This Friday evening between 5:30 and 9 PM downtown San Mateo is the place to be for the 14th annual San Mateo Downtown Association’s Wine Walk. This year the Weatherman is promising WARM weather making this event even better than previous years. It’s always fun walking around downtown on a warm night and Friday is lookin’ good.
Here’s the deal; purchase your tickets in advance for $25 or the day of the event for $30 and what you get is a sampling of wines from 27 local wineries, tastey hors d’oeuvres and great music to make the evening even better. You’ll need proof of age when you pick up your wine glass and off you go. Obviously safety is important so keep in mind San Mateo’s trusty Police Department will be there in force so keep to moderation, okay?
Advance sale tickets can be purchased at the Downtown Association’s office at 385 First Ave; Trag’s Market at 303 Baldwin; Borel Private Bank at 160 Bovet Rd.; and the San Mateo Public Library at 55 West Third Ave. Tickets can be purchased or exchanged for wine glasses on Friday night at 3rd and Ellsworth beginning at 4 PM.
The Wine Walk allows you to wander downtown, go visit some of the businesses there that you may never have been to before, enjoy the wine and hors d’oeuvres and stop and for dinner afterwards. What’s not to like? Remember, parking can be hard downtown, especially with the Friday night movie crowd, so plan your parking carefully.
If you see me along the way, do stop and say hi. Alex and I be there enjoying ourselves.
