The Fayette Area Community Theatre (FACT) Wine and Spirits Walk is coming up this Saturday from 4-7 P.M. starting at the courthouse square, and I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited. It’s a chance to check out local businesses and taste delicious wines and spirits along the way. For those of you who don’t know, I planned the wine walk last year, and it takes a lot of planning, a lot of volunteers, and a lot of cooperation from local businesses to get an event like this together. This year a committee was nice enough to take over for me so I could regain some of my sanity (it was never all there in the first place), so I’m super excited about this year’s event because I get to enjoy it without those terrible dreams at the last second about having a car wreck with 500 engraved glasses in the car, or the one where no wineries show up but 10,000 people do, or the one about sleeping through the entire event.
No, someone else is having those dreams, literally, someone else on the FACT committee is having those dreams, but I get to relax a bit and enjoy what’s going on around the square. One business that is involved in the wine walk is Miknan’s Main Street Pub, and they are most certainly going all out, one reason why I’m looking forward to this event. Miknan’s will be hosting Arcadian Moon Winery, and they will be serving appetizers and snacks at the wine tasting bar to make sure the crowds keep coming. If you feel like hanging out longer, they also have a pasta bar beginning at 5 P.M. for $15 per person, which includes Grilled Chicken Alfredo, Seafood Stuffed Ravioli in Sherry Cream Sauce, Stuffed Manicotti with Homemade Marinara, and Pesto with Pine Nuts over Bowtie Pasta. You can enjoy all four pastas along with freshly baked breadsticks and salad! If you don’t have enough room for all that pasta, check out the regular menu, which has some awesome new and fantastic classic menu items.
If you’d like to order your tickets for the wine and spirits walk ahead of time, go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fact-wine-and-spirits-walk-tickets-37023167290?aff=efbeventtix.
Tickets include an engraved wine glass and samples from ten wineries or distilleries. This is a fundraiser for FACT, and it helps support upcoming productions throughout the year and to get closer to their future goal of purchasing their own performance space. The tickets are $15 in advance or $20 that day.
Enjoy the wine walk and enjoy the pasta bar at Miknan’s. The wine walk begins on the courthouse square, and Miknan’s is located right across the street at 107 N. Main Street. It’ll be a great evening of friends, family, music, and more, so eat, drink, and be merry!
