Downtown Danville Wine & Chocolate Stroll

Original post made by Discover Danville Association, Danville, on May 2, 2012

Enjoy a fun-filled evening of wine tasting, decadent chocolates and shopping during Danville's Spring Wine & Chocolate Stroll on Thursday, May 10th from 6pm-9pm. Select businesses will stay open late to host some of our area's finest wines accompanied by small bites from local restaurants and gourmet chocolate samples, compliments of Danville Chocolates.

Stroll throughout downtown Danville and enjoy live music and entertainment throughout the evening. Singer/songwriter and local artist, Deborah Kuhl, will be performing at the corner of Hartz & Prospect and Steve Fox of Bay Area Broadcast DJ's will play hits to bring music to your ears at Danville Chocolates.

Be sure to stop in at your favorite stores to see their latest spring offerings.

Tickets are $25 each and can be redeemed for wine glasses at the corner of Hartz & Prospect Avenues from 5:30-7:00pm the night of the event. Any remaining wine glasses will be available for sale from 5:30-7:30pm.

This event has sold out in past years, so be sure to reserve your glass early!

Oh great, Danville is now an alcohol pusher encouraging people to drink and drive. Maybe one of the terms of participation is an agreement to a breathalyzer test upon leaving the cordoned off street premises. At the least that would be a great opportunity for alcohol education and awareness.

I suggest we stop the discrimination against other alcohols versus "wine." What makes "wine" tasting OK on which to base a street event?
How about "tasting" some fine rums, brandies, tequilas and scotches? Or some high-end boutique beers?

To make it even more fun, along with wine tasting, we could have shot slamming and beer chugging contests. Oops, but then that would be the equivalent of Hot Summer Nights...

I like the shot slamming and beer chugging idea. Good suggestions.

Will we be allowed to have our glasses of wine on the sidewalks or do we have to be inside the alcohol dispensary or within its outdoor defined premises? The Police police the 4th of July Parade and ticket or harass anyone found with alcohol on the streets. Can't wait to see if they are part of the graft and turn a "dollar-purchased" eye.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
