Coupeville Chamber holding Sip ‘n’ Shop

In conjunction with Small Business Saturday, the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce is offering a chance to sip on local wine, dine on local appetizers and shop in the town’s variety of small shops.

Sip ’n’ Shop On the Cove is 3-7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 28 in downtown Coupeville.

For $10, participants get tastings from five Whidbey Island Wineries and Whidbey Island Distillery and dine on appetizers from local restaurants, bakeries, caterers and stores.

And participating Front Street and Coveland businesses will stay open until 7 p.m. for late night shopping.

“It’s all about promoting local business,” said Lynda Eccles with the Coupeville Chamber of Commerce. “We’ve got a lot of businesses participating.

“We’re pretty excited about it.”

Participants also get a passport and after getting it stamped at all participating locations they can enter to win a prize in the drawing.

“We’ve got some super prizes,” Eccles said.

Tickets are available at Front Street Grill, Cascade Insurance, the chamber office and on Facebook at

The first 100 tickets purchased will receive a special Sip ‘n’ Shop etched wine glass.

Tickets will also be for sale at the event.
