The Oakdale Leader - - FRONT PAGE -

The Oak­dale Cham­ber of Com­merce will host a sip and shop event in Down­town Oak­dale on Thurs­day, Oct. 12 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. A se­lec­tion of wine or brews at each of the nine par­tic­i­pat­ing mer­chants will be served.

Of­fer­ing wine tast­ing through area shops the Cham­ber’s aim is to im­prove the lo­cal econ­omy by pro­mot­ing Down­town as an en­ter­tain­ment district; thus, in­creas­ing pa­tron’s aware­ness and build­ing fu­ture clients for the par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses. Cham­ber CEO Mary Guardi­ola said of­fi­cials want to pro­mote an ‘Eat, Drink and Be Lo­cal’ men­tal­ity and events like Pour in Stores and Taste of Oak­dale help show­case the very best of the com­mu­nity.

The event starts off in The Reata’s gar­den on East E Street, where pa­trons will check in; re­ceive a com­mem­o­ra­tive wine glass and a map of pour­ing lo­ca­tions. The Reata will of­fer the first taste of wines and in­vites guests to tour their fa­cil­ity.

A to­tal of seven mer­chants will be serv­ing wines and two serv­ing brews and

many other mer­chants will be open to shop dur­ing the evening as well. The se­lec­tions of wines range from lo­cal fa­vorites like Sonora’s Hurst Ranch to Sonoma’s Carmenet Win­ery. With sev­eral se­lec­tions at each pour­ing lo­ca­tion it should be a fun way to sup­port the com­mu­nity and the lo­cal Cham­ber.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing mer­chants in­clude: Alexan­dra’s Home and Gar­den, AS­TRO Thrift & Gift Shop, Bor­dona’s Fur­ni­ture, Femme Bri­coleuse of Oak­dale, Lon­don Fox, Lori’s Frame Shoppe, Past and Present An­tiques and Rus­tic Mar­ket, Oak­dale.

The pour­ing be­gins at 5 p.m. on Oct. 12. Pre-paid tick­ets are $30 or get them at the door for $40. You can reg­is­ter on­line at oak­dalecham­ber.com or pur­chase tick­ets at the Oak­dale Cham­ber, As­tro Thrift & Gift, Oak­dale Leader, Oak Val­ley Com­mu­nity Bank or Steves Chevro­let.

“We strive to sup­port the busi­ness com­mu­nity through ad­vo­cacy, ed­u­ca­tion and net­work­ing,” added Guardi­ola. “Our events add eco­nomic value to the com­mu­nity and en­hance the qual­ity of life.”
