Ray's Wine & Spirits improves a lot & celebrates 56 years on Sunday

Every Milwaukee neighborhood has a liquor store (or three), but some neighborhoods have wine, spirits and beer emporia that are worth driving across town for.

Ray’s Wine and Spirits, 8930 W. North Ave. in Wauwatosa, is one of those places, thanks not only to a deep selection of wine, craft beer and liquor, but because of its upstairs growler gallery with tastings and other events, outdoor seating and, above all, a knowledgeable staff.

The shop opened in its current location in 1961 and has recently improved a lot, so to speak...

So why not throw a 56th anniversary parking lot party, right?

That’s what Ray’s is doing from noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 16.

Johnathan Dye will be there selling his delicious Mr. Dye’s Pies, Marco Pollo and Fatty Patty Burger food trucks will be on hand dishing out tasty goodness, while The Steelheads will perform from 1 until 5 p.m.

Ray’s will sell its booze slushies and there will be "a beautiful, big-ass beer truck" dispensing five beers and Sprecher Root Beer. There will also be ladder ball and bean bag toss.

There’s no cover charge and everyone is welcome at the event, which takes place rain or shine (there are tents!).
