The 6th annual Vintage Crystal wine festival in Crystal City is less than a month away.

Vintage Crystal: A Taste of Wine and Jazz is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 16, from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. The event will be held in the parking lot outside 220 20th Street S.

The $20 cost of admission will get you a tasting glass, sips of tequila and various types of Spanish and South American wine, and tapas dishes from local restaurants. There’s also a $10 food-only option.

In addition to the food and drink, the event also features salsa dancing lessons, Latin jazz, and wine tasting classes.

Crystal City is also hosting weekly “Wine in the Water Park” events, at the public “water” park at 1750 Crystal Drive. The events are held on Fridays, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., through Sept. 28.

      Last year they were sold at the entrance.

      Also please, no one come and don’t tell anyone. This is too good of an event to be hurt by waiting in long lines…

    Wine festival in Crystal Meth City? Let me guess: It’s all going to be served in boxes, right?

    Pregame will be held in the VIP tent sponsored by the local alumni association of the David Hasselhoff School of Drinking which is a part of the renowned Clown Enema University. You must provide proof you are a bro or a brah and bring your own supply of powdered garlic.
