‘Toast of the Town’: Sipping to support the Columbus Symphony Orchestra

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) — Wines, beers and spirits are making their way to the Columbus Georgia Convention and Trade Center soon. Last week, the Columbus Symphony Orchestra (CSO) announced it will bring back the “Toast of the Town” on Friday, March 1.

“For more than a decade, ‘Toast of the Town’ has evolved into one of Columbus’ most-celebrated events,” Executive Director of the CSO Kern Wadkins said in a press release about the event.

At “Toast of the Town,” guests will have the opportunity to try wine, beer, spirits and food from over 100 regional vendors. There will also be a “Wine Wall,” hosted by Columbus liquor store The Bottle Shop and a silent auction.
