If wine is your ticket

Treat your Valentine to a Mardi Gras & Valentine’s Day celebration all in one and let the good times roll!  Or, as they say in New Orleans, laissez le bon temps roulez at Stetson Winery from 3 to 7 pm on Sunday, February 14.

The lively Gateway Band (violin, guitar and bass trio) will play live Cajun selections. Bring a mask if you have one and be prepared to dance!

A buffet dinner will be prepared by Chef Alex Mayo and the Kingman High School Culinary Class, in traditional New Orleans style and a portion of all ticket sales will go to support Chef Alex Mayo’s Culinary Class.  These young future chefs hold Arizona’s #1 spot for its “mystery basket” at the ACF Chefs Association of Arizona competition!

Tickets are $30 per person and reservations are required.  Click here for more information, or contact Jo Stetson at (928) 692-3329.

If Vodka is more your style

Vodka & Valentine's, A Taste of Arizona Vodkas, will hit five locations across Arizona, including Desert Diamond Distillery in Kingman, on February 12, 13 and 14.  Patrons can sip their way through a flight of three distinctly different Arizona craft made vodkas from 10am to 6pm Friday and Saturday, and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday.

The Vodka & Valentine's event will be held at the Desert Diamond Distillery locations in Kingman and Cottonwood as well as Thumb Butte Distillery in Prescott, Elgin Distillery location in Elgin, and The Independent Distillery in Tucson.   Each location will have their own twists, but all will feature the three Arizona vodka's and chocolate plates paired with craft cocktails featuring each of the Vodkas.

Desert Diamond Distillery's Gold Miner brand Vodka is sugar cane based and sure to be smooth on your taste buds, and maybe a little sweet.

Thumb Butte's grain based Vodka is smooth but robust, and is a delicious surprise.

Elgin Distillery's Vodka is made from French Colombard grapes and sure to attract attention, something everyone will want to try.

“Craft cocktail culture is starting to bring the creativity out of all of us” says Deborah Patt of Desert Diamond, “and it’s really taking off in Arizona!”

Of course, patrons can drop by anytime to enjoy the flight of vodkas, but chocolate plates will be reserved for ticket holders only.  Tickets are $30 per couple.  Desert Diamond Distillery is located at the Kingman Airport at 4875 Olympic Way.  Call Deborah at 702-335-7448 to reserve tickets or for more information.
