Come Celebrate the First Annual Sun BrewFest at Mohegan Sun!

18 Sep

Update:  a winner has been selected.  Using a random generator, we got the number 2.  Because Rob was the second person to comment about a beer he was excited about, he wins.  The catch:  he must grow the mustache. 

You have probably heard about Mohegan Sun’s WineFest, a huge celebration of wine and drinks that requires a map to find your way from booth to booth.  Well, they decided that they didn’t want to leave out our other favorite alcoholic drink:  beer.  Yes, beer lovers, here comes the first annual Sun BrewFest.  Two days of hop-loving action with over 100 different brews, including craft, microbrews, imports, limited edition, and even malt liquors.  Keep track of your favorites with a scorecard and drink it all down with your own souvenir tasting glass.  While you’re drinking, check out how beer is made, watch live demos, and even take part in some seminars.  There will also be food available from Michael Jordan’s 23.sportcafe, Jasper White’s Summer Shack, Bow & Arrow Sports Bar, and even more local restaurants.

$20 per session, includes souvenir tasting glass (also check out hotel packages)

Session 1: October 6th, Noon – 4:00pm
Session 2: October 6th, 6:00pm – 10:00pm
Session 3: October 7th, Noon – 4:00pm
A portion of the proceeds benefit Snowball Express (benefiting the children of fallen military soldiers)

Surf’s Up @ Summer Beach Food + Wine Tasting to Benefit United Way – Calf Pasture Beach, CT

25 May

We know where you’ll be Tuesday, 6/12 from 6-8 pm:  Stew Leonard’s Grill at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk.  Drink this up:  over 75 different beers and wines to taste.  Many of the wines to be sampled are Connecticut produced, and lots of the beer is also local and actually microbrew.  Don’t stop there, though.  Stew Leonard’s will have lots of food to munch on:

Crudités basket with two dips, international cheese platter with artisan bread, an assortment of sliders, mini lobster rolls, mini crab cakes, California rolls with ginger sauce, Sicilian bruschetta, and marinated grilled shrimp with wasabi sauce.

So, you’ve got the food, you’ve got the drinks…what else would make this perfect?  Yup, some tunes!  The local legend, P.J. Pacifico, will be performing live…it’s just one more reason to head down.  In addition, you’ll be able to take part in a silent auction and a Chinese raffle.  All proceeds from the 8th Annual Beach Food & Wine Tasting will go towards United Way of Coastal Fairfield County.  Danny particularly loves this charity because they help to make sure that at risk children do well in school and are prepared for a successful life.

Stew Leonard Jr. says that this is one of the most popular events that they hold each year and that it sells out quickly.  So, Omnomivores and changemakers, get your tickets today.  They are $40 a person and can be purchased at Stew Leonard’s Wines of Norwalk, by clicking here, or by contacting Mary Magner of United Way of Coastal Fairfield County at (203) 339-6308.
