Interlaken, N.Y. - Put the kids to bed, get a  sitter and head out to Americana Vineyards Winery on Saturday, June 21, because Whiskey Tango Sideshow is setting up their tent and putting on their "Wine & Circus" under the big top beginning at the winery for a second year! The popular Ithaca-based troupe is an assemblage of burlesque dancers, singers, acrobats, fire-troupe, musicians, and costume designers that have developed their own unique, modern spin on classic burlesque, which they have termed cabaret nouveau.

"Even in 'high season' it can be tough to find things to do at night around here," explains Joseph Gober, Jr., owner of Americana. "So we're happy to provide an evening of what promises to be outrageous and over-the-top entertainment!"

The show kicks off at 8:30pm and you must be 21 or over to attend. In addition to the show, wine and finger foods will be available, including a circus staple -- fresh popped popcorn. Guests can also get dinner before the show at the Crystal Lake Café which ends dinner service at 8:00pm.

Tickets are just $15 per person in advance and $20 at the door, but seating is limited. So the winery suggests people get their tickets in advance by calling the winery at 607-387-6801, or stopping by. Tickets are on sale now.

Because the show is outside under the tent, there is a rain date the following Saturday, June 28.

A spokeswoman for the troupe guarantees, "From some serious sass, to the downright bizarre, the Whiskey Tango Sideshow has a little something-something for everyone! It's a true show experience!"


About Americana Vineyards Winery and Crystal Lake Café:

Americana Vineyards Winery is a destination winery located 15 minutes north of Ithaca, New York right off Cayuga Lake in the center of New York's Finger Lakes Wine Region at
4367 East Covert Road in Interlaken. Americana opened in 1981, and is a founding member and anchor winery for the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. The Winery added an
additional facility in 1999 for private parties, and Crystal Lake Café in 2006, a from-scratch café for year-round dining -- including their popular Sunday Brunch. Americana is the only winery in the area to host two year-round musical series: Friday Night Happy Hour from 6:00pm-8:00pm
and Sunday Afternoon Music from 4:00pm-6:00pm. During warm weather the bands play in the Pavilion on the back lawn, and in cold or inclement weather, they play in the "Small Barn." Americana produces 26 wines, many of which are nationally and internationally acclaimed, including their Chardonnay, which recently took Double Gold at the Florida International Wine Competition.

Americana and the Café are members of the Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty, and supporters of many local causes including animal rights and elimating childhood hunger. For more information, visit or "like" Americana Vineyards Winery on Facebook.
