Exploring Sherry Wine Class @ The Granary at Fearrington Village
Jun 1 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

We’ve all known it as the drink of choice for our older relatives – Tio Pepe’s Fino, chilled and uncomplicated. These past couple of years, sherry has made such a wonderful comeback, showing savvy drinkers that sherry isn’t past its prime. Olorosos with its wonderful heady nutty aromatics, to a Manzanilla’s apple, almond flavors perfect for sipping alone or for mixing that perfect “welcome, summer” cocktail. How does this fortified wine get such complex flavors? How it is made? Join Beverage Director Paula de Pano as she discusses her favorite fortified wine.
$45 includes tasting plate, wine, service fee and tax. Reserve at 919.542.2121.

Monica Bill Barnes- Happy Hour @ PSI Theatre at Durham Arts Council
Jun 6 @ 6:30 pm

In their persistent failure to become these icons, we can see something more special—two individuals desperate to wrest new meaning from our most familiar ideas of ourselves.

Join Monica and Anna for a cool one!
