Mason Street Warehouse 2011/Saugatuck - Fennville B&B

June 24th - July 17



  A Story of murder,greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery - all those things we hold near and dear to our hearts. Thus states the opening line of the most successful Broadway revival in history, now coming to Saugatuck.  Chicago, winner of 6 tony awards , is a sexy, smart, ironically funny and perfect satire with a brilliant score and thrilling choreography in the style of Bob Fosse.

Fennville

IMG01991Annual Wine Festival!

IMG01991
Join in the fun at our 20th annual Wine Festival on June 25th from 1-5pm, when we bring you wine tasting in the vineyards, great live music, specialty foods and a super afternoon. Outdoor wine tasting, a barrel aging demonstration, ethnic foods and great music. A fun time for young and old.
There will be tasting locations outside in the vineyards (weather permitting), providing you with an opportunity to visit the most picturesque spots on the farm while you taste a selection of our wines in the vineyard where they originated. The People Hauler (Wagon) will be continuously transporting participants from the winery to the vineyard tasting sites, or you can enjoy a leisurely 10 minute stroll from the winery to the vineyard.
With your $8.00 admission, you will receive a souvenir Fenn Valley logo wineglass for tasting specially selected wines, tasting tickets, and tickets for a glass of wine of your choice.  Tables will be available should you wish to linger over a glass of wine and visit with family and friends. Or bring your own lawn chairs or blanket.
Besides all of the fun, this is your chance to replenish your wine supplies at substantial savings. All of the released wines tasted at this event will be specially priced at 25% OFF the regular price. This special pricing applies to STRAIGHT CASES ONLY (12 of a kind). Purchases of 4 or more cases (mix & match whole cases) will receive a 30% discount, so you may want to pool your orders with your family and friends. Although all cases must be straight cases, not all cases in an order need to be the same wine.
