Wine tasting in Barnsdall Art Park
Started as a one-off, the Friday Wine Tasting at Barnsdall Art Park has quickly grown into the neighborhood's biggest summer draw. This year has brought a couple of slight changes — tickets are available online only and the price is now $20 instead of $15 — but the value and do-good intent of the event is undeniable. Half of the ticket price directly benefits the park, while the other half buys a four-glass flight of wine.
