BLACK FRIDAY Wine & Beer Tastings in the Berkshires, home of ARLO GUTHRIE'S 'Alice's Restaurant by Philip S. Kampe

Tired of shopping on Black Friday?
Need a break?
How about a wine or beer break?
Well, if you are in or near the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, you are in luck.
Two local wine shops, Kelly's Package Store of Dalton and Spirited of Lenox have figured out that they can capitalize on the thousands of thirsty shoppers on Black Friday.
Both stores, independently, have scheduled complimentary events for their loyal customers.
"Arlo Guthrie performing at The Guthrie Center near Stockbridge Mass. on Thanksgiving Day 2013"
Arlo lives in the Berkshires, as does James Taylor. Both perform locally, erratically, year round.
Wouldn't it be great if one or both of them showed up for the Black Friday tastings?
