The Bacchanalian

  • Jefferson Street Pub 500 Jefferson Street Lafayette, LA, 70501 United States (map)

"The Bacchanalian" is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana's annual wine tasting fundraiser. This wine tasting event is for connoisseurs as well as "boxed wine lovers." (Must be 21 or older to attend.)

HOW IT WORKS: Teams consisting of 1 to 3 participants, are admitted by bringing 3 bottles of the same wine to the event. Each team host raises a minimum donation for their team.

1 person team = a minimum of a $50 donation

2 person team = a minimum of a $100 donation

3 person team = a minimum of a $150 donation

At the event, 2 of the each teams' 3 bottles of wine will be bagged, tagged and assigned a number at random and set out for tasting. The 3rd bottle will be set aside and left unopened. Please remember that teams can consist of 1 to 3 participants. Thus a group of 4 participants, for example, will be considered 2 teams and must bring 6 bottles of wine to the event (3 for each team).

PRIZES: The teams that bring the top favorite wine will take home everyone's third, unopened bottle of wine! The team that brings the least favorite bottle of wine will take home their own unopened bottle of wine.
