Grapes & Ale 2014

We could hardly wait to go to Grapes & Ale this year. As we parked and walked over to Progressive Field, we were talking about how much fun we had last year and wondered how it would compare.  We were not disappointed. As always, the night flew by and we were wishing it could last longer.
From years past, we learned to eat early. It gives you a good base for all the alcohol plus the vendors run out of food if you wait too long. We grabbed some wine from my friend Joel at Debonne and made a beeline to Corleone's.

They may be known for their Italian food, but they had our favorite food of the night: chicken skewers with mango salsa and a side of chili
Our 2nd favorite and also the vendor most sticking to the BBQ theme was Famous Dave's.  Not only is their BBQ delicious, their corn bread is amazing.

We loved being able to experience the Cupcake Wine Truck. 
Not only did they have tasty wine,  they also served...cupcakes!  
They were a nice addition to the bakery table by Becker's.  Pro tip: eat dessert first -  it disappears FAST!
Another fun vendor was Skinny Girl. I loved being able to sample the new flavors and I also grabbed a cute key chain.

After sipping our way through the wine area, we headed to the beer Pavilion.
Try to remember to pace yourself so you can sample the craft beers. 
They have a nice selection and it's fun to hang out on the patio and check out the Indians Hall of Fame. Couldn't wait to wee the newest addition Omar!

The beer slide is a Must Do. 
If you hit the bulls eye with your mug of beer, you're entered to win a prize. It's so much fun even if you don't win.
