Weekend wine ideas
The weather promises to be cooler as the weekend approaches but there’s only a slight chance of rain called for this evening – a perfect opportunity to enjoy the First Friday Art Walk going on in downtown Vancouver tonight. Pick up a Hot Sheet at Vancouver’s Downtown Association site for all the goings on. Cellar 55 and East Fork Cellars are hosting live music in addition to being open extended hours.
For Saturday and Sunday, it’s always warm inside the area tasting rooms. Cheers!
