Having a partner turns bouncing a ball into a tennis match, a monologue into a conversation, and a bear attack into a slightly longer bear attack. Experience the power of pairing with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a festival package for two at the Chapel Creek Winery's Grape Stomp Festival in El Reno (up to a $19.90 value). The Grape Stomp Festival takes place on Saturday, September 10, and Sunday, September 11, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The package includes the following:
- Two $5 food tickets—items range between $2.50 to $5 each.
- Two souvenir wine glasses (a $9.90 value)
Each year, Chapel Creek Winery gives vino virtuosos a chance to sample wines, gobble up grill fare and desserts, and try their feet at smashing fruit during the Grape Stomp Festival. Couples nosh on whimsically named Cowbernet burgers and Haute dogs while trekking across green fields buzzing with live music. A grape and cheese platter performs a spontaneous marriage of flavors, and the Sinful Zin peach dessert electrifies palates more effectively than a battery-powered soufflé.
Appetites sated, duos have the energy to romp around inside vats of squishy grapes. A 98-year-old chapel stands watch over the vineyard, and guided tours venture through its hallowed halls each hour. Stompers collect souvenir wine glasses to commemorate their grape-stained experience without having to hire everyone who was there to become permanent re-enactors.
