Great Jazz, Free Giveaways, Specialty Food Samples, Beer Tasting, July 22 at NEW TOWN!

Imagine a day filled with a beer-tasting event, specialty food samples, free giveaways and great jazz tunes. On Saturday, July 22, New Town is home to its second beer-tasting event, the Marsala’s Market, Toy Box and Lotions & Potions Grand Opening, and the first annual Jazz Festival!

The Marsala’s Market Grand Opening is a day of specials, complimentary food and wine samples and fun prizes for all. Come see why Marsala’s is quickly becoming one of the favorite markets in town, known for it’s USDA Choice Meats, hand-cut, fresh-daily, Boar’s Head Deli, Oberweis products and more. Many specialty food representatives will be on hand to talk about their products and give away free samples! Mark and Debbie Hohenshell, owners, have surpassed expectations with a wide variety of products to satisfy even the most discriminating buyers. Best yet, they cook for you several nights a week with their prepared foods so you don’t have to.

Lotions & Potions, a specialty bath shop, and The Toy Box are now open in the south kiosks at the New Town outdoor amphitheater. Enjoy grand opening specials all day on July 22 …. There will also be fun giveaways, including bath and body samples from Lotions & Potions and bubbles for the kids (and kids at heart) at The Toy Box while supplies last. Lotions & Potions carries all-natural products from the renowned Bee Natural and Renaud line. If you’re looking for that unique gift or scent, you’ll find it at this elegant bath shop. And The Toy Box … what can we say? It’ll take you back to the days of classic army figures, wooden puzzles, plush stuffed animals, unique arts & crafts, wind-up toys and more …real finds!
The word is out on the second beer-tasting event at the Prancing Pony Books & CafĂ© back courtyard from 2 – 5 on July 22. For $5, residents and visitors are invited to taste 20 import beers from around the world. Participants must show up between 2 – 4 p.m. to participate in the event, and we are limiting the event to 200 participants. Of course, you have to be 21 to participate.

Once you’ve checked off the 20 beers on your card, wander over to the outdoor amphitheater for a fun-filled night of great jazz tunes under the stars, beginning at 5 p.m. Richard Kennison, Entertainment Director, has rounded up some of the best bands in the St. Louis area, including The Readus Miller Project, ptah Williams, Da’ Jazz Club, and New World Harmonica Jazz Featuring Sandy Weltman.
