Villa Milagro hosts “Loud Guitars, Big Cigars & Ugly Ties”


A favorite and affordable gift for Dad back in the days before “casual Fridays” and “dress-down-days” was a tie.

As fashion changes – so does the tie. And many of them are just downright ugly.

This weekend at Villa Milagro Vineyards, 33 County Road 627, Finesville (Phillipsburg), N.J., that ugly tie just might win you a prize. Hosting its annual “Loud Guitars, Big Cigars & Ugly Ties,” the vineyard invites you out for fun in the sun on its lawns overlooking a panoramic view of its vineyard and four counties in two states.

R&B Band The Kerry Blue Band will perform. Fine Cuban-style cigars will be offered for sale with instruction on the “right way” to cut, trim and savor a stogie. The vineyard’s windy knolls and wide open space makes smoke disappear just inches from its source.

Bring your own food and have a picnic. Villa Milagro Vineyards will offer its wines for sale. Sit under the big tent, in the shade of a tree or in the sun. Bring a blanket – no pets or popups permitted. For information, call 908-995-2072 or visit online.
