SPECIAL EVENT: Walt Churchill’s Market, 3320 Briarfield. Maumee, (419) 794-4000. 12:00 – 5:00 PM. Jim Krusinski Tribute Wine Tasting. As many of you already know, Jim Krusinski, our assistant wine manager, died early last Friday.  He had been taken ill about one month ago and never recovered.  Jim was well liked by everyone here at Walt Churchill's Market and many of you also knew him and liked him as well.  He will be sorely missed. To show our respect for Jim, we are having a Tribute to Jim Krusinski Wine Tasting on Saturday March 21, 2015. We will taste some of Jim’s favorite wines in the store and celebrate his life doing the thing he loved so much, drinking and talking about wine. The Tribute tasting is replacing the usually scheduled Saturday Wine Tasting. (State law requires a minor charge for wine tastings.  Even in a situation like this.)
