Come one, come all. It’s almost time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) at Your Vine or Mine? in downtown Painesville! If you have never been to The Vine, or if you have been avoiding downtown Painesville simply because it’s “Painesville,” then you are missing a real treat! Your Vine or Mine? is the best-kept secret in the county! Put those preconceived notions aside and take a chance.
Your Vine or Mine? is a lovely little micro-winery. Housed in an old bank building on Main St., you will find the décor and the general atmosphere to be charming. On a normal day, you can settle in at the bar or at a table and enjoy a wonderful glass of wine, a fabulous appetizer, and superb company. Or better still, you can make an appointment to make your own wine (which I have done four times since they opened in September of 2008).
The tasty selections include reds, whites, and a blush…sweet, less sweet, and dry. Appetizers range from tasty hot French bread and oil, to cheese and crackers, yummy Brie, Tuscan dip, and French bread pizzas. You won’t leave hungry.
But back to Cinco de Mayo, or Singo de Mayo, or Singo de Wino (my variation). The Vine will be offering for this auspicious occasion an All-You-Can-Eat Taco Bar for $7.50, $3.00 Sangria, and you can take your shot at Karaoke from 4 to 10 p.m (hosted by Alex Anthony of WKKY…who, with his lovely wife Penny, owns and operates The Vine). A good time will be had by all the attendees!
The Cinco de Mayo celebration is only one of a myriad of fabulous events hosted at The Vine throughout the year. Come on out! You won’t regret it!
