In the coming weeks we will be adding an interactive calendar and several events that you won't want to miss. Here is just a taste of what we have planned:
Live Music on weekends - While we can't promise we'll have Johnny Mercer playing at the piano, we will be hosting a rotation of local musicians and singers who cater to the relaxed atmosphere we have here at 208. You can expect to hear a broad mix of works from the Cole Porter and Edith Piaf era of the 1920s up through present day.
Monthly Artist Receptions - each month we will host a local artist for a special reception where they can display the best of their work and mingle with guests and visitors. This is our way of helping support local artists.
Wine Tasting Experience - This two-hour experience is meant to be more than a traditional wine-101 seminar, it's a fun and interactive introduction to the amazing world of wine without the snobbery. Designed for people who enjoy wine but would like to learn how to not be intimidated when you walk down the wine aisle at the grocery store or peruse the wine list at a nice restaurant. No 'glassholes' allowed!
Charity Events - At 208 we believe in giving back to the community that supports us. Each month we will host a special event to benefit a local charity.
Wine & Cheese Lunch - This will be a very popular event at 208. On Saturdays beginning in August we will host special Wine and Cheese lunches that will feature amazing pairings with a little education thrown in for good measure.
Charcuterie Making Classes - Forget 'paint and sip', we are partnering with several local artisans to host these fun events that will teach you how to make charcuterie boards that are both beautiful and mouth watering.
Winemaker hosted tastings - From time to time we get the privilege of hosting our favorite people in the wine world. These are the people who work the harvests in the fields, transfer the fruit, oversee the fermentation and basically do all of the backbreaking work that creates this amazing drink we all know and love. These are great opportunities to share great wines with the actual people who made them.
