Explorer Ponce de León abandoned his quest to discover the mythical land of wine after a tumble into the Fountain of Youth left him eternally underage. Take up his journey with today’s Groupon: for $47, you get a VIP ticket to the Junior League of Sacramento's Wine and Dine event on Friday, August 26, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Raley Field in West Sacramento (a $95 value).
VIP guests at The Junior League of Sacramento's annual Wine and Dine will sample wines and cuisine from dozens of regional restaurants and wineries, including La Provence, Dawson's at the Hyatt, and Barefoot Wine. VIP access grants entry at 6 p.m., an hour before other guests, and important persons roll into free priority parking spots or park directly on the field and hope nobody notices. Musicians woo eardrums with toe-tapping tunes while guests fill their bellies and play wiffle golf on the field in a competition from 6-7:30 p.m. VIPs can take part in a special tasting of reserve wines, featuring a 5,000-year-old bottle of merlot owned by Dionysus himself. Patrons can wind down their evenings by trekking along the concourse walkway for a stunning view of downtown Sacramento, comforted in the knowledge that proceeds from the event benefit the Junior League of Sacramento's nutrition-education programs.
