The Queen of Soul, Wine Fest, Oktoberfest : Columbus Day Weekend Happenings

Courtesy of

Even if you’re not lucky to be getting a long weekend out of this Columbus Day (the whining line begins behind me), you can still jam lots of fun into this weekend around South Jersey.

My featured attraction is the one and only Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who headlines Saturday at the Trump Taj Mahal.  Aretha will… belt out songs from her  50- year career while backed by a 22-piece band.

Quite simply, this woman is living history and this show is not to be missed.  At 70, Aretha is planning a new album and is working with the producers of a film biopic of her life story.

Here are more highlights from a busy weekend in South Jersey…
