The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's Groupon: for $34, you get one general-admission ticket to see George Jones (a $49.50 value) and attend a wine tasting (a $17 value) at the Cecil County Food and Wine Festival at Marina Park in Port Deposit on October 15 at 10 a.m. (a $69.36 total value, including tax and ticketing fees). Seating is first come, first served and guests must bring their own lawn chairs. Parking is not included with today's deal, but can be purchased for an additional $3. Concert-goers who pay the fee can park at 1 Bill Amos Way in Port Deposit; a shuttle service will provide transportation from the parking lot to Marina Park.
The Cecil County Food and Wine Festival, an all-day outdoor event, sates the senses of attendees with live entertainment and wine tastings from local grape whisperers. Charismatic opening act Dean Crawford and the Dunn's River Band entrances the crowd at 2 p.m. with original country compositions and complimentary SkyMall magazines. Headliner George Jones—a country legend known for co-penning a slew of hits such as "Tender Years" and "He Stopped Loving Her Today"—takes the stage at 4 p.m. to churn out songs from his extensive catalog. Amid the twang-tinged euphony, two featured Cecil County wineries, Dove Valley and Terrapin Station, offer up samples of their grape libations alongside other Maryland vineyards. Like a graduation party for one of the California raisins, this deal gifts all guests with a commemorative 9.9-ounce wine glass for indulging in aperitifs.
