Don't you want one more glittering night on the water? Taste of the Lakes has got you.

Summer's almost over; do you know where your next lakefront cocktail, your next tasty niblet, your next hand-rolled cigar is coming from? 

Taste of the Lakes, at Bayview Event Center, is here to help you, plus help some others in need, at the upcoming 17th annual Taste of the Lakes event on September 25. 

Sippers from Prairie Organic Vodka and Excelsior Brewing will pair up with samples from local restaurants including Coalition, Joey Nova’s, Wildfire, Big Bowl, Hazellewood Grill, and others.

To seriously up the bling factor of the evening, Sailor Jerry whiskey will be pouring and International Cigars will be rolling and selling cigars, so bring that pinkie ring and big attitude. 

All of it happens on the shores of lovely Lake Minnetonka under the glittering Indian Summer moon, benefiting Meals on Wheels South Shore and Metro Friendship Foundation for Autism.

$35, or $40 at the door. Discounts available for kids. Order tickets here.
