Wine and Dine draws a crowd
Thousands flocked to Main Street on Saturday for the Downtown Newark Partnership’s 12th- annual Wine and Dine Festival.
Rain earlier in the day gave way to sunny skies and warm temperatures, leading many attendees to congregate in outdoor areas of restaurants like Caffe Gelato and Home Grown Cafe.
Fourteen restaurants offered wine samples paired with a special menu of food items.
