Upcoming May Events Not To Be Missed
It’s getting to that time of the year where I turn my attention to hosting wine, beer and spirit events. I am fortunate to have access to many different venues to host a variety of events. You may be a wine drinker, beer drinker or spirits drinker; no matter what, I will have something for you. Here is a quick look at what CRG has coming around the corner. Mark your calendars and get ready to have some fun!
Cinco de Mayo! Take your pick, head close to the border and have a party on the ocean next to the last pier in the western United States at Sea 180. Or stay urban, and head for another amazing view at Coasterra’s floating event center for tequila tasting and a margarita making contest.
