Grapes and Ale – Count Me In

You know what this title means right? An event that features wine and beer – only two of my favorite things! (Fun fact: for my work bio, I needed to mention what gets me through or makes life easier….don’t think that wine wasn’t listed.)


Our Lady of the Wayside has a great event planned this summer, at a favorite location – Progressive Field (or as I still call it, “The Jake”). Grapes & Ale is the hottest BBQ of the year, featuring wine and beer tastings, food and great live music! I saw the SkinnyGirl logo on their website and immediately was excited – a SkinnyGirl margarita and I always get along, especially in the summer. I love everything about a summer cookout – the food, the drinks, the conversations.

Established nearly 50 years ago, Our Lady of the Wayside supports children and adults with developmental disabilities through a family of services which include:

  • Supporting 500 children and adults with developmental disabilities
  • Managing nearly 60 homes in 30 communities throughout Cuyahoga and Lorain counties
  • Operating a transportation fleet of 80 vehicles
  • Becoming a major regional employer with 500 staff
  • Pioneering The Pathways Program, an innovative Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities


So if you are looking for a kick-off to a fun weekend (that may include Bruno Mars the next day like mine does), purchase your tickets today and follow along with the tweets at #GrapesandAle! You won’t want to miss this fun Friday night at the Jake for Our Lady of the Wayside!

Disclosure: Our Lady of the Wayside invited me to be their guest “tweeter” at this year’s event. In exchange, I received two tickets to attend and tweet away.
