Every attempt is made to provide accurate information, however,
we encourage you to double check the details of these events!

Grapes and Grains

Enjoy fine food and drink, along with fine music at the "Grapes and Grains - A Celebration of Food and Spirits" event Sept. 27 at the Catawba Island Club.

One of my favorite local bands, Miss Kitty and the Litter, will provide the music (it's possible that one of the reasons I like the band so much is that I can sing along to most of their songs and tell myself that I sound almost as good as Jaclyn, the lead singer. I don't).

Chef Susan of the Catawba Island Club will offer several food selections, which are carefully paired with drinks from the Bail House Brewery, Catawba Island Brewing, Firelands Winery, Twin Oast Brewery, and WineFlight.

The event is sponsored by the Magruder Hospital Foundation. Proceeds will go to the Employee Giving Campaign Paved Walking Trail Project.

Autumn Is Time For Wine Festivals!

Take a trip to the Put-in-Bay Winery at the Doller Estate on Oct. 6 to enjoy not only foreign and domestic wines, but also the local island wines. Enjoy good food, tours, and a silent auction that benefits the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society. Admission is $10, and includes a souvenir wine glass. Sample tickets are $1, and most samples are in the $2 to $5 range

The Ohio Wine Producers Association will bring a one-day wine-tasting event to the Liberty Aviation Museum on Saturday, Oct. 27. Afternoon and evening sessions are available, with a limited number of VIP tickets sold for each session. Enjoy more than four dozen types of wine, great food including Adams Reserve Cheddar Cheese, and access to the winemakers. Make reservations early - ticket prices increase after Oct. 12, and a limited number of VIP tickets will be sold. Lake Erie Shores and Islands and the Ohio Grape Industries Committee are also sponsoring the event.

Halloween Comes Early In Sandusky

Witches will gather in downtown Sandusky for fun, contests, door prizes, and a parade!

The Witches’ Walk is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 24, with check-in at the Sandusky State Theatre for maps and wristbands. Last year more than 300 witches gathered for the event, and they were welcomed by downtown businesses.

The event is sponsored by Donna Bretz, Michelle Herold, and Divine Awakenings. Tickets are $13 in advance or $18 at the door, and proceeds will go to Back to the Wild.

I want to see what all the fashionable witches are wearing this year. The event includes several contests, so I’m sure the hats, brooms, and costumes will be magical!
