Calling all oenophiles, grape nuts and wine lovers. You’ll want to mark Friday, June 7, down in your calendar. That’s when the Arkansas Times Celebrate the Grape is happening in downtown North Little Rock, in the Argenta Farmer’s Market space, at Sixth and Main streets. There’ll be more than 200 wines representing all the major categories and varieties, from buttery chardonnays from Napa to rustic Malbecs from Argentina. Think of it like a liquid buffet — a chance to sample a good slice of what’s on the market for the price of one nice bottle of wine.
Even better, the ticket includes delicious food from Argenta Market, Cafe Bossa Nova, Crush Wine Bar, The Italian Kitchen at Lulav and Reno's Argenta Cafe, and music from Rodney Block & The Real Music Lovers and The Rex Bell Trio featuring Kasie Lunsford.
The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance, or $30 at the door. Buy them here.
Arkansas Times Celebrate the Grape is sponsored by Mercedes of Little Rock, Riverside Subaru, EGP PLLC Accounting Firm and benefits the Argenta Arts District.
