A warm late summer evening was the perfect setting for the Evanston Charity Wine Walk on Sept 14 from 5 to 9 p.m.  New shops in the area joined neighborhood favorites to offer tastings of domestic and international wine, an array of appetizers, and a chance to take advantage of special “Wine Walk” discounts. 

About 40 local businesses participated in the lively neighborhood event, hosted together by the Main-Dempster Mile and Vinic Wine.  Proceeds were split between the Evanston Community Foundation and Evanston Work Ethic Program.  Tickets were $30 per person in advance, $35 the evening of the event, and included wine samplings and complimentary pedi-cabs between check-in points.
