Tickets are $15 per person.
A Wine Tasters Special runs Saturday, October 3, departing at 6 p.m. The trip features a sampling of premium wines, a lecture from WNY Wine Tastings’ Josh Blumberg and hors d’oeuvres. This 21-and-over event is $27 per person pre-paid (reservations required). Bloomberg will also host “Ale on the Rails” on Saturday, October 17; also a 21-and-over event, the train departs at 6 p.m. and costs $27 per person (reservations required).
