Listening to jazz and drinking wine have become some of man's top recreational activities, just after contemplating infinity and napping in the fridge. Let smooth saxophones entertain you with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one ticket to the "Crazy Eights!" party at Carousel Winery in Bedford on Saturday, August 6 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m (a $20.20 value including tax).
For eight years, the husband-and-wife team at Carousel Winery has cultivated the vines of their family farm into a collection of award-winning wines. On Saturday, August 6, Marion and Sue Wilson will throw a party at Carousel's six-acre winery to celebrate its continued success as attendees sample flights of reds and whites, try out descriptors such as "oaky" and "four," bite on BBQ ribs and chicken, and show off complimentary Carousel glasses. Throughout the afternoon, enjoy a variety of events and prizes devoted to the number eight, such as a Crazy Eights card tournament with an $88.88 gift certificate prize and eight door-prize drawings for $8.88 gift certificates. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., the sultry voice of Charlene Blay leads her four-piece jazz ensemble, The 2nd Editions through 5/8 time signatures and various deconstructions of the Scooby Doo theme song.
In addition to the free tastings, food, and prizes, party attendees will receive discounts on three of Carousel Winery's most popular wines—the Red Tiger Red, White Dove White, and Cayuga White ($8.88 each). Because this event takes place on the winery's lawn, Carousel recommends attendees bring chairs or blankets for a place to sit.
