The Evanston community is invited to join local merchants for the third annual charity wine walk from 5 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 13, in various locations along Main Street and Chicago Avenue. Each ticket – $30 in advance, and $35, the day of – includes a choice of eight, 2-ounce wine tastings at more than 50 local businesses. Patrons can check in at one of four businesses and receive a wristband and map of wine-tasting locations: Sketchbook Tap Room, 821 Chicago Ave.; The Pot Shop, 1224 Chicago Ave.; The Wine Goddess, 702 Main St.; and Vinic Wine, 1509 Chicago Ave. Wine and raffle ticket proceeds to benefit Mudlark Theater to support programs where children are taken seriously as artists. The proceeds raised at the event will underwrite Mudlark’s signature program and production, Mudpie, a show written by Evanston children and performed by their peers.
