The Roaring 20s and the carefree spirit of that era will serve as this year's theme for the annual Kirkwood Wine Stroll, one of the neighborhood signature events.
Sponsored by the Kirkwood Business Association, the Stroll — Friday, Sept. 27th from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. — is the historic neighborhood's annual fest to show off the shops, eateries and galleries that comprise its central commercial corridor.
A portion of Hosea L. Williams Drive, the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, will will be closed to vehicular traffic to allow patrons to visit the different shops and sample wines from around the world at different tasting stations.
This year's Stroll coincides with a hub of commercial activity that's occurring along that main corridor.
Among the planned openings or about-to-open spots:
- Kirk Yard Bar and Grill - replacing Kirkwood Bar & Grill
- The Tap Room - going into the Gitchi Ya Ya space
- Savor Wine Boutique - into the former Mission Motif space
- El Mariachi - under renovation in the former Mrs. Winner's Chicken space
- Anne’s Barbeque
- That’s A Wrap - New gift and gift wrapping boutique
- Le Petit Marché - relocation to larger space
