Maryhill Winery is taking reservations for its annual Sternwheeler Casino Cruise on Saturday, Oct. 6.
The event will run for three hours this year, cruising down the Columbia River on the Portland Spirit's sternwheeler.
Participants can taste wine, nibble on appetizers and play blackjack, craps or roulette with "funny money," so they can't lose. There will be prizes awarded as well.
The event costs $75 for Maryhill Winery wine club members and $85 for guests or non-members. The price includes wine, parking, cruise, the free casino, prizes and appetizers.
The sternwheeler leaves from Marina Park in Cascade Locks, Ore. at 1:30 p.m., with boarding at 1 p.m.
Request a reservation by emailing wine club administrator Shyla Newton at firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of the attendees requesting a reservation. The deadline for reservations is Monday, Oct. 1, or when capacity is reached.
No refunds will be issued after Oct. 1.
