry, no sipping on the sidewalk).
Then join us to wrap up the evening at a Champs on Light Street‘s Banquet Room any time after 7:45 PM for appetizers and prizes! Turn in your punch card to be eligible for door prizes (We’ll start drawing for those at 8:15 PM). Must be present to win.
Cost: $30 per person in advance
Grab your friends and make it a girls night out, or a fun date night with that someone special!
Cost includes your sampling glass, tasting guide, appetizers and your chance to win door prizes!!
Must be 21 to take part.
