Brauninger to Headline VIP Event

FRANKLIN, TN (10/03/19) – On Saturday, November 2, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. downtown Franklin comes alive with Wine Down Main Street, a unique wine tasting event that takes place along Historic Main Street in Franklin, Tennessee.  Voted the number one Fundraiser/Charity Event for 10 consecutive years in the Sizzle Awards, it’s the best night out all year: the streets are closed to traffic; wines, beers and spirits, provided by Lipman Brothers, are poured in the shops; food samplings are provided by area restaurants; and local musicians entertain you along the way. 

Wine Down Main Street benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee and has raised more than $2 million dollars since its inception in support of youth ages 5 – 18 years old.

The highly anticipated, luxury hotel The Harpeth Hotel will host VIP guests this year. The Harpeth is nestled on the banks of the Harpeth river, right in the heart of historic downtown Franklin, and opens late fall 2019. VIP guests will be treated to scrumptious food from the hotels’ 1799 Kitchen & Cocktails; as well as select Lipman Bros. wines and food from Buca di Beppo; Menu Maker Catering; and Taziki’s, all while enjoying the soulful sounds of Brauninger.  VIP tickets are $125 per person and include admission to the VIP location, beginning at 6 p.m., with open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and live music.
