It’s a great weekend to head east: the wineries are open and it won’t be freezing! And visitors will have the opportunity to attend the kickoff party for Live on the Vine, the 2014 version of Winterfest, a wine and music party to get us through February.

In addition to the wineries and musicians, bed-and-breakfasts and restaurants team up to cater to tourists and locals alike. This year the happenings start on February 8 and run through March 16. However, you can start Winterfest 2014 early with the kickoff party on January 17 at the Suffolk Theater. There will be music and dancing and wine and food. Doors open at 6 p.m. and food service starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Sounds like a good idea to us. What else is going on?
