The Las Vegas Food & Wine Festival will be held September 15-18 at the SLS Las Vegas, while the next-to-last Wine Walk of the year in Vegas will take place September 17 at the Town Square shopping mall on the “South Strip.”
For more information on those events, check out yesterday’s blog.
Today, I’d like to tell you about a couple more wine-focused events in Sin City. Both are held monthly, and both are held on Wednesday. So if you have a few vacation days stockpiled, consider taking a few days off for a mid-week trip. At many Las Vegas properties, you can stay four or five nights mid-week (Sunday through Thursday nights) for the price of two nights on the weekend (Friday and Saturday nights).
Here’s a look at the mid-week wine fun…
- Art & Wine: A Perfect Pairing — This event is held at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art on the second Wednesday of the month from 5 to 7 p.m. It typically features new art at the gallery, wine from the Bellagio wine cellar, plus an interactive wine and art conversation with BGFA director Tarissa Tiberti and Bellagio director of wine Jason Smith.
- Wine Away Wednesdays — On the third Wednesday of each month, Tivoli Village in the Summerlin neighborhood of Las Vegas hosts this event which includes two glasses of wine, passed appetizers and the opportunity to browse offerings from local businesses.
If you can’t make it on the third Thursday, head to Tivoli Village on any evening except Monday or Tuesday and check out the View Wine Bar and Kitchen. In addition to a nice wine selection, the View features an impressive cheese inventory as well as fine meats — perfect for noshing with friends.
As always, we encourage you to call ahead and verify events and dates whenever planning a trip. Especially in Las Vegas, the schedules seem to be written in desert sand rather than stone, and can change in an instant.
But here’s the good news: Even if the event you were hoping to attend has been “un-scheduled,” there’s always something wine-related to do in Sin City.
