A great reason to end 'Dry January' early!

Some people like to take a break from alcohol during the first month of the new year. You know, after endless holiday parties and gatherings with family and friends, it surely makes sense to hit the pause button on wine and spirits. But there is a really good reason to release the pause, and get back to enjoying the great pleasure of raising a glass…or two.

Coming up on January 25, it’s time for the “Raise Your Glass Festival” at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island. At this annual wine and food event, you and your friends can appreciate endless wine, ciders, beer and spirits, along with music, and entertainment. Food is available for sale, and a special celebrity sports figure will be appearing at the festival.

There are two sessions with various ticket prices. Visit http://bit.ly/raiseyourglassfestivalLI for information and tickets.


The “Raise Your Glass Festival” on Long Island is featured on “Bagels and Broadway with Valerie Smaldone” radio show and podcast.

“Bagels and Broadway with Valerie Smaldone” can be heard every Saturday morning from 9-10 on WNYM radio, online, Alexa and podcast.
