The 15th Annual Save Mart Grape Escape

Many of the finest events in Sacramento and its surrounding areas are hosted by none other than the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau. Folks looking to swig and spit gobs of red and white wine incessantly, while swallowing much more, are hereby summoned to this outdoor shindig, held at Cesar Chavez Park. Expect great drinks and eats from countless wineries, restaurants, breweries and much more. Additionally, there will be some wonderful live music and, hopefully, a delightful breeze to accompany a possibly perfect Saturday night. The event only lasts three hours to avoid any liability and, more importantly, to keep you from dancing drunk on the stage naked with the live bands (I did it two years ago). If you were wondering why the event didn’t happen for a year, let’s just say myriad changes in state and local alcohol laws were addressed and let’s move on. Whether you’re a wine connoisseur donning an ascot or a simple weekend drinker, this ticket has something for everyone. Well, not everyone … 21 and over only. Sorry, kids. Tickets start at $45 online at Let’s do this!
