Austin’s Favorite Happy Hour Moves to Tuesdays in 2015
THE WINE DOWN is back! This free summer concert series is presented by MARK WEST WINES and returning supporter 2ND Street District, benefiting the Austin Music Foundation. Moving to Tuesday nights, this year’s The Wine Down series will remain indoors on the air-conditioned concert floor to cool down the hot summer evenings. The popular music series has become an anchor to driving people downtown to experience lively nights of shopping, eating, and strolling down the 2ND Street corridor.
The Wine Down is FREE, open to the public, and takes place from 5-7 PM at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. Each evening’s entertainment will once again be emceed by KGSR, and each event will host giveaways for merchandise from businesses around the 2ND Street District. The 2015 series kicks off with a bang Tuesday, June 16th, and runs every other week through August 25th.
The August 25th finale with QUIET COMPANY, with special guest BEE CAVES, is hosted by the Austin Music Foundation. An optional $5 donation at the door will go directly to AMF.
“The Wine Down series is the perfect event," said Julie Sutton, Retail Marketing Manager of 2ND Street District. “Guests get to sample the best of the 2ND Street District's stores and restaurants all while enjoying live music from ACL Live. This is exactly what makes Austin the place to be.”
Special thanks to our partners 2ND Street District, KGSR Austin, Visit Austin, Texas, and Elite 25 Ausin.
