Every Monday, our community of creatives comes together for coffee and conversation (and sometimes baked goods and spontaneous dance parties). This time helps provide time to share your creative ideas and dreams with fellow artists, develop friendships and find community, and start your week off right.
*Notes* on the Wine Tasting Class…
First of all, it will be a lot of fun!
We will taste 7 wines; an aperitif when guests arrive followed by two whites and four reds. The focus will be to teach you how to determine the marks of quality in a glass of wine, which has very little to do with price (which is more about supply and demand and hype). Though not the focus, several appetizers will be served along with the wines that you can experiment pairing with!
Greg Hardee became an expert on wines and pairing while managing an exclusive restaurant which offered blind tastings with pairings that were nearly perfection.
Since then his New Wine School has held many seminars on learning what the pros know about the art of determining high value wines in Charlotte, North Carolina. Join us for this amazing one-time event! Limited space, 10 available tickets.
These rising stars of the alt-folk music scene layer stringed instruments, harmonies, and driving rhythms in toe-tapping songs that reveal a sophisticated sense of melody.
The Hunts are a band from the southlands of Chesapeake, Virginia, made up of seven brothers and sisters who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives. Ranging from ages 17 to 25, twin sisters Jenni and Jessi and their five brothers Josh, Jonathan, Jordan, Justin, and Jamison all learned to sing and play violin as children and spent much of their youth performing throughout their community.
After widening their following by playing at theaters and festivals around the country—and teaching themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums—The Hunts started experimenting with songwriting and have since recorded two albums of unique, soulful and uplifting tunes.
This will be an intimate house show and a backyard, garden experience with the band! Limited tickets available, grab your ticket below! Tickets: $20
