URBAN WINE & JAZZ WALK
The Urban Wine & Jazz Walk is a self-guided tasting tour that encourages participants to explore local bars and restaurants, sample fabulous wines, and experience great music along the way. Sip, savor and saunter your way to various local bars, conveniently located along the light rail from uptown to downtown (making it a cinch to get around). Each participating location offers wine samples for $2 or $3, which includes a delicious snack (while supplies last). Bring cash and tip your servers. Print maps will be available at all participating locations and at the Downtown Info Center (1 E. Washington St., Ste. 230). See website for full participant list.
