Partners for Housing’s second annual Sips 4 Shelter takes place 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Circle Inn in North Mankato. The wine and beer tasting event started in 2019 as a traveling tour to Minnesota wineries.
This year, the purveyors will be coming to North Mankato to offer their samples. In addition to the wineries, there will also be breweries, a distillery and a tonics vendor. To promote a safe environment for all, the event will be held outdoors while featuring heaters and blankets to keep attendees comfortable.
The Sips tickets include: beverage tasting from MN-based brewers and vintners; food by The Pelican food truck; live music by The Jeremy Poland Band; all-you-care-to-eat s’mores; take-home item, made by Mankato Craft Co.; silent auction; wine wall; games.
After the event, attendees can stay for the Dazy Head Mazy reunion concert. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the band will play at 7 p.m. Admission is reduced for Sips attendees. All proceeds from Sips 4 Shelter and the post-event concert will benefit clients of Partners for Housing’s homeless shelters in Mankato and St. Peter.
