Field Blend is a serial collaborative wine event developed by Howard Street Wine Merchant. The aim of Field Blend is to collaborate with Omaha’s arts, entertainment, and hospitality industries. Partner collaborators will change each time, as will the venue and programming highlighted at the event. Field Blend wants to showcase the many talents and visions that comprise Omaha’s vibrant creative arts communities
The inaugural event, held July 26th at the historic 40th Street Theatre, served as an exceptional template for continuing the event series. That night, a crowd of almost 300 attendees tried wines from a celebrated wine importer; savored moderately priced bottles in an open courtyard; snacked on wood fired pizza and hand made ice cream from notable local chefs, and enjoyed music from one of Omaha’s most exciting indie rock acts.
Field Blend II will take place at the ICC Bowlatorium and Gym on November 24th at 25th and Bancroft, a delightful mid-century throwback space. Our partners are Block 16, JDRF, Schatzi Imports, and Fernson Brewing, with music from DJ Eric Ziegler. Guests have the opportunity to purchase bottles and enjoy them on site, or take them home for holiday celebrations or gifts all while supporting JDRF. A portion of all retail sales will be donated to the local chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Field Blend II will have two components: Upstairs in the old Gym for the main tasting event and Downstairs in the Bowlatorium for the all-night bowling and VIP tasting. General Admission tickets cover upstairs tasting only, while VIP tickets cover the upstairs tasting as well as the premium tasting, bowling, and snacks available downstairs.
The main wine tasting will feature 20 wine distributors and representatives pouring more than 60 individual tastes of thoughtfully sourced wines, spirits and beer! The upstairs tasting area is open to both GA and VIP ticket holders. All wine is available for on premise consumption alongside the creative and farm sourced cuisine from our friends at Block 16. WIne is also available to take home and enjoy over the holidays.
Downstairs in the Bowlatorium, hosts Brook Page of Synergy Fine WInes and importer Schatzi Wines will host the basement lounge adjacent to the bowling alley, offering additional wines to taste, and endless enthusiasm. Five bowling lanes and snacks are available on a first come basis. DJ Eric Ziegler will set an upbeat, high energy tone for the night.
There are plenty of options for finding wines for the holidays, none which will offer such an exciting array of wines in a unique setting, surrounded by hundreds of other like-minded enthusiasts. Come celebrate at Field Blend II and make an impact in finding a cure for juvenile diabetes while stocking your cellar for the holiday season.
