Corning, NY - Corning's Gaffer District is excited to announce the Drink Responsibly Designated Driver appreciation program sponsored by Bottles & Corks. This program will be featured during the first Wine & Beer Tasting event of the 2014 season as a part of Cabin Fever, Friday, February 28, 2014 from 5-8pm. Select businesses in the Gaffer District will offer free non-alcoholic drinks and other tokens of appreciation to designated drivers during our wine and craft beer tasting events this year.
