Wine & Dine in Downtown Newark

If you missed Newark’s Restaurant Week in January, fear not, another downtown Newark Dining extravaganza is on the horizon for March. Wine and Dine Downtown Newark is a town-wide event that features delicious dishes prepared by Newark’s chefs to complement a variety of wines from around the globe. The event will begin at noon on Saturday, March 25, and continue until 5 p.m.

A total of 17 downtown Newark restaurants are participating. Wine pairings will offer a $2 per two-ounce taste and some establishments will offer wine flights at varying prices.

The first 1,500 attendees will receive a commemorative wine-tasting glass and wine pouch. And don’t worry about tickets; just grab a glass at any participating Wine & Dine establishment and pay as you go.

Prior to the event, consider lacing up your running shoes to participate in the inaugural Five and Wine 5-Mile Run/Walk.

It’s not every day you get to run down East Main Street, after all. The run starts at the corner of Main and Academy Streets, and finishes on Academy Street near the AETNA Fire Station.
