It's a LATE NIGHT HUMMUS HANG. What? Yup. Our gal Katie Barfield will be popping up with her super-secret but totally delicious hummus, homemade breads, and hummus-y accouterments.

It doesn't happen often, but when it does, best be prepared. One of our most beloved natural wine importers, Louis/Dressner Selections will be rolling through town with a wild band of their winegrowers from Europe. Jules Dressner will be spinning vinyl with Scott Frank (@bowampersandarrow), and we'll have a grip of tasty wines open. It'll be a not-to-miss party with a bunch of great farmers. (is that a thing? It is now.)
