Midland Street Was Sizzlin' Hot as Wine Walkers Pounded The Pavement

June 10, 2007
By: Julie McCallum, Entertainment Editor

Thursday night June 7th was sizzlin' hot for the 2nd annual Midland Street Wine Walk 2007 held on Bay City's West side.

And if that was not enough, Hooters also held their annual bikini contest, and also their weekly bike night, which added a bonus to the night of festivities.

Wine connoisseurs enjoyed wine tasting at the 15 participating establishments which served two different wines to sample and complimentary hors d'oeuvre.

The fun and festive night was a great kickoff to the summer for the 2007 events being held on the West Side of Bay City. And you can bet the success of this year's Midland Street Wine Walk, will bring everyone back and more for the 3rd annual wine event next year.
