Geja’s Café, located 340 W. Armitage Ave., celebrates the coming of Fall with the debut of its three-month wine festival America the Beautiful, running now through Monday November 30th. Throughout these three months, Geja’s guests will have the opportunity to drink wines from sea to shining sea across the United States, with safety for patrons who dine in restaurant at the utmost importance.  

“We are all faced with unprecedented times across the country, from the effects of a full-fledged pandemic, to a historic economic downturn, as well as Mother Nature’s impact on our homes with a record number of storms throughout the year,” said, Darla Lawler, Geja’s Café Wine Director. “We are experiencing this from the Atlantic to the Pacific, but with this, we are also reminded by the greatness of America in so many ways. We want to feature some of the great wineries across our wonderful continent with our America the Beautiful Wine Festival as a reminder to enjoy the little things, at least for one meal.”
