Winter Sip & Stroll Got Snowed-in, So Sip this Spring
Oh, winter, the plans you whited out, the events you avalanched. You caused life in the harbor to go into hibernation in February, but now snow-cancelled events are springing back onto the calendar.
First up is the Waterfront Alliance’s rescheduled Winter Sip & Stroll, followed by a reset of The Club @ the Boatyard’s Member Event — all on the same day for a fun afternoon and evening on the harbor.
The Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance is pleased to announce that its 4th annual Winter Sip & Stroll is now set for Saturday, April 6. After sipping wine, stay downtown for live 70’s and 80’s acoustic rock music and dancing at The Club with The Silvertips, here at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.
Saturday April 6: Sip & Stroll, 12-4 p.m.
Club Member Event with The Silvertips, 5-8 p.m.
Tickets for Sip & Stroll, sponsored by Anthony’s at Gig Harbor, are on sale now at bit.ly/wintersipandstroll2019.
This popular tasting event takes patrons on a tour along Gig Harbor’s beautiful waterfront sampling Northwest wines, brews and tasty small bites at businesses serving as “Stroll Stops.”
