Livingston Depot Wine & Beer Tasting
November 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Livingston Depot Foundation’s sixteenth annual Wine and Beer Tasting, to be held Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Livingston Depot Center, now includes an enticing variety of silent auction items available to attendees too.
Final preparations are in process, including the signature decorative trellises and giant grape clusters, and guests will be able to eye over a wide variety of items including overnight stay packages in Yellowstone National Park, certificates for dinners in area restaurants, great gifts from area boutiques, and fine art including a Joe Wayne bronze and a collector’s edition of Barbara Van Cleve’s famous Pure Quill including original prints.
Also on offer are a variety of jewelry, furniture, gift certificates, gift baskets and more.
Many international wines will be available for tasting, alongside beers by a half dozen area craft brewers, from Livingston and Bozeman to White Sulphur Springs.
An alluring range of appetizers will be provided by John and Dani Townes of the Northern Pacific Beanery.
Live music will be provided by the smooth tunes of the Ridgeway Collective, formerly the Swingley Jazz Project, with Matt Ridgeway leading on piano, Cameron Reichert on bass, and Garrett Stannard on the drums. The group’s wide repertoire runs from classic jazz to Latin.
The evening will wrap up with the raffle of a “Gourmet Extravaganza” package of fine food, wines, cheeses, and more, assembled by Deb Endres of the Gourmet Cellar. There will also be a wine pull, where guests can try their luck to win bottles worth anywhere from $15 to $100 and everybody wins!
The event is a benefit to the Livingston Depot Foundation, which depends on community support to sustain its museum, educational programs, and community center activities at the heart of Livingston and Park County in a beautiful historic former Northern Pacific rail station anchoring the downtown historic district. Now in service to the community for over three decades, the Depot remains highly popular with visitors learning of the area’s history, in credit to the members and friends who continue their regular support.
The Foundation’s trustees are particularly grateful to the businesses and individuals who sponsor the event or donate items toward the silent auction.
Tickets are $35 for members and $40 for non-members and are still available through the Gourmet Cellar, Katabatic Brewing, or the Depot at 222-2300.
