    The fee covers: Up to 4 people per boat, Reserved tie-up for the day, Entry to the Winefest, tasting privileges, commemorative stemware.
    It's my understanding tickets purchased solo, minus the docking pass, are $35.
    While the event is a little steep, I compensate in fuel savings, as I'm 5 minutes away. Plus, the Ms. is happy and it dovetails nicely with trolling for stripers in the same waters on alternate nights.:smt115
    Hope to see you there.

    This info is for the Winefest, same location as Waterside.

    WATERSIDE Assessment....
    Marina accommodations are fine, slips are reasonable and somewhat protected. Security is first rate.
    Dockhands are helpful, notice a repeating tipper, and love the extra's we provided them from the grill.
    Slip fee was $1.50 per ft. per night.
    "When you come in, just tell US where you want to be" they said for next time. Noted.
    One evening we can in to the Marina for a few hours and found you can park (dock) for up to 3 hours for $5.35.
    Cool deal.

    Now for the Waterside establishments.
    Food was so-so, service was weak. They are obviously training employee's and using customers as test subjects.
    Coffee, they were out once, then didn't know how to operate the machine the next time....There was more.....
    We brought the grill and ate like kings, and will continue to do so.
