After six years under a tent, three in an airplane hangar, and 13 at Tropicana Field, Florida's longest-running and most prosperous one-night tasting will be held at the Armed Forces History Museum (AFHM) Saturday, May 26th.
The shift in venue from Tropicana Field to the AFHM and date change to Memorial Day weekend provides a great opportunity to accentuate our fundraising mission to serve injured veterans.
The Museum offers a centrally located 50,000 sq. ft. facility with a phenomenal look at our military from WWI through today.
