Cheers ... to Wheeling Events
September 9, 2008 - Phyllis Sigal
It was great to see the nice crowd out for Saturday's Wine and Jazz Festival. For the first one, there was a great turnout.
The wines we tasted were good, although many W.Va. wines are a bit too sweet for my taste. However, the five wineries did offer quite a variety, which was nice. The music was enjoyable, as was the setting. The cozy venue at the north end of Heritage Port was a perfect place to sip wine and listen to the music on a Saturday afternoon.
Another wonderful event each year is the Oglebay Institute Board Benefit, this year held Sept. 5 at the Mansion at Oglebay. We've come to expect a perfect night, weather wise, and we've not been disappointed yet since the event moved to the front lawn there. Institute supporters look forward to the evening each year, to get together for a few hours ... to compare summers and to talk about what's coming up on everyone's fall agenda.
It certainly was a busy weekend last weekend for Oglebay Institute, with the opening of the exhibit, "The Dancer Within," the board benefit, the plein air event Saturday and Sunday, and a workshop with master jazz dancer Luigi on Sunday. Talk about ambitious!
And, if wine is your cup of tea, there's a wine tasting Friday at the Stifel Fine Arts Center and, on Saturday, Harmony House's fourth annual "Toast of the Vineyard" will be held at the Sandscrest Conference and Retreat Center.
