There is no better way to experience all of your favorite restaurants in one day than at the Downtown Food & Wine Fest! You’ll have the ability to sample wines from Sea Glass Wine, Keel & Curley Winery, Cooper’s Hawk Winery, and more!

In the Liquid Lounge, we’ll have Bud Light on tap, along with a Craft Beer Garden featuring Stella Artois, Goose Island, and other local drafts. Like any of the sixteen wines sampled throughout the event? Purchase a glass and sip away. Or, check out our spirits bar, with refreshing margaritas from Tres Agaves tequila.

What’s even better about enjoying a drink at the Liquid Lounge? A portion of ALL bar sales go to The Christmas Toy Shop, a local non-profit that makes sure no child goes without a special gift during the holidays.

Feeling hungry? Purchase sample-sized plates from 25 of your neighborhood’s finest restaurants – with prices that are easy on your wallet, all $8 and under. Take a culinary journey and try out Italian food, Asian Fusion, succulent seafood, classic steaks, Latin & Mexican food, delectable desserts, and crowd favorites like wings and fries.
