Sips of the Season, started in 2012, is an annual Stroll that brings guests through Historic Old Mandeville, with lots of fun and festivities along the way. The Stroll is based on the German tradition of going to Christkindlmarkts that are filled to the brim with holiday cheer – AND flowing with Glühwein and other tasty beverages.
This year, participants will stroll with their mugs in hand through 38 different stops, sampling an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage at each. Many of our shops along the way will be open for business, as well as many restaurants. Grab a bite to eat along the way and get some holiday shopping done too!
PURCHASE YOUR MUG EARLY! THEY WILL SELL OUT! Mugs are $30, cash or check only (mugs can be purchased with a credit card for $32 at the Book and the Bean ONLY).
