Attendees Can Enjoy Beer, Wine, Coffee and Gourmet Fare While Enjoying Singer-Songwriter Performances and Poetry Readings
Festival attendees will have a new option for refreshments and entertainment at the 2016 Gaithersburg Book Festival: the Brew & Vine Café from Dawson’s Market. Café patrons can sit down with a gourmet snack and a cup of coffee, pint of beer or glass of wine while enjoying live performances by singer-songwriters and poets.
“Dawson’s is thrilled to be a part of the Gaithersburg Book Festival and to bring locally sourced and healthy foods to an amazing literary event,” said Mike Houston, manager of Dawson’s Market, which is located in Rockville Town Center.
Open during Festival hours, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, the Brew & Vine Café will be located beside the Concert Pavilion Stage, adjacent to the book signing tents. Dawson’s will offer specialty-brewed coffee; bagels, wraps, antipasto and cheese plates; and a handpicked selection of beverages from local wineries and microbreweries. Patrons must present their IDs and wear wristbands in order to purchase beer and wine.
