DrinkMaryland, a Market-Like Pop Up Event, is Coming to Olde Towne Gaithersburg In September

by MCS Staff

DrinkMaryland, a market-like pop up event, will make a stop at Olde Towne Plaza in Gaithersburg on Friday, September 9, from 4 to 8 p.m. Featuring local Maryland wine, cider & beer, this open-air market is perfect for a casual Friday night. Learn about the local craft beverage industry from the vintners, brewers & distillers themselves while sampling their products. Enjoy live music, visit with artisans & crafters, and enjoy food from vendors & local restaurants in the historic commercial center of Gaithersburg.

Unlike traditional wine tasting events, DrinkMaryland is an open marketplace for visitors to explore. Public entry to the event is free; tasting passes for the sampling of wine, cider, mead, beer, and distilled spirits can be purchased for $20 in advance or $25 on-site. Order a sampling pass here. Artisans & crafters are still being sought for this Maryland Makers event. For vendor information, please contact the Community Museum.

The Only Two will be performing at the event: Charlie Lowery; guitar, harmonica, vocals. Al Young; lead guitar; a lot of music from only two guys. (Charlie plays the harmonica & guitar at the same time!) Sing along with “Bye- Bye Miss American Pie, tap your feet to “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In”, or just relax with old time jazz, acoustic blues, contemporary folk, old favorites & originals.

This event is poorly named and uses our MD state logo to promote drinking alcohol. In this day and age of sensitivity, I am shocked that no one has picked up on this. I would strongly suggest they change the name of this event. Imagine if the event was called, “Smoke Maryland” and that it was a marijuana themed event with marijuana edibles tastings, products, etc, etc. Drinking alcohol responsibly of course is fine for those 21 & over. But this festival is absolutely not in any way an event for a family and children. Change the name and the logo because it makes it appear the state itself is endorsing if not running the event.

It used the flag pattern like many other businesses do. Also there probably are events named Smoke Maryland. Relax, this is a weird comment.
