"Shaken, Stirred and Punched" Mixology Class
Oct

7:00 PM19:00

"Shaken, Stirred and Punched" Mixology Class

Autumn is at its best with backyard bonfires, cozy wool blankets, mugs of hot spiked cider, and wisps of woodsmoke juxtaposed against the crisp air. For this month’s mixology class, we’re exploring how to use (and balance) the flavor of smoke in cocktails. Join Meredith for a demonstration of three different libations featuring nose-tickling peat, toast, smoke, earth, warmth, and spice. While we're at it, you'll learn foolproof techniques for your home bar and get hands-on to practice measuring, mixing, and mastering flavor with steal-the-recipe craft cocktails. 

Tickets are $65 and include heavy appetizers and two cocktails.

AB Community Education: Storytelling Workshop

AB Community Education: Storytelling Workshop

Do you have a story to tell? Lots of people have jumped into the storytelling pond. Storytelling has swept the nation with fans tuning in to The Moth Radio Hour and This American Life on NPR and/or going to local story slams where true stories are told to a live audience. Storytelling brings people together by sharing a moment that may be profoundly personal, hilarious, or transformative. It builds confidence as well as writing and public speaking skills. It can be an effective tool for business owners, marketing and sales professionals. It may help high school students prepare for their college essays. Plus, it’s just fun! In this new 3-part class, participants will learn how to write and tell a 5- to 6-minute true story based on a pre-selected theme. At the final class, attendees will tell their stories and receive feedback. Fugitive Stories monthly showcase will take place immediately after this class in The Gallery at Villageworks. Class members receive free admission and one member may be selected to tell his or her story! Open to all ages 13 and up. 

Rose Saia is a Moth winner, a WGBH & Massmouth storyteller and co-producer of Fugitive Stories in West Acton. Learn more about Fugitive Stories and Rose at www.fugitiveproductions.com/stories.
