Our Wine Arounds are held monthly at restaurants and pubs throughout the Greater Lansing Region and offer an opportunity for creative conversation around the arts. These are casual gatherings that are open to the public. This month's Wine Around will be held at EagleMonk Pub and Brewery. We invite everyone to join us. At the Creative Exchange, you told us you wanted to meet with other artists and make things happen. So at this Wine Around, we'd like to get that conversation started. What do these gatherings look like to you, and how can you make them happen? This is a no-host event. Please visit https://www.eaglemonkbrewing.com/ for menu and pricing.
