The Farm Dinner | Family Style Farm-to-Table Dinner *SOLD OUT*

The Farm Dinner was dreamt up so members of our community could sit down and share a meal with the farmer who grew the food that made their meal; to have a delicious, welcoming way for people to know and care about where their food comes from and what nourishes us as a community.

Our farmers and vendors will not only be sharing their delicious ingredients but their stories and ways you can find or support them after you part for the evening. Listen to the fun folk sounds of Northsoul while you get to know our farmers and enjoy their delicious dinner!

Cellar District is known for revolutionizing the way people experience dining out. They take pride in their ability to discover some unique ways to combine local, fresh ingredients and the dining experience as a whole. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with them to to bring this experience to our community.

Exit, Pursued By A Bear | Impact Theatre Co.
Jan 19 @ 7:30 pm – Jan 22 @ 4:00 pm

Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional—and actual—cheerleader), a stripper named Sweetheart, and the words of William Shakespeare, she tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenacts scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are both freed from their past in this smart, wonderfully dark yet hopeful revenge comedy.
