Tampa Theatre's WineFest draws on Monty Python theme

The Knights who say "Ni" have a new quest, this one a little more alcoholic than the last. Monty Python and the Holy Grape is the theme of the Tampa Theatre's annual WineFest fundraiser, scheduled for Sept. 12-18. "I wanted to pick a theme that incorporated some of my favorite things, namely Game of Thrones, shrubbery and swallows," WineFest chairman John Wolfe said in a news release. Patrons are encouraged to come in costumes inspired by the farce for festival events: a wine tasting with local restaurants, boutique wines and a silent auction ($50-$85); a pairing event featuring a five-course menu by Mise En Place chef Marty Blitz ($250); and a brunch with mimosas, bellinis and light wines ($40). New this year is a tasting of eight rare, top-rated wines from a private collection ($200). Tickets go on sale June 2 at the theater box office at (813) 274-8286 and tampatheatre.org. — Caitlin E.
