Get ready. This week is one of the busiest wino weeks of the year in Spokane. If you’re a wine lover (if you’re not, why are you here), weeks like this make your palate salivate as you prepare to experience 100’s of wines from across the state. In the word, of “the greatest band in the world” this will be some “Crazy, Crazy, Crazy Crazy Nights.” This week’s events allow you to support fantastic charities, bid on auction items, listen to live music, experience local cuisine, enjoy art through downtown or even drink from the comfort of your home in your PJ’s. The ambitious and efficient wino could experience ALL the events for a mere $325.
