Cali Uncorked Festival This Weekend
Beer, wine, food, comedy and music. It's hard to believe, but we found a festival with all that (and reasonable weather forecasted, too!). Locate a drinking buddy or designated driver, and work your way to Silverado's Oak Canyon Park this Saturday for a mellow afternoon.
Featuring live entertainment throughout the event, unlimited drink tastings and a cigar lounge, it sounds better than most dates we've been on. If you're contemplating going, you probably want to keep reading for more detailed info.
A 21-and-over event, both general and VIP admission are still available through their Eventbrite site. Tickets include a commemorative glass for your beverage desires. Designated driver tickets are only sold on site. Cali Uncorked lasts from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., with VIP kicking off an hour earlier. Drinking of the alcoholic variety will last until 4 p.m, so get there early.
Other random things we learned: The first 20 MINI Coopers to arrive will receive free parking, courtesy of Crevier MINI; otherwise, it's $10 cash. Our friends at both The Viking Truck and The Cut are expected to park their luxe loncheras for hungry partygoers. For those requiring sensory overload, seminars and food pairing discussions are planned. Off-duty firefighters will be pouring beverages, with a portion of sales going to the Fallen Fire Fighters Relief Fund. And phone reception isn't the greatest up there, so plan your Snapchats accordingly.
