On the Scene
This year's festivities for Wine Country Bistro's wine festival, Wine and Swine, again spilled out of the restaurant into the parking lot with several hundred people attending. More than 60 wines were poured, multiple food stations featured various forms of tasty swine offerings, and Easy Money provided entertainment. A new feature at this year's festival was Champagne Charlie's Bubble Bar, which was formerly a horse trailer that has been transformed into a mobile champagne bar.
