*This is a special class designed to honor and please our Mom’s.  Taught by artist Dave Campbell.*

A beautifully balanced wine glass isn’t just a vessel for swirling and sipping—it’s a canvas for tasting creativity. During this two-hour informal event, you will laugh and socialize as you paint a wine glass to take home – all while being educated about and sipping on several hand crafted wines. During class we encourages creativity and laughter as you decorate what will become your favorite wine glass with colorful patterns and intricate designs.  Wine Shoe supplies everything- the wine, the glass, the paint and the painting supplies. You bring the creativity.

Class starts at 3 p.m. with some bubbly wine and salty snacks, and ends at 5 p.m. Park in their free parking garage and enter through the courtyard door. $50 per person.

No Mas! is getting ready for their 10th Annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, on Thursday, May 5th, 2016. Free Admission! The Cinco de Mayo celebration sprawls into the No Mas! parking lot, with even more food, beverages, and sounds to get the Fiesta started! Tell your friends!

The diverse crowd has always been supportive of the event and the Castleberry Hill neighborhood. Like years past, this event also benefits the neighborhood, Castleberry Hill, which provides volunteers; a portion of the proceeds goes towards the community. The benefit helps support the monthly Castleberry Hill 2nd Friday Art Stroll, featuring the more than a dozen art galleries throughout the historic neighborhood. No Mas! hosts many large groups and events in their 350 seat Cantina and sprawling Mexican oasis – walking distance to the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium and soon-to-be-erected Hard Rock Hotel.

The call is out for neighborhood volunteers to assist during the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. Duties may include: greeting guests, checking id’s, crowd control, or hosting. You will receive a custom designed t-shirt, $25 GIft Certificate and other takeaways as a thank you.   Contact info@nomascantina.com if you are interested, with ideal time available.
