It was held in Liberty Village, which is near our 'hood. Liberty Village used to be an rundown industrial area. In the last ten years or so, it's become a trendy place to be and live as there have been lots of condos built. The old buildings have been renovated into restaurants and shops, which were open.
Advanced tickets $22.50 or $35 at the door. Sampling tickets were $1 for a half glass or two tickets for a full glass.
There was a good-sized crowd but it never seemed overcrowded.
