    Jasper Winery Concert Series

    Anyone go to these on Thursday nights? I'm going with a small group tonight and wanted to know people's thoughts? Plenty of space? Need to bring wine glasses?

    Their wine is pretty inexpensive, so I'm not too worried about that. Any favorites?

    Usually they have glasses and buckets with ice at these things. You might want to bring some snicky snacks like cheese and crackers, smoked salmon, grapes, etc. and a small table.

    Never been there, but I remember my parents saying something about a really good band doing a great cover of "hand jive" one time there.

    Re: Jasper Winery Concert Series

    I am going tonight as well. I've seen the dueling piano guys play on pianopalooza before and it was a lot of fun. I have no reason to believe it won't be just as good, if not better if the weather stays nice.

    This is my first time going, but I know they have beer for sale as well, with brats and burgers available. I think we are just going to take some blankets.

    Last night was pretty crazy. They said it was the largest crowd they have ever had. The wines are great and not too pricey. Although, you could also bring a picnic basket and cooler and not spend a dime and just enjoy the entertainment.

    Overall, fun experience.
