Speaker Event - Santa Rosa

Speaker Event - Santa Rosa
2pm - Speaker: Michael Lella
"Beneath A Scarlet Sky" is based on factual accounts of a forgotten hero, Pino Lella, who spied against the Germans in World War II.
Our speaker, Michael Lella, is the son of this books main character. As an Italian teenager who was risking his life helping the Catholic underground to safely escort Jews out of Italy, Pino, against his protestations, was convinced by his parents to join the German army for the sake of his own safety. Once he joined, he soon became the driver for the most influential German general in Italy, who directly reported to Hitler & had frequent interfaces with Mussolini. Besides being an epic tale of one young mans incredible courage & resilience during one of historys darkest hours, it is also a beautiful, but tragic love story.

This will become a mini series with Tom Holland, Spider Man. Tickets: $20/Per Person

The House of Yes - Sebastopol

It's Thanksgiving & Marty's arrival home is greatly anticipated by his mother, Mrs. Pascal, his twin sister, Jackie-O & his younger brother, Anthony. He arrives during a hurricane, but worse than the storm is the fact that Marty brings Lesly, his fiancee.
This ruins everything. Marty's engagement is a threat to the well-being of this family & a greater threat to Jackie-O, who has always wanted her brother for herself.

Barrel Tasting Weekends - Sonoma

2 WEEKENDS - March 1-3 & 8-10, 2019.
HOURS: 11am–4pm each day.

Welcome to our Wineries & Lodgings for an exciting weekend of Wine Tasting. A chance to sample wines from the barrel, talk to winemakers & explore the beautiful Alexander, Dry Creek & Russian River Valleys.

Barrel Tasting is not a food pairing or themed event. It’s all about the WINE - many wineries offer “futures” on their Barrel Samples. This is a chance to purchase wine now, often at a discount, then come back to the winery when the wine is bottled, typically 12-18 months from now. Many wines are so limited, buying futures is your only chance to purchase them.

Attendees are encouraged to pack a picnic as most wineries will not have food for this event.
Ticket price includes the opportunity to sample wine from the barrel and in most cases also trying a limited number of current release wines.

Heathen Valley

Romulus Linney's haunting southern epic is set in the 1840s where the action of the play centers on the desire of the Episcopal Bishop of North Carolina to bring the word of God to a valley so remote & untamed that brothers marry sisters & the people live lives of brutal violence and grinding poverty. Accompanied by an ex-convict named Starns & a young orphan boy, Billy, the sometimes overbearing bishop sets about bringing "order and decency" to the valley. Returning to civilization to raise funds, he leaves Starns behind as his deacon & before long Starns, has indeed worked wonders. When the bishop returns he is amazed, but also disturbed that perhaps earthly pleasures are replacing the poverty that is more befitting for beholding the glory of God.
