Art on Tap Happy Hour
Rambling House Soda
Wednesday August 24th
The Wild Goose Creative Annual Membership Drive is underway and this year we’re amping it up.
They’re having a little party for supporters – members and anyone else interested in learning more about what they do. Join them at Rambling House on Wednesday, August 24th from 5:30 pm to 8 pm, with music starting at 6:30 pm.
Rambling House will be tapping several beers from Commonhouse Ales for the event. It’s a new local brand from an old local hand. Owner Lenny Kolada, also owner of the Smokehouse Brewing Co., started Commonhouse Ales and is working to become a B-Corporation, one of the first breweries to seek the designation, which would direct a portion of sales toward local nonprofit causes.
Connect with other Wild Goose members, find out more about Wild Goose membership and grab a beer from Common House Ales or a soda from Rambling House Soda. They have a surprise or two up they sleeves that you don’t want to miss.
Bring your friends!

Tacocat: Rest in Pizza Party
Friday August 27th
Sadly, the Tacocat Co-op is at an end and the tenants will be moving to other studios throughout the city. The building is set to be demolished to make a tree lined street in Grandview Yard. What better way to celebrate a great three years than having a pizza party! There will be music, artists will have work on sale (so we don’t have to move it) and people will have a chance to see the buildings guts after tenants start tearing it apart to move to their new studios. Stay tuned for where those great artists end up…I will try to make sure that you can connect with each of them in their new abodes!!
