Tonight, Friends of Patterson Park will be holding their 8th annual "Wine Tasting in the Park." The event was actually first started by Hopkins cardiologist Dr. Levi Watkins as a way to enjoy wine with his friends and give the proceeds back to the park. As the years have gone on, more sponsors have gotten involved, and tonight they're expecting about 200 people.
The event will feature food and wine generously donated by the Chesapeake Wine Company, V-NO, Bistro Rx, and DiPasquale's. Each guest will get a tasting glass and the opportunity to sample 2-3 wines at each stand. Guests can also enjoy cheese, fruit, and olive platters.
Live music will be provided by local musician Rob Fahey, whose former band, The Ravyns, had a hit, "Raised on the Radio," on the Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack. No guarantees that he'll play the hit single, but his set of rock and roll is sure to enterain.
To order tickets and get more information, see the Friends of Patterson Park website. All proceeds benefit the organization.
