Russ’s Wine & Food Experience @ Embassy Suites
Feb 22 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm



Come out and sample our delicious sauces and seasonings along with other fantastic food & drinks found at Russ’s Market.

From the event:

The 2019 Russ’s Wine and Food Experience will be held at the Embassy Suites on Friday, Feb. 22 from 5–8 p.m. This is the 11th year for the event, which has become a favorite of Lincoln-area wine lovers. The Russ’s Wine and Food Experience, presented by Russ’s Market, has raised close to $400,000 for the Lincoln Community Playhouse over the last eleven years.

Approximately 99 booths will fill the main ballroom, offering an international selection of wines. Foodies can sample fine cheeses, gourmet desserts, beef, seafood, and many unique items. Russ’s Market bakers will be making several varieties of fresh baked artisan breads at the event. In addition to the main ballroom, reserve room guests will enjoy an exclusive selection of reserve wines and a buffet prepared by Russ’s Market Catering to You.

“The Wine and Food Experience has become a must-attend event for wine lovers. Experts can enjoy more exclusive wines in the reserve room, while less-experienced guests have the opportunity to try different varieties to see what they like,” said Pat Raybould, president of B&R Stores, Inc. “And the best part is helping the Lincoln Community Playhouse provide entertainment and education programs for our community.”
