2nd Flights of Fancy event to take place July 16, 2010
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – June 14, 2010 – As a hub for culture and fashion, it is no
surprise that downtown New Haven is steadily gaining a reputation as one of the premier
shopping destinations on the East Coast. With over 50 specialty boutiques through out the
Elm City, the shopping scene is widespread, yet tailored to the individual consumer.
Tapping into this reputation, New Haven’s 2nd Flights of Fancy event, on July 16, 2010,
will feature in-store wine tastings, special discounts and extraordinary giveaways at 25
select stores in the Broadway and Chapel districts. Following the success of the first
Flights of Fancy event in February, the Broadway and Chapel merchants have decided to
bring the event back to New Haven this summer. Registration is required as the number
of guests is limited and the event is expected to fill up quickly.
From 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. participating stores will open their doors to host wine tastings and
offer patrons an opportunity to receive “25% off their favorite item”. The Flights of
Fancy itinerary includes:
• 4:30 pm – 6 pm: Registration at the Shubert Theater. Cost is $10 per person,
which includes 25 tastings of wine, a complimentary Flights of Fancy wine glass,
and a map that conveniently lists all participating merchants. Guests of Flights of
Fancy must be 21 years of age and must show valid id to participate. The
Shubert will offer refreshments to guests before they venture out into the
Broadway and Chapel Districts.
• 5 pm – 8 pm: Visit the twenty-five participating merchants in the Chapel and
Broadway Shopping districts who are hosting wine tastings, courtesy of The
Wine Thief, and enjoy special discounts and exclusive sales. There will be live,
entertainment throughout the districts as you stroll from store to store. A Flights
of Fancy trolley will conveniently transport guests from the Shubert Theater to the
Broadway district between 5 pm, and 7 pm.
• 8:15 pm: Guests are encouraged to return to the Shubert Theater for a chance to
win one of over 25 fabulous prizes, while enjoying complimentary coffee.
