      The arts are a way to tantalize the senses and this event is sure to do just that. You will taste 8 different wines from France, California, South America, Italy, Australia and Spain. Each wine will be paired with an artfully prepared tapa to bring out the flavors of both the wine and the food. While these complex flavors entice your senses, beautiful live background music will float through the air, bringing your experience to another level.

      Your senses will feast on the flavors, smells, sounds and sights…

      $5 at the door

      All of us have stories and many of us enjoy sharing them, while others enjoy listening. Sometimes we struggle with shyness or even feeling like nobody wants to hear our story. Others may have stories they want to share beyond their circle of friends and family, but don’t know where. Our Storytelling Open Mic at idiomART is the perfect venue for you!

      All levels and ages are welcome. All storytellers and listeners welcome.
