Food, drinks, free stuff, and music.. Need I say more? Corning, you may have outdone yourself this time. Despite the lovely (dreadful) weather we will be experiencing, there’s plenty to be excited about, trust us..
Saturday, May 14:
Heritage Village Craft Beverage Expo – 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
To kick off the Finger Lakes Craft Beer Week, Heritage Village will be hosting their first Craft Beverage Event (but if I have anything to do with it, they’ll be back next year… or next month… or next week). The event will take place outside within the buildings of Heritage Village under tents – which basically means: rain or shine, we drink.
For just $25.00 you can find yourself with a handcrafted pottery tasting cup for all the beer, wine, and cider you’d like while enjoying historic demonstrations, workshops, a home brew contest, and of course, foooooooood.
You can expect to see some of our favorites in attendance this weekend, such as:
- Cider Creek Hard Cider – Canisteo, NY
- Crooked Creek Hops Farm – Addison, NY
- Dippity Do Dahs (Are we taking shots of ice cream? Fine by me.) – Corning, NY
- Four Fights Distilling LLC – Corning, NY
- Iron Flamingo – Corning, NY
- Keuka Brewing Company LLC – Hammondsport, NY
- Massi’s Gardens and Landscaping LLC – Painted Post, NY
- Railhead Brewing Company – Hornell, NY
- Steuben Brewing Company – Hammondsport, NY
- The Brewery of Broken Dreams – Hammondsport, NY
This isn’t an event for the kids, though. We’ll expect to see you there as, uh, orderly, and adult-like as possible. Just bring your ID (a real one).
Sunday, May 15:
My Shawarma Grand Opening Patio Party – 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A family friendly celebration of Middle Eastern food with giveaways, henna art… and ice cream. Is this the second time I’ve gotten way too excited about ice cream? Possibly..
WINK 106 will broadcast the event live from 12:00 – 2:00, but the deliciousness doesn’t stop there. You can spend all afternoon building your own wraps, salads and rice bowls which include My Shwarma’s hand crafted toppings, all while listening to some music! A day full of fun (and ice cream) on Market Street.
