Hundreds of winners gathered March 23 to sample the best beer, wine, cider and spirits — along with food from the Davenport's many eateries, from the Post Street Alehouse to Table 13. The swanky Vintage Hollywood theme was driven home by the vocal stylings of Heather Villa and her band, Villa Blues 'N Jazz.
