Correction: May 28, 2013
An earlier version of this article erroneously reported that Seifert & Jones Wine Merchants’ opening events coincided with the June edition of the downtown Bellingham Art Walk. The Art Walk actually takes place on the first Friday of each month, meaning its June edition is on Friday, June 7. Find more information at
