Old Town Wine Crush Music & Comedy Fest

Old Town Wine CrushSeptember is bringing alot of wine fun to Chicago, and this festival is centered in the great Old Town neighborhood.  One of the main attractions of Old Town are its comedy clubs, and they will be in the mix this weekend, September 12 &13.  Comedy will be featured in the O'Brien's parking lot on both days, while music will be at the North Avenue stage, highlighted by the Gin Blossoms on Saturday.  Here are more specifics:

There is a $7 gate donation which will give you access to all music, activities, and demonstrations.  The money will also benefit the Old Town Merchants and Residents Association, along with Chicago 2016.  For an additional $40, you will receive a souvenier glass and 10 tastings (1 oz. pours), from a choice of over 30 premium wines.  Marimar, Chateau Graville-Lacoste, Au Bon Climat, Flowers, Ridge, and Bodegas Fernandez are some of the highlights.  $15 for an additional 10 tastings. 

A cooking stage will feature demos from Old Town Brasserie, Kamehachi, The Fudge Pot, Adobo Grill (go say hi to Matt), and Dinotto Ristorante.  There will also be some grape stomping, a la "I Love Lucy", available through preregistration of two-person teams for competition.  There is only room for 8 teams per day, so make sure to get on the list quickly.  If you need more info, check out their site.  Go have some fun, and tell us all about it!
