Mondays just got a little more exciting. ACL Live at The Moody Theater released the new line-up for this summer’s “The Wine Down,” a music series presented by Thorny Rose Wines. Other collaborators include Hail a Cab and the Austin Music Foundation, as well as returning supporter 2nd Street District. Not only will there be wine, but each week a different restaurant from the district and other downtown hot spots will be on-site providing food samples while people enjoy happy hour priced wine glasses. Austin-based radio station KGSR will emcee the entertainment for each night while local retailers feature their own pop-up shops.
The date to save will be Monday, June 16, as the 2014 series kicks off that evening. The Wine Down will run every other week through August 25. The series is free and open to the public. Each event will take place from 5-7 p.m. at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. As if all of that wasn’t enough, each event will host merchandise giveaways from businesses around the 2nd Street District. Visit ACL Live’s website for more information.
