Listening to jazz and drinking wine have become some of man's top recreational activities, just after contemplating infinity, throwing message-in-a-bottles into the Bermuda Triangle, and napping in the fridge. Let smooth saxophone entertain you with today's Groupon: a ticket to the Art, Wine & All That Jazz Festival. The festival takes place on October 2, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton. Choose one of the following Groupons:
For $50, you get one VIP ticket (a $100 value). A VIP ticket gets you access to an intimate spot inside the VIP Jazz Café, a front-row seat at the performance tent, valet parking, and access to performers. You'll also have a seat at the Chef's Table, where you'll taste Chef Kathleen Linton's culinary creations.
For $27, you get two general-admission tickets (a $55.50 value, including online fees). Each general-admission ticket gets you a wine glass for all-day tasting plus admittance to the performance tent.
The 2nd Annual Art, Wine & All That Jazz Festival promises a day of world-class jazz and the chance to sample an array of palate-delighting wines. This year's line-up includes soulful jazzy vocalist Ericka Ovette, Maryland blues 'n' boogie musician Deanna Bogart, and jazzy axe-shredding group the Dan Leonard Trio. Fermentation fans can smell, taste, and fill squirt-guns with the wares of regional wineries such as Lexington Valley Vineyard, Philip Carter Winery of Virginia, and more. More than 125 artists will be on-hand and eager to issue high-fives, do demonstrations, and chat about their work. Lectures covering art and wine will take place in the performance tent throughout the day.
The Workhouse, a 55-acre place that used to be a correctional facility, has become an art and education nexus superbly suited to hosting music; seeing mind-melting jazz here won't be as forgettable as Pat Boone's birthday party. The performance stage will be hosted by BIG 100.3 FM's Lisa Berigan.
Must be age 21 or older to attend.
