Drop off the kiddos at Antsy Nancy and take yourself on a date night! Your kids will learn the wonderful Chinese tradition of making homemade dumplings — just in time for Chinese New Year. The dumplings will be paired with steamed white rice, edamame, and orange chicken and eaten (successfully?) with chopsticks.
After dinner, it’s time for popcorn and treats while we enjoy watching Disney’s animated film, Mulan.
Cost: $75. Register here.
Join Ben Forbes and his team as they teach their first-ever whole beef butchery class! All students will take home a box of beef and enjoy wine and charcuterie during the experience.
Swirl, sip, and sample your way into the week. In this workshop, you'll sip on five soon-to-be-released Sand-Reckoner wines while customizing and snacking on your charcuterie board.
You’ll taste five Sand-Reckoner varieties: A white, rosé, and three reds. Humble Board’s owner Emili Krzyzanowski will guide you on how to pair the meats, cheeses, condiments, fruits, and sweets to create divine flavor combinations and style your board so it’s beautifully put together; you’ll take home whatever is left.
Cost: $75. Purchase your ticket here.
