    Brenham Main Street Director Jennifer Eckermann said, “We wanted to give the Summer Sip a fun theme this year, and what’s more fun than the 80’s!”  Eckermann says in conjunction with the wine stroll, The Barnhill Center is holding a “Totally 80’s Movie Weekend” at the historic Simon Theater.  Three of the all-time favorite movies from the 80’s will be shown, including “Pretty in Pink” on Friday, June 8th, and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “Footloose” on Saturday, June 9th.  Eckermann is hoping lots of folks will visit downtown Brenham that weekend and enjoy sampling wine and reliving the 80’s.  The “2018 Summer Sip 80’s Style” is sponsored in part by Cathy Cole of Heritage Texas Country Properties.
