It's that time of year again.

On Sunday, April 26th, your favorite restaurants battle it out in fun-filled events like Queen of the Vine, the Grape Stomp, and, of course, the four-man relay. The Beale Street Wine Race is a tradition that helps kick off Memphis in May, so come out and cheer for your favorite team. Festivities begin with a parade at 1 p.m. on Beale Street. To commemorate the event, we have, for the first time, limited-edition Wine Race posters created and signed by local artist David Lynch, on sale for $25. Posters can be purchased at Alley Katz and Blues City General Store on Beale Street and at 1910 Frame Works, Village Art and Frame, R&W Gallery, BA Framer, and Frame Corner.
