It's pretty much the ideal girls' night out: wine, music, trés chic spring clothes…and more wine. If this sounds like the kind of fashionable fun that's right up your aisle, then Cellar 55 has got your number. The tasting room is hosting "Bloom Where You Are Planted," a spring fashion show with happy hour pricing. You'll get a first-hand look at wearable springtime ensembles from Grape-Ful Women and Chic Boutique while Wade Hendrix performs a soulful mix of blues and rock. Enjoy delicious local wine, the company of good friends, and the knowledge that you're supporting local women-owned businesses. If you RSVP in advance with your name and phone number, you'll get a free raffle ticke—send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. There's no cost to attend, but of course wine and nibbles will be available to purchase.
This hidden gem of a tasting room is right in downtown Vancouver, and offers lots of Northwest wines from places like Five Star Cellars, Market Vineyards, Gordon Estate, Purple Star, and Native Sun. There's almost always something going on in the evenings at Cellar 55—art classes (with wine), live music (with wine), and other fun grown-up activities (yup, with wine).
