Get Ready for Grapes & Ale 2014

I am so excited to write this post today! Not only do I get to tell you about one of my favorite CLE events, but I also have two tickets to give away to one of you, my awesome readers!

Join Our Lady of the Wayside for Grapes & Ale - a delicious event that features some of the area's best BBQ, blues and lots of great wine and craft beer. Friday June 27th Progressive Field is the place to be. Sip and sample and enjoy the summer night.

Last year we had SO much fun, and I'm sure that this year will be even better because it's going to be even bigger!
Presented by Giant Eagle, this event combines everything that's great about the season: fine wine, live music by Colin Dussault's Acoustic Side Project, savory BBQ and other tasty summer fare, strolling through the Indians Hall of Fame and lots of fun! You also have access to the craft brew garden and great Chinese auction. Don't miss this amazing night that benefits the many individuals with disabilities that Our Lady of the Wayside serves. 

Premiere Grand Tasting tickets start at just $50 and include all of the above and more! Or Upgrade to the VIP Majic of Wine ticket for $125 for an additional hour of blind wine tasting, passed hors d'oeuvres, complimentary parking, plus everything that's included in the Premiere Grand Tasting! Click here to purchase your tickets. *Pro Tip: It's tons more fun when you have a group of people so get some friends together for a fun night out for a great cause.

Featured restaurants are Hot Sauce Williams, Corleone’s, Famous Dave's, 100th Bomb Group, Battery Park Wine Bar, Progressive Field, Chef Alex & Co and Becker's Bakery.

And a new treat this year is the Cupcake Vineyards Truck Tour stopping by. Their Red Velvet is one of my favorite reds for summer - so smooth and delicious.

*Disclosure: Our Lady of the Wayside provided two tickets for myself and two to give away in exchange for promoting the event. As always, the opinions expressed are my own. *


  1. My favorite local summer beer is a Pearl Street Wheat from Market Garden Brewery but my favorite national craft beer (right now, at least) is the Bell's Oberon Ale. Favorite wine is always a dry red but I think summertime warrants a refreshing pinot noir.

  2. Great event! Interested in seeing the Cuocake Wine Truck.

  3. I love the Sofia Rose wine by Coppola. It's my favorite summer wine. Light and tasty.

  4. Would love to attend this!


Love to hear from you!
