Booyah hosting wine night at ballpark

By Heather Graves

ASHWAUBENON – With the 2020 baseball season wrapped up, The Green Bay Booyah is switching gears and opening the ballpark for an unique evening filled with wine and food.

“We truly want to use our beautiful facility all year long,” said Brian Kuklinski, corporate advertising manager for The Green Bay Booyah. “We are always looking for new events to have here.”

The Booyah has teamed with Captain’s Walk and Von Stiehl wineries to host Wine Night in the VerHalen Club at Capital Credit Union Park in Ashwaubenon at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17.

“We are so proud to partner with them,” Kuklinski said. “We love that you can find some amazing wine right here in Green Bay, and we were happy to showcase their wines all summer long during our games.”

Kuklinski said this wine night is an event like no other.

“There is nothing stuffy about this wine dinner,” he said. “It will be a very fun, laid-back night out.”

The evening will feature a four-course dinner, but Kuklinski said the courses aren’t quite what you’d expect.

“We are doing a little elevated take on foods you would find here at Capital Credit Union Park if you are taking in an event in the club level,” he said.

Dinner leads off with a house salad, followed by the appetizer course – deep fried booyah.

On deck, the main course – a choice between smoked brisket tacos or smoked chicken quarters. Batting cleanup, a dessert like no other, an elevated take on a ballpark favorite – funnel cake a la mode.

Kuklinski said each course will be paired with wines handpicked by local wine specialists.

“Captain’s Walk and Von Stiehl have found some amazing pairings to go with the food,” he said. “It is really amazing the science that goes into figuring out the pairings. Our chef and their wine experts have worked closely to make sure that everything is just right.”

Tickets can be purchased by calling 920-497-7225 or online at tinyurl.com/BooyahWine.

Kuklinski said when ordering tickets online, guests need to enter “1” in the quantity box to purchase a table of four.

Booyah staff will follow up with attendees to verify menu choices for each guest.

Tickets are $45 per person.

The event is limited to 40 people – 10 tables of four.

Kuklinski said tickets must be purchased in groups of four so groups are kept together. Individual tickets are not available.

“At a seated event inside the club space, we can do close to 170,” he said. “However to meet distancing standards, we are limiting the event, so we will have tables plenty spaced apart. Everything will be thoroughly cleaned as we did all season long in keeping our fans at Booyah games safe.”

Kuklinski said masks will also be required when not eating or drinking.

“As we did all year, we will follow all local and state guidelines,” he said. “As this event is being held indoors, we will ask our guests to wear masks when not actively eating or drinking.”

Kuklinski said there are more events on the horizon for Capital Credit Union Park.

“We have some other events in the works and will be making them public in the near future,” he said.
