There's no fear of getting wine mouth in front of others this year. The annual Urban Wine Walk is going virtual for 2020 in an effort to keep our distances while supporting local bars. Oh, and drinking wine. The free participatory event is happening from 1 to 5 p.m. this Saturday, April 25.
Here's how it will work. Before the 10th annual Urban Wine Walk begins, get a glass or bottle of wine to go from one of the many participating restaurants and bars in downtown Phoenix. That list includes Centrico, GenuWine Arizona Wine Bar, Harumi Sushi, Hidden Track Bottle Shop, Jobot Coffee & Bar, Pigtails Downtown, Pomo Pizzeria, The Duce, The Farish House, The Grand, and Sauvage Bottle Shop at The Churchill.
Each spot will have its own drink specials and some pretty killer takeout food options, too.
Remote attendees may participate in online programming like a virtual architect and mural tours of downtown Phoenix, a visit to GenuWine, an “unWINEd” virtual wine and yoga session with Elevate Yoga, and a sangria guide from Carly’s Bistro.
Keep up with hashtags like #dtphx and #virtualwinewalk. When you’re ready to share photos of you and your … housemates … holding up a glass in solidarity, be sure to tag @downtownphoenix. Some submissions will be rewarded with a prize.
