Wine connoisseurs, wine walkers had an absolute superb night for the 10th annual Downtown Bay City Wine Walk held on Thursday, September 25, 2008.

There was music in the streets from live entertainment, the weather was absolutely perfect, the wine was divine and the food was out of this world.

They said, no one does it better then downtown Bay City and they were right! Fourteen participating establishments gave it their all and put out their best spreads to make the 10th Annual Downtown Bay City Wine Walk a huge success.

Participating establishments were:

  • Atrium, 1100 N. Water Street
  • G's Pizzeria & Deli, 1005 Saginaw Street
  • Gatsby's Steakhouse & Saloon, 203 Center Avenue
  • Jake's Corner Bar, 114 Third Street
  • Kingfish Restaurant & Tiki Lounge, 1019 N. Water Street
  • Mulligan's Pub, 109 Center Avenue
  • Old City Hall, 814 Saginaw Street
  • Prime Event Center, 1201 Washington Avenue
  • Princess Wenonah, departing from Wenonah Park
  • Rattlesnake Rick's Roadhouse, 708 Saginaw Street
  • Riverfront Grille at the Doubletree, One Wenonah Park
  • Stein Haus, 1108 N. Water Street
  • Striker's Sports Bar, 1203 Washington Avenue
  • The Chambers, 816 Saginaw Street

  • Two samplings of wine, plus hors d'oeurves from regions around the world were served at each location. The event started at 4:30pm and ending at 10:00pm which is actually quite the task to make your rounds to each stop. Also serving special treats during the walk were:
    Water Front Market & Deli, 925 N. Water Street
    St. Laurent Brothers, 1101 N. Water Street
