They call it the social event of the year, although letting me attend really devalues the prestige. Be that as it may, it's a huge event and really lots of fun. The University of Montana Grizzly Scholarship Association and Summit Beverage are hosting the annual Western Montana Wine and Beer Festival Friday, October 26 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. at the Adams Center on the UM campus. Fine wine and beer tasting with amazing food samples from some of Missoula's top restaurants and caterers. Montana artists will be on hand displaying and selling art. Lots of silent auction items, too. Tickets are $60 per person. Must be 21 or over to attend. And I know it's still down the road a bit, but they do tend to sell all the tickets, so if you are interested you might want to jump on it soon. Tickets are available at the GSA office in the Adams Center and at Worden's Market in downtown Missoula. And I hope to see you there.
