PBW members enjoy Lucy, Rickey and Wine Tour

Seventy-five PBW members and guests traveled to Jamestown on a beautiful fall day on Sept. 30 to visit the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and Desilu Studios. The museum contains original awards, photographs and personal memorabilia. The studios are devoted to the I Love Lucy TV series with exact recreations of the New York City apartment, Hollywood hotel suite, along with other sets, showcases, displays and exhibits.

Lunch was held in the Tropicana Room which was a recreation of Ricky Ricardo’s famous Manhattan night club. During lunch, episodes of the I Love Lucy TV series were shown. One of the episodes was Lucy’s Vitameatavegamin commercial which members and guests were able to recreate on one of the sets in the Desilu Studios.

Next was a trip to the Lucille Ball Memorial Park in Celoron to visit the new life-size bronze statue of Lucille Ball and a drive by the home in which Lucy was raised.

The afternoon ended at 21 Brix Winery in Portland where members and guests participated in wine tastings and enjoyed the beautiful weather and scenery. 21 Brix is one of Lake Erie Wine Country’s newest wineries with a 60-foot tasting bar and picturesque porch with a view of the vineyards and cherry trees surrounding the winery. A favorite tasting was their Apple Wine which can be served warm with vanilla or cinnamon.

Thank you to all who participated and helped make PBW’s latest adventure a success!
