Wine and fish make a great pair at LI Aquarium

Fisn+Sips-2013

Wine tasting is even more enchanting when doing it surrounded by exotic fish.

On Friday, November 15 from 7-10:30 p.m., the Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center in Riverhead hosts its 6th annual Fish & Sips event.

Guests will taste wines from more than 20 local vineyards, sample hors d’oeuvres, enjoy live music and have a chance to win raffle giveaways of wine escapes to Long Island wine country.

Reservations are required and tickets cost $39.95 plus tax per person. Designated drivers enter for free with groups of five or more.

For those who don’t want to drive home, the Hyatt Place East End Resort & Marina is offering a “grape escape” package that includes overnight accommodations and two tickets to the Fish & Sips event for $219 plus tax.

To reserve tickets for Fish & Sips, call 631-208-9200, ext. 426 or visit the aquarium’s website.
