Don't miss these events. Buy tickets.

It’s only Tuesday… a little early for the weekend guide. But, you absolutely cannot miss these two Edmonton shindigs. (hint: buy your tickets now).

The Sipping Point
There are two types of wine drinkers, the “it’s perfectly structured with lots of spicy, earth-scented black cherry flavors hinting deliciously at chocolate on the smooth finish” and those who pronounce the “t” at the end of ‘merlot’.

Luckily, wine-lovers of all types are invited to this fundraising bash for the Winspear Centre and Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. The Flavours of BC’s Naramata Bench Wine Tasting & Auction is your chance to meet the winemakers, enjoy hors d’oeuvres, and listen to the sounds of Sandro Dominelli performing smooth jazz with members of your ESO.
Tickets: $90/person
