Save The Dates: Memphis Summer Sippin’ Events

Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 29th 2015 504 0

Here’s a heads up on two new-for-this-year events happening later in the summer in Memphis. Both of these shindigs focus on the time-honored tradition of sampling adult beverages surrounded by food, music, and good company.

Margarita Fest

Margarita, Memphis,Tenn.

There’s hot wing, burger, bbq, beer, and healthy food festivals, why not margaritas? The Memphis Flyer will host the first-ever Margarita Fest on Saturday, June 27 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Overton Park Greensward (the grassy part).

Reps from local restaurants known for their margaritas (check out the I Love Memphis list of favorites here) will compete to win the popular vote and decide once and for all who in Memphis has the best. dang. margarita.

Tickets are $25 per person, which includes 15 sample-sized tastings. You can buy full-size drinks and food separately. The Memphis Flyer will donate proceeds to Volunteer Memphis. 21 and up only.

This is probably a bigger pour than the samples you’ll have at Science of Wine.

You’ve heard of Science of Beer (the Pink Palace’s beer tasting and education event) but what about those of us more vine-inclined? That’s where there first-ever Science of Wine comes in. It will be at the Pink Palace on July 31, 2015 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

At the event, you can try wines of all varieties and enjoy hors d’oeuvres from a several local restaurants while learning about the science behind it all through lectures and demos. There will also be a wine pull.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (April 30) and are $55+ fees, which includes all the tastings, bites, and a souvenir wine glass. VIP tickets are $85+ fees and includes early entry, access to VIP lounge, and priority access to lectures. 21 and up only.

Go there:

Science of Wine
Pink Palace Museum
July 31, 2015, 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
$55-$85 (buy tickets here starting 4/30)

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
