Stay warm with evening of shopping, wine in Tahlequah


— TAHLEQUAH — Wines of Winter returns to from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday in downtown Tahlequah. The event, sponsored by Tahlequah Main Street Association, is in its second year.

“Last year’s inaugural Wines of Winter proved to be so popular with participants and with merchants it will become an annual event,” Drew Haley, program manager of Tahlequah Main Street Association, said in a media release.

Participating Tahlequah Main Street Association Business Partners will offer specials on selected merchandise, sales, hors d’oeuvre and wine tastings. There will also be a grand prize giveaway.

Tickets are $15 at the TMSA office in the Tahlequah Area Chamber of Commerce Building at 123 E. Delaware St. A limited edition Wines of Winter glass is available with advance ticket purchase. Tickets may be purchased at participating TMSA businesses and will be available the night of the event.  

All event-goers — even those who have purchased advance tickets and already have their wine glasses — will check in on Thursday at the TMSA office to receive an armband that denotes they are participants and a list of wines at specific stores.

This list will include descriptions of the wines so participants can keep track of their favorites, as well as a map of Main Street business partners and their specials for the night. People can check in throughout the day on Feb. 7 at the TMSA office as well as that evening.
