A Thanksgiving Release at the Rusty Grape

Rusty Grape to Host Wine Release Weekend.

Ah, Thanksgiving. Big Meals. Lots of Shopping. And Wine. Yes, wine. You might not have known it, but this weekend is traditionally one of the largest weekends in the wine industry each year. And local vineyard the Rusty Grape invites guests to celebrate this wine release weekend by tasting guest wines from throughout Washington State. Here’s what we heard from the Rusty Grape:

“See what our world-famous vineyards are producing across Washington – without having to spend the gas money. Sip a special barrel sample of our Cabernet Sauvignon and -of course- try our newest bottle releases – including a bold blend of Sangiovese and Syrah and a Black Raspberry Port. Numerous requests have been made over the last several years for us to release a Port – and we are excited to present our very first in just a few short weeks. This weekend is also the kick-off to our North Clark County Community Food Bank winter food drive. To encourage participation we invite guests to bring two or more cans of food in return for special coupons or a discount on tasting fees. After clearing away our special, pre-reserved Sunday Brunch Nov. 25 (11-2 p.m.) we will host a Wine Club soiree including a tapas bar and acoustic Spanish guitar. Tapas will also be for sale to the general public, with flavors that pair well with our wine selection. Our kitchen will serve special dessert and other mouthwatering parings throughout the weekend and live music is schedule Fri.-Sat. 7-9 p.m. So step out of the kitchen, save your leftovers for week ahead and bring your family, friends and neighbors after your traditional feast and leave the cooking –and dishes- to us! Tasting Room Hours: Closed Thursday – otherwise we will host regular tasting room hours: Nov. 23rd-25th Fri.-Sat., noon-10 p.m., Sunday noon- 6 p.m.”

There you go. Your weekend, like your wine glass, is now filled. 

Turkey Trot Along Salmon Creek Trail

Thanksgiving Morning Fun Run.

Now here is a way to work up your appetite for Thanksgiving Dinner!  The Turkey Trot, a family friendly fun run Thanksgiving morning, November 25, 2010, starting at 9 am.

The  Turkey Trot is a family-friendly 5K Run/Walk or 10K Run along the beautiful Salmon Creek Trail, starting and ending at Klineline Pond in Vancouver, WA.  Participants can trot at their own pace (and distance) and even bring along their dogs!  For those daring enough to take the plunge, there will be a Polar Bear Swim at Klineline Pond after the race.  There is even going to be a pinata for the kids!

While there is no registration fee for the Turkey Trot, all participants are encouraged to donate to the Principal’s Checkbook — a local program that helps disadvantaged kids in our schools. ” Just show up on race day. Put on your shoes and get out there and do the 5K or 10K. We’ll treat you with respect, report your time, count you as a winner. But if you can give, do give. And if you are able to give the minimum of $15, we’ll even set you up with a race T-shirt plus whatever else we can obtain from local sponsors. But don’t stop at $15. Give more. You are directly helping kids in our schools. The money (all of it) goes straight to the school targeting the truly underprivileged. Nobody takes a cut and makes something. Just the kids. So, give $20 or $30 or whatever you can. If you don’t have it, come out and race anyhow. We are glad to just see you on Thanksgiving Morning!” ~ Excerpt from the Clark County Turkey Trot Blog.
