What You'll Get
For $25, today's side deal gets you admission for one to the Crush Barrel Wine Market, as well as the Cake Moda Cupcake Wars (a $48 value). This one-day indoor event takes place on September 25 from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. in the Fort Mason Center's Herbst Pavilion. Once inside, you'll be privy to unlimited wine tastings, cupcake samples, and Smart Energy cocktail shots, as well as a $10 instant rebate toward your purchase of a bottle or case of wine.
The Crush Barrel Wine Market is a premier wine-tasting and wine-purchasing market that showcases more than 20 vintners, local food purveyors (at an additional cost), and a grape-stomping contest to benefit the Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation. Wine connoisseurs and nectar newbies can gather to sip on California-produced wines and purchase their favorite ones to bring home. Check out a full list of wineries and other pertinent event information here. This time around, Crush Barrel has merged with Cake Moda Cupcake Wars to provide festivalgoers with unlimited cupcake samples from the Bay Area’s top cupcake bakers and worthy amateurs, who will battle each other for miniature dessert dominance. The audience and five judges will review cupcakes in elimination competitions, until one emerges victorious.
