RHINELANDER - Beer, wine and food were on the menu for sampling yesterday in Rhinelander.

The third annual Hodag Hops and Vines took place at the Elbo Room Lounge.

It's the first time they're having it in downtown Rhinelander.

People had the chance to enjoy food and drinks from a selection of Rhinelander restaurants and breweries.

The chamber of commerce sold tickets online for the first time this year.

Executive Director Lara Reed says it helped bring in more people from outside the Northwoods.

"I sent tickets to Kenosha, Wausau, to Phillips. So really we're hopefully drawing from a wide range, which is ultimately hope of any event that we have," said Reed.

"I want people to come and experience Rhinelander. I want them to see that on this great day there's tones of restaurants and shops and things downtown. So we're just kind of giving them an excuse to come experience the town."

Reed says the money raised from yesterdays event will be used to make next year bigger and better.

RHINELANDER - You can find everything from edible berries to garnishes right in your own backyard.

"Master Gardeners of the North" wants to teach you how.

Tonight's class will be on foraging for edibles in the Northwoods.

Even though edibles can be easy to find, volunteer Tom Jerow says you should leave enough behind for wildlife and next year's crop.

" You should really link up with a mentor, someone who knows what they're doing. Someone who can identify the food that you're looking for," says Jerow.

You can find nuts, grapes, and sumac pretty easily this time of year.

The Master Gardeners meet tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the Oneida County Senior Center.
