Library wine tasting event this weekend

The Plainfield Public Library's Children's Room renovations will be the beneficiary of Saturday's 9th Annual 'Wine Discovery' event being hosted at a gracious Georgian mansion in the Van Wyck Brooks Historic District.

Supporters of the Library have made this annual event sponsored by the Friends of the Library organization one of Plainfield's 'must do' activities.

Fifteen wines will be available for sampling (and purchase) by attendees, accompanied by a sumptuous buffet.

Music will be provided by keyboardist Nat Adderley Jr. (who wrote and arranged Luther Vandross' his 'Stop to Love') and Joe Bonini, popular Plainfield musician.

A perpetual favorite of attendees is the silent auction, which brings together luxury items and services from area businesses to help benefit the cause.

With the renovations of the Children's Room (the first since the Library's construction) that will turn it into a modern and compelling destination for children and families nearly completed, funds raised at this event will help provide finishing touches for the room which is scheduled to open early this summer.

Hosts for this year are Councilor Adrian Mapp and his wife Amelia, who will open their gracious Georgian Colonial in the Van Wyck Brooks Historic District for the event.

Buy your tickets or make your reservations now for an event you won't want to miss!

7:16 AM -- That's Ripple with a capital R I'll have you know.

And I could once have been considered a connoisseur of Ripple, Night Train, Apple Annie, and probably several my misspent youth.

A great turnout, lots of eats, good wines (couldn't find the Ripple table), and fun prizes -- of which I won one.

Congrats and thanks to Belinda Scott Smiley and crew!!
