Winefest Returns to the Basque Block

Friday, Aug. 17

Dealing with constant complaints from a spouse, cries of "we're bored" from out-of-school-for-the-summer children and stories of miserable dates from friends? Blow off some steam and trade the everyday whinefest for a winefest that only happens once a year--and is a lot more fun.

The Basque Museum and Cultural Center will host the 15th installment of its annual Winefest fund-raising event Friday, Aug. 17, on the Basque Block.

A slew of local wineries and distributors will pour tasters of domestic and imported varieties of adult grape drinks, and if you like what you taste--or have a few too many tasters and get the buzzed-buying itch--bottles and cases will be available for purchase.

Soak up the booze sloshing around in your gut with tapas from Basque Block restaurants, and then take part in the thrilling action of a live auction. Or, if competitive paddle raising isn't your bag, cruise by and bid on goodies during the silent auction.

Entertainment will be provided by Basque event staples the Oinkari Basque Dancers.

Proceeds from the event support the Basque Museum and Cultural Center's education and cultural programs.

Tickets are available in advance (and at a discount) by calling the Basque Museum.
