AIGA Charlotte Celebrates the Revival of a Centuries Old Tradition
We're only ONE WEEK out from Letterpress Fest! Over the course of four days (Feb. 13-16), AIGA Charlotte is bringing together nationally renowned speakers to give lectures, participate in panel discussions and run hands-on workshops on an old-fashioned tradition that’s never gone out of style – the art of letterpress.
Though the workshops sold out in 5 minutes, a wide range of additional events are planned for Letterpress Fest, including:
Not Made in China will be peddling wares at the first ever Queen City Brewers Festival. Come imbibe with us!
The Queen City Brewers Festival is on Tap. Premiering at the Neighborhood Theatre (511 E. 36th Street, Charlotte, NC, 28205), on Saturday, February 4, 2012, QCBF is exclusive to the Charlotte-area breweries that are putting the Queen City on the craft beer map. The event will feature a diverse selection of beer styles and flavors to taste and learn about from official brewery representatives.
With Charlotte’s craft beer market exploding in recent years, the goal of this event is to spotlight the city’s emerging craft breweries while bringing awareness to the event’s nonprofit host, Partners for Parks, a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation that seeks to promote and enhance parks, recreation and open space in neighborhoods throughout Mecklenburg County and the surrounding area.
It's almost time for my absolute FAVORITE show of the year... The Big Crafty! It's only 2 and a half weeks away - and I've got a ton of buttons to press. Make the trip to Downtown Asheville's Pack Place and enjoy arts, crafts, music and FREE BEER from 12pm-6pm on Sunday, December 4th. The event is free and open to the public. Oh, and did I mention there's FREE BEER?
