It is the time of the year in the Northwoods when we are all starting to get a little stir crazy. We’ve had a taste of summer time and 70 degree weather, and just this week we got a reminder from Mother Nature that winter isn’t quite over yet. That has many people looking for activities to get out of the house and find something to keep them busy. This month the Chamber would like to offer you an option to do just that. Spend a night out on the town with friends and enjoy the Rhinelander community.
On April 28, the Rhinelander Chamber along with NRG Media and the Rhinelander Brewing Company, will be hosting Hodag Hops and Vines. This beer and wine tasting event will include a variety of breweries and wineries from around Wisconsin who will be on hand to not only sample their products, but answer your questions about the different varieties, how they are made, what makes them different from another brand and most importantly, if you enjoy the items you taste, where you might be able to purchase them here in the Rhinelander area.
Not only will breweries and wineries be featuring their products, a variety of Rhinelander restaurants will be on hand with samples of their delicious offerings. Holiday Acres, the Northwoods Banquet Center, Trig’s and the Rhinelander Cafè and Pub will each have their own offerings of treats for you to sample throughout the night. We’ll also have plenty of other entertainment. Dave Drivas will be playing music for us all evening, and throughout the night we’ll have a variety of raffle drawings and some great prizes for you to take home.
If you have never been to an event like this before, we hope you’ll join us. It truly is meant to be a fun night out on the town, and the chance to try some new and different food and drink items. We hope you’ll also take the chance to use the evening as an excuse to visit one of the other restaurants in town or other retail shops and attractions. Stop by Hops and Vines for a bite before dinner, or hit up an afternoon movie before heading over to the event. I want you to take an evening for yourself and enjoy it!
Tickets are on sale now for Hodag Hops and Vines, which again is April 28, from 5 to 9 p.m., at the Northwoods Banquet Center in Rhinelander. You can get tickets in at the Chamber office, Trig’s in Rhinelander, the Rhinelander Cafè and Pub, NRG Media and Northern Coffee Haus. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. If you’d like to order over the phone we can do that as well. Just give us a call at the Chamber, and we can take care of it for you.
So mark your calendars for the 28th, and come out and enjoy an evening on the town in Rhinelander!
