Wines Tasting with The Mediterranean Way
The Mediterranean Way
1PM – 4PM
It’s Bastille Day, so pretty much as long as you’re drinking wine you’re technically celebrating the French — at least in thought — yes?
I mean, okay, so we’re sampling wine from Greece and Moldova — which are — both European countries like France right…..
Award-winning balsamic vinegar bar, specialty food items, full pours at $5 and bottles available for purchase.
Good enough for me.
It’s going on the list.
Tickets available for FREE on their Facebook page.
Opening Reception: “Religions of the World” by Dee Levinson
2PM – 4PM
Check out this awesome reception which features several galleries of works by artists Dee Levinson and several other Touchstone Gallery artists.
Check out Galleries B and C where Levinson’s fascination with religion is explored in his new series of portraiture oil painting series.
Gallery A hosts works by Touchstone Gallery artists as they “take landscapes to a new level”, defining them in “unedpected” manners.
Did we mention there’s going to be jazz by Ethan Foote and Simone Baron as well as a Mimosa Bar, Russian Iced Tea and… beignets (yep — there’s my French nod) by Acadiana Restaurant.
The event is free and open to the public.
Monopoly on the Mall
