Last year we checked out Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes and had such a great time. There was great food galore from restaurants across Fairfield County with plenty of beer and wine to try. This year on 4/12 from 7:30-10:30 we can expect the fourth annual Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes to be even better as it moves into its new location: the Stamford Innovation Center in the heart of downtown. There will be plenty of room to mingle at this classic landmark building…and plenty of room to get your tastebuds tingling, too. In addition to the restaurants, caterers, cheesemongers, and bakeries, there will also be drinks and representation from breweries. When you’re in between drinks and courses, be sure to check out the great silent auctions that will be available (follow them on FB for early previews of what will be up for auction). Finally, if you stick around towards the end, you can take part in the live auction with amazing trips, gifts, and packages. We are also very proud and excited to be one of the media sponsors for this amazing event that raises vital money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that fights leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.
Tickets are $75 each or are $125 for a pair. Also, you may order VIP tickets for $100 each or $175 for a pair which includes a VIP gift bag, a raffle ticket, and a LLS wristband. You can also donate if you can’t make it or even purchase an ad to be played during the slideshow. As of now, these are the hops, grapes, and tastes that you can toast to:
A Delicious Affair, LLC
Back East Brewing Company
Cotto Wine Bar + Pizzeria
DiMare Pastry Shop
Ganim’s Garden Center and Florist
