Another week has come and nearly gone. We’ve got a few fun events on the docket for the next several days, so read on to find out what we suggest you look into if you’ll be in town.

Friday, August 6th

  • From 5pm – 8pm in downtown Napa, Back Room Wines will host a summer tomatoes and wine pairing event. For a $10 per person tasting fee (no reservation required) you’ll be able to enjoy sweet and juicy heirloom tomatoes with four wines to match. Call 877-322-2576 for more information
  • It’s the first Friday of the month, so that means Cheers! St. Helena will take place Friday evening in downtown St. Helena. Full details on the event can be found here, but suffice it to say it includes all the food, wine, shopping and fun you could ever want in a single evening. This month’s event will include a ‘social media lounge’ that will be located on the East side of Adams street and even has its own Twitter hashtag: #CheersNV. Call 707-967-0900 for details

Saturday, August 7th

  • At 7pm the Napa Valley Opera House will play host to the 2nd Annual Battle of the Bands event presented by Wandering Rose. For $12 per person at the door ($10 per person in advance), you’ll get to hear (and judge) bands from around the Napa Valley. Call 707-226-7372 for more information

Happy weekend!
