March 3: Krug’s 187th Birthday Bash at Charles Krug Winery


An adult birthday party can range from a “crazy night = painful morning” situation to a “refusal to acknowledge that the earth actually did complete its orbit, which means I’m older” affair. What happened to the simplicity of the kid’s party, where there’s cake and a performing clown? This weekend at Charles Krug Winery, the owners celebrate the 187th birthday of its founder, Charles Krug, in a very, um, intimate way. After a three-course meal with fine wines, the celebration takes an otherworldly turn as spirit medium Leanne Thomas attempts to contact Krug himself to wish him happy birthday in the afterlife. That’s right—dinner and a medium. Join Charles and other birthday guests on Saturday, March 3, at Charles Krug Winery. 2800 Main St.,St. Helena. 6pm. $100. 707.967.2200.
