Last Wednesday was a spectacular evening for Art Night on the Bayfront. The weather was great, we had 40 artists showing their work, musicians in 2 different locations and the sunset was art in itself.
This event will continue through the end of the year. The artists have their tents and lighting and are prepared to have their work on display till at least 8PM for both the November and December events.
Don’t forget to join us tomorrow night from 5-8PM inside Jaco’s for Art à la carte where you will have a chance to meet Novembers featured artist…
And sample this months Spirits from…
Tropical fruit, guava and apple aromas. The bold sweet citrus falvours are backed by refreshing acidity and minerality, a characteristic of our coastal vineyards. A versatile food wine to go with most poultry, fish and salad dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Serve chilled.
Distinctive aromas of ripe plum and pepper spices, mouth-filling sweet red-berry flavours and gentle tannins characterize this wine. A touch of Viognier was co-fermented with the Shiraz for the aromatic lift it gives to the wine, which emphasises the berry fruit and spice aromas on the nose. The American oak barrels give a hint of vanilla spice and contribute to the smooth silky tannins. Serve at a cool room temperature.
Well the weather didn’t play nice last month but it will make this months event even better!
We have a great lineup of artists and they are all prepared to have lighting under their tents since it is getting dark a little earlier on us these days. Scott Novota with Strong Street Studio promises to have at least 150 of his glass pumpkins available for you and we know plenty of the other artists will be packed full of items for this season.
As always we will have music, artists, drinks and a beautiful sunset for you to enjoy. It is a little cooler these evenings but that won’t keep Condor Sailing Adventures away. They will have the DareII parked in the marina and will again offer a drawing for a sailing trip.
We will have several locations for you to get a beverage from our great sponsors.
Make sure you join us this Wednesday!
