On Wednesday, June 19, 2013, Danish-tinged and wine-soaked Central Coast getaway spot, Solvang, California, will host the "Midsommer Musik" version of their monthly "Third Wednesday" celebrations, to kick off the summer vacation - or staycation - season. The day's varied activities will include their weekly Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market, deals at local restaurants and gourmet food purveyors, the popular Third Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk, discounts at local boutiques and hotels, and free, live music - from blues to jazz to 80s and classic rock, to folk, Americana and country - 12 Noon to 12 Midnight, all over town.
Visiting foodies will be able to delight in the local bounty of the weekly Farmers Market, as well as deals at Solvang restaurants like a three-course prix fixe menu for just $29.95, at the lauded Root 246; or, 20% off of a wood-fired pizza and pasta-laden lunch at Cecco Ristorante. Other food and treats purveyors get in on the action with discounts on items such as local, artisan jams, jellies, and pickles at Succulent Café; or, percentages off of Solvang's famous baked goods at the Solvang Bakery, Mortensen's Danish Bakery or Olsen's Danish Village Bakery.
One particular highlight of the day's deals and debauchery is the afore-mentioned Wine & Beer Walk, a monthly, ticketed activity ($20.00 per person) which entails wine or beer tastings at five venues of participants' choice, a logo glass, and a map to guide tasters to crowd-pleasing Solvang watering holes like the Wandering Dog Wine Bar, Casa Cassara Winery's tasting room, the Solvang Brewing Company, the Olive House, and more.
