*Before you start reading, please start the video below. It's the official theme song to Salena's Sangriaville and it's the only way to get the full effect of what's going on here.*

I remember the first time I drank a glass of sangria. I felt like a noble hummingbird drinking in a spring's first nectar. I felt as though I had reached up to Olympus, and pulled down the ambrosia of the gods. I felt, readers, as I suspect you will feel when you set foot into the softly-lit and secluded Sangriaville, brought to you with loving care by summer's son, the one and only Salena's.

Sangriaville will be open in the evenings on June 20 and 21, then again on June 26, 27 and 28, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. That's the first Friday and Saturday, then the second Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Jazz Fest.

What is sangria? I'm so glad you asked. Simply put, it's summer you can drink. More comprehensively, it's a wine-based drink with fruit that came to the U.S. from Spain or Portugal. It is sweet, cold, and delicious. And Salena's sangria is the best in town. I've had it. It's amazing. 

In Sangriaville, there are no worries - it's like Hawaii in that way. It's also set back away from the crowds of people that jostle in Jazz Fest. We think of it as a refuge. A sweet, winey refuge. Follow the stringed lights through our alley, and behold Sangriaville. There will be music. There will be mystery. There will be Salena's sangria. 

(You could also come through the back parking lot but you won't feel as mysterious)
