By KPass | Depot District

Nov 02

Here are two events, falling before and after election day, that may just take the edge off all the drama of this election season.  Pick one or attend both –depending on how stressed out you’ve been.  A fabulous way to relax and support local groups and the great work they do!


6th Annual Beer Bourbon & Wine Tasting

Saturday, November 5 2016 from 6-9 p.m., you can enjoy beer, bourbon and wine tasting at the Richmond Hoopsters fundraiser at Little Sheba’s and Zini’s Place.

For just $20 you will get all the drinks you care to sample and all the food you care to eat! There will be the “famous” silent auction with sports autographed items, bar ware, a gift basket from Warm Glow, and a gift basket from Sunking.

Relax, kick off  your shoes (figuratively speaking) and forget the cares of the world….
