Do you have a sweet-tooth? Would you love to taste local wines? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions then come on down to Brunswick Main Street this Saturday, September 22nd from 1:00pm-6:00pm and enjoy the 2nd Annual Wine and Chocolate Walk just minutes from Brunswick Crossing.
The walk will be spotlighting 13 of the area’s local vibrant wines from 6 Maryland and Virginia vineyards. The 2012 wine list features wines from Black Ankle Vineyards, Fabbioli Cellars, Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyards, Knob Hall Winery, North Gate Vineyards and Elk Run Vineyards. And for those of you looking to satisfy your sweet-tooth, the delicious chocolatiers include chocolates from the Perfect Truffle, Salazon Chocolate Company, Taza Chocolates, Chocolove, MC2 Confections, and chocolate bars from MOM’s Organic Market. Also, at the Wine Walk, enjoy Apple Cider from Distillery Lane Ciderworks and Lemoncello from Bloomery Plantation Distillery.
Not a fan of Wine and Chocolates? No worries. This year’s walk will once again feature local Frederick County breweries and include selections from the craft beer world that demonstrate the quality and diversity of flavors the craft beer industry has to offer. Brian Roberts, master brewer at Mad Science Brewing Company serves up the best BBQ in Frederick County! Brian’s smoked meats made their Brunswick debut to rave reviews at the 2011 Wine & Chocolate Walk. Enjoy free samples of chicken, pork and beef along with the award-winning suds from some great craft breweries.
And for more fun, the Brunswick Railroad Museum is hosting their second annual vintage fashion show as part of Main Street Brunswick’s Wine and Chocolate Walk on Saturday, September 22. The fashion show will be held at 2 pm and 5 pm in the former Kaplon’s Department Store at 102 W. Potomac St. in downtown Brunswick as part of Journey Stories, a traveling Smithsonian exhibit. The show will feature the Dapper DJ spinning the victrola’s and clothing from Venus on the Half Shell.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit Journey Stories, come on down. The exhibit is here until October 12, 2012. Journey Stories examines the intersection between modes of travel and Americans’ desire to feel free to move. The story is diverse and focused on immigration, migration, innovation, and freedom. It is accounts of immigrants coming in search of promise in a new country; stories of individuals and families relocating in search of fortune, their own homestead, or employment; the harrowing journeys of Africans and Native Americans forced to move; and, of course, fun and frolic on the open road.
