Festivities continue into the night with the annually anticipated Wine Fest, FL Craft Beers and FL Craft Spirits & Cocktail Social from 5 to 9 p.m. The event celebrates New and Old World wines that you may want to break out for your home “happy hour.”
“This year, we will have at least 40 wines, many from smaller vineyards that are real gems, as well as blends from around the world,” said Rotary Club President Rick Perry. The event also features Naples Pub Cycle, serving two craft beers from Momentum Brew House, as well as other craft beers from around the country. Additionally, this is the second year for craft spirits and cocktails. Alligator Bay from Punta Gorda will be showcasing distilled rums and rum punch.
The $45 “Unlimited Taste” wristband ticket provides the best value, or guests may pay per individual “tastes” at the event. Wristbands may be purchased in advance at eventbrite.com. Food will be sold separately with 15 food trucks offering “small bites” for $1-$10, including Ma Petite Creperie, Dutchkinz, Philly Pretzel Naples, Currie’s Smokin’ Hot BBQ, Jimmy P’s and more.
A Sparkling Toast to the Rotary Club’s selected charities happens at 6:30 p.m., followed by live music from the Marty Stokes Band to close out the event. Organizers recommend using Uber for transportation. Receive a discount on uber.com with code: rickp2118ue.
