I had planned on promoting this event much earlier than, well, today. However, lack of power and internet this week sort of got in my way.
That said, it’s not too late to RSVP or even just show up. The Bacchanalian Society, that crazy wine tasting event held each quarter, is being held tonite on Fountain Square.
I’m excited about this one. It’s a beautiful day and Fountain Square is such a nifty place anymore.
More than just a party, the event will benefit Fountain Square
Management Group. FSMG is a nonprofit organization that depends on
sponsorship and private donations to produce hundreds of events on the
Square each year, from the music series, movies, and the market to
wacky one-off events like the Fish Toss, Broomball League,
Cinciditarod, and the coney eating contest.
Suggested donation is $10 per person in advance or $15 at the door.
Your donation gets you admission to the event, wine tasting, DJ
entertainment, and appetizers provided by BlackFinn.
Kevin and I are part of the host committee this time around, so we’ll be there someplace, whether keeping you from stumbling into a truck on Vine Street or putting wines on tables. Search us out and say hi! You might even find me at McCormick & Schmick’s excellent Happy Hour before the event.
There are, of course, rules to the game, which you can find after the jump.
Rules (from the Bacchanalian Society web site):
Bacchanalian Society helps charities to conduct competitive wine
tastings where even the loser gets to take something home. The
competition is based on what we call the "Rule of Three." Huh? Keep reading … and make sure to check out the photos and results from our past events listed below.
