HOW IT WORKS:
There are 21 Sip Stops on the Walk.
Each Sip Stop will have samples available. Alcoholic sample sizes are limited to 1 - 2 ounces.
A Google map marks the participating locations and will be emailed to ticket purchasers and available the evening of the Walk.
To start the Walk, each ticket holder must stop at one of two check-in locations - Downtown Madison Visitors Center, 452 State Street or the Park Hotel, located on the Capitol Square - between 4pm and 6pm on the day of the event to show their ID (proof of legal drinking age) and to pick up their wristband, commemorative glass, shopping bag and list of participating businesses.
No ID = No Wristband; No wristband = No wine.
You may NOT pick up wristbands for other people.
Wristbands will be secured at check in.
Participants pick up their glass and bring their glass along to participating business to sample.
Participants are encouraged to attend The Post post party at the Park Hotel from 8pm - 10pm for cocktails, coffee and prizes!
Must be 21+. Must provide proof of legal age at wristband check in.
No wine/beverages will be served prior to 5 p.m.
All wine glasses must be empty before leaving a Sip Stop location.
No open intoxicants in public spaces!
Business will have a dump bucket and rinse station available.
Please do not ask participating businesses to over pour or give you an extra swig. It's not worth breaking the pouring, over serving or open intoxicant law.
If you appear intoxicated, business owners and servers have the right to refuse serving you.
Bring your ID.
Wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing, you'll be walking outdoors between locations.
