On Friday June 28th, Progressive Field will be filled with one of the hottest parties of the season. Presented by Giant Eagle, Grapes & Ale benefits Our Lady of the Wayside, which provides residential, respite, transportation and day programming services for individuals with developmental disabilities in Cuyahoga and Lorain Counties.
Famous Dave's, YOLO Battery Park Wine Bar, Hot Sauce Williams, and the 100th Bomb Group are joined this year by Corleone's, Mavis Winkle's Irish Pub and the Wayside Grille. They'll be showing off their tasty BBQ skills as you sip over 200 wines and mingle in the main concourse.
