Saginaw Vineyard wine tasting, picnic and live music

Friday nights in the summer, Saginaw Vineyard in Cottage Grove has free live music. Being a vineyard, they also have wine.

If you would like to drink alcohol please make it their wine which they have samples of, and glasses and bottles for purchase. We are welcome to bring our own food to eat in the outdoor area you can see pictured with the people sitting. Please bring something to share and whatever utensils you will need to eat with. If you really want to be a rock star, please indicate what you will bring in your rsvp or event comments so others can prepare their contributions with that knowledge and avoid having six people all bring smoked oysters.

Bluegrass music will be provided by the Annie Rhodes Band. Their website has a youtube video of one of their songs and some pictures of their last gig at the vineyard:

Here's a Google map.

It looks like there is a picnic table and perhaps some chairs there, but I don't know how many people will show or if the seats provided will be taken. If you have issues with sitting on the grass, please bring your own portable chairs or blankets.

As per vineyard rules, no dogs allowed. Music is scheduled from 6-9.

Spring is lasting longer than usual this year and there may still be a lot of pollen in the air even in late June. If you have allergy issues, please bring appropriate medication or other preparations so you can enjoy the event. As the evening goes on, it will undoubtedly be getting cooler, so please bring appropriate clothing for the change in temperature.

If anyone has a ride to offer or needs a ride, please indicate in your rsvp or comments. We customarily carpool from Albertsons at 30th and Hillyard in Eugene, but it ultimately everyone's own responsibility to arrange that carpool in order to get themselves there. The drive takes approximately half an hour, so a 5:30 departure would get people there by 6.

Last, and most importantly, this event involves alcohol, which, as some of you may have heard, if consumed, impairs one's ability to operate a motor vehicle. Please drink responsibly.

    I'll bring a hot chicken and some bread so people can eat it off a plate or as a sandwich. I talked to the vineyard. They also have hot (chicken or beef) hoagies and cold snack boxes for $5 each, but they sell out fast. These are catered by Carousel House Bed and Breakfast in Cottage Grove http://www.carousel-house.com/

    I'm going to bring what I think everyone else is going to bring, so I can't be blamed for doing something wrong.

    I'm thinking I'll bring something along the lines of a fruit salad. I'm also willing to give anyone a ride that wants to carpool.

    It's wonderful to be appreciated. This one will probably be the most fun of all.
