Lake Street Council annual wine & beer tasting

By Joyce Wisdom, ZoeAna Martinez, and Holly Harrison

Why you should go to Lake Street Council’s annual wine and beer tasting and silent auction on November 8 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at El Nuevo Rodeo:

1. Wine, beer, soda, coffee, Mexican food. Your ticket gets you access to 24 wines from all over the world courtesy of East Lake Liquors, Harriet Brewing growlers galore, JOIA sodas, Peace Coffee coffee, and El Nuevo Rodeo eats that will make your body strong, fight illness and produce healthy skin. Well maybe not exactly, but this mix of local and global is a perfect representation of the diversity and “mom and pop” cultures of so many Lake Street businesses, and your tummy will thank you for the gastronomical tour of everything our fundraiser has to offer. (Provided that you tour with moderation, of course.)

2. One-stop shopping. Hundreds of local businesses donate to our silent auction, resulting in a room full of goodies for you plus gifts for your loved ones. In past years we’ve had everything from gift cards to specialty bikes; T-shirts to TVs. Bidding on silent auction items means you can treat yourself and cross everyone off your holiday shopping list—we’ve got both your grandmother and your hipster nephew covered. (We release a full list of auction items before the event, but to get a preview of the goods as they come in, find VisitLakeStreet on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram.)

3. Hanging out with your community. This fundraiser draws Lake Street lovers from everywhere, and the bulk of the crowd calls Lake Street home in one way or another—they live here, they own businesses here, they work here. Gathering all these people in one room is a once-a-year thing, but the resulting good vibes should last you until next November.

4. Supporting Lake Street Council. The best part of all this wining and dining and shopping and networking is that it’s all for a good cause! Lake Street Council works hard every day to engage, serve, and advocate for the businesses along our six-mile corridor, from France Avenue to the Mississippi River. But we can’t renew and strengthen these communities without your help. This is our only fundraiser of the year, and it’s your chance to show Lake Street Council that you dig what we do and want us to succeed.
