You know those nights when you’re in the mood for some killer food al fresco style, a great glass of wine and live music? If you’re anything like me, when would you NOT crave that? Well, we are in luck because Chaddsford Winery (632 Baltimore Pike, 610-388-6221) is presenting their “Summer Nights Under the Stars” Friday Concert Series, featuring local musicians and, of course, great wines. Throughout the month of June, local barbecue outfit Nick’s Chicks will be attending the concerts to sell grilled food themed to the night’s musical style. If you don’t have time to pack your own picnic, just grab a blanket and pick up your food on-site.
“Summer Nights Under the Stars” takes place every Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. through August 27. “This year we added fun BBQs to our June concert nights to make it easy and simple,” said winery proprietor Lee Miller. “Visitors can still bring a picnic, but if they come directly from work or just want the night off, they can get some great grub here. [The Friday Concert Series is] a perfect date night or a great way to meet up with friends.”
The rest of the June lineup includes:
June 18 – Rock ‘n’ roll to classic soul and Nick’s classic BBQ featuring Been There Done That, a Powerhouse 10-piece group
June 25 – Bluegrass and Nick’s Chicks fried chicken featuring The Mermaid Mountain Men
Other summer music events, including their annual Fourth of July “Big Bang BBQ” Weekend July 3 and 4, and Sangria Sundays July 11, 18 and 25, are also planned.
Admission is $22 per person. Reservations are recommended for all concerts; please call (610) 388-6221. New this year is the Summer Concert Saver, call for details.
