Some art, some laughs and a glass of wine

Kim Riggs
Special to the Appeal

Laughs, raffles prizes and Mark Twain weaving his stories will highlight an all new exciting night of laughs from the past. Find a funny story to share with others on how the West was made. A shot or two of whiskey and you’ll be whooping it up with side-busting comedy on the Old West. Great raffle prizes from a gourmet food basket to a day of golfing at the Dayton Valley Golf Course.

There are great reasons to get downtown with cool coffee shops like Comma Coffee and Joe Mango’s, but if you haven’t tried the Wine Walk I highly suggest you do. I went last week and I had an excellent time checking out the new places. I purchased some cool candles and loved the new smoothie place on Telegraph Street. The next Wine Walk is July 7 and for $10 you get a souvenir glass. I started at D’Vine wine, said hi to Kim and Chris Donner, then strolled around the wonderful establishments downtown. See friends, enjoy some great wines and sample a few tasty treats.

When I stopped in at B’Sghetti’s, the owner was greeting everyone and pouring wine. This is a great time and it really is nice to check out the local retailers.

Downtown Wine Walk

WHAT: Great time, good wine and very fine shop to check out.
