Proof that you can throw a beer festival just about anywhere and people will come, the third annual Lakewood Wine & Craft Beer Festival has been a success despite the fact that it takes place on a two-story open-air parking deck. At this year's event, which takes place from 5 to 10 p.m., more than 100 wines and beers will be available to sample. VIP tickets are available for $65; they include early entrance at 4 p.m., access to a selection of premier wine and beer offerings, admittance into the VIP Tent with VIP only bathrooms, an assortment of free food and “a few extra surprises.” Pre-paid general admission tickets are available for $40 in advance, $50 at the gate. Designated driver tickets are available for $10. General admission and designated driver ticket holders can enter the festival beginning at 5 p.m. (Niesel) 14701 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, wineandcraftbeerfestival.com.
