This week's Dish column takes a look at all the great dining options in Marine on St. Croix. But here's another reason to head to the Wisconsin border: Taste of Stillwater on July 9.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.on the grounds of Saint Croix Vineyards, where guests will sample local wine, beer, and food, plus enjoy live entertainment and shopping from local merchants and artisans.

Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the gate, and include one tasting flight of Saint Croix Vineyards wine, one tasting flight of Lift Bridge Brewery beers, and snacks from local restaurants such as the Hanger Room, Mara Mi, Coffee Cottage, Fresh Fields Bakery, and Acapulco. (Additional wine, beer, and food will be available for purchase.)

Also, guests can tour the Saint Croix Vineyards and take a shuttle to tour the new Lift Bridge Brewery.
