Something new is coming to the harbor, and just in time for Valentine’s Day!
Here is your chance to wine and dine your Valentine along our beautiful downtown waterfront. Look no further. The Downtown Waterfront Alliance presents the first Winter Sip & Stroll, an event that will allow you to enjoy a selection of Northwest wines, spirits, brews or cider along with small bites at participating businesses on Saturday (Feb. 13) from 1 to 5 p.m.
Modeled after the very successful Sip & Stroll held this past summer in July as part of the Gig Harbor Wine & Food Festival, the winter version will take patrons on a tour of beautiful downtown Gig Harbor for mingling, nibbling and sipping inside a number of great local businesses serving as stroll stops. Each stroll stop offers a different selection of wine, craft beer, spirits or cider. Many will offer delicious small food bites, some with a sweet “Valentines” appeal for the holiday.
The Alliance is offering complimentary transportation utilizing Pierce Transit’s Gig Harbor Trolley throughout the downtown waterfront. Participants will have a wonderful opportunity to acquaint themselves with the variety of establishments that downtown Gig Harbor has to offer while enjoying Valentine’s weekend. It’s a great time to “love the wine you’re with!”
Participants will receive a tasting glass, 15 taste tickets for alcohol, and a map to stroll through the downtown waterfront. Heritage Distilling, 7 Seas Brewing, The Harbor General Store, The Weathered Cottage, Finholm Market and Sea Hags are just some of the 13 stroll stops for tastes of wines, spirits and brews from the Pacific Northwest.
Winter Sip & Stroll tickets can be purchased online by visiting www.bit.ly/sipandstroll, and are $30 if purchased in advance, $35 if purchased on the day of the event.
The Winter Sip & Stroll is a Gig Harbor Wine & Food Festival event, presented by the Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance and the Rotary Club of Gig Harbor. Volunteers are being sought for the event. Contact the Alliance office for volunteer information and information on how to get tickets, 253-514-0071.
