Wine connoisseurs, self-proclaimed wine connoisseurs, and wanna-be wine connoisseurs will soon be converging upon downtown Longview for a good cause.

Grab that wine glass because you'll need it Saturday, June 11th as wineries from around East Texas and the state will be setting up shop along Tyler Street in downtown Longview for the second Wine Swirl event. The event will be bigger than the 2019 event and it's not just Tyler Street that's involved, vendors and wineries will also take over Green Street and High Street too!

Wine Swirl will bring wine tasting, live music, food trucks, and art vendors together in downtown Longview. Nickloas Mayfield, Main Street coordinator for Downtown Longview said,

We had to bring it back. The community seemed to love the event and the funds from this event allowed us to keep offering grants to our local downtown businesses."

The first event was held in 2019 and was put on a two-year hold due to the pandemic but is now back for 2022. Portions of the proceeds have gone to help make improvements to Heritage Plaza downtown including the construction of a performance stage, electrical infrastructure, and a gigantic Christmas tree for the holidays.

Get that wine glass and your friends together, and stroll through downtown Longview for a fun evening of wine tasting and live music featuring Wheel House at Pelaia Plaza and Kaitlin McCullin on Center Street beside Silver Grizzly Espresso. Tickets are now available for the event and if you jump on this site and use the code 'enjoytheview', you can get 25% off your general admission ticket.

I've yet to visit Turkey Leg Hut, but it's definitely gotta following. I'm not sure that I'm in a space where I'd be willing to fork over $100 for turkey legs before even sitting down, but obliviously there are people who are fine with it. I doubt any establishment would keep doing something like this if they were losing business over it.
