Whole Foods of Sarasota is having TWO drinking events this month. Cathy and I have gone to a number of these and have always had a good time. They vary a lot in turnout, from the free beer one that turned out to be one distributor with 5 beers to the 30 Pinot Noir tasting that clogged the whole store. This month they are having a Summer Brews & Music Festival Thursday, July 13, 7-9pm. $10 gets you a sampling of over 30 American beers. Half the ticket price is donated to WLSR 96.5 Grassroots Community Radio. Los Rumberos will be playing inside with Road Block performing outside. And then on Thursday, July 20, 5:30-7:30pm $10 will get you a sampling of Top Ten Wine Celebratoin Tasting. Half of this ticket price will be donated to G.WIZ, The Hands-On Science Museum. The wine tasting will also have cheeses and I imagine the beer tasting will have some type of snacks also. I haven't decided which one I plan on attending, leaning towards the beer, but I'm sure both will be fun. Hope to see you there!
