Brushes and Bottles
Sebastian Corriere and Sarah Jones put final touches on their paintings during a Brushes and Bottles event at Total Wine

By Dinkinish O'Connor

Don’t you hate it when you go to an amazing art exhibit only to be served frost bitten chardonnay or sunburned merlot?

It’s an injustice far too grave for words, and that’s why the mission of Brushes and Bottles is so exciting. In the company’s wine tastings, you become the painter and the wine critic.

Join Founder Annette Watkins at North Miami’s Total Wine & More for an evening of sipping wines and stroking canvases. For $35 in advance and $40 at the door, Watkins provides all the essentials - canvases, paints and brushes, and Total Wine supplies the wine, which I hear will boast a Halloween theme.

And it doesn’t matter if you’ve never stroked a canvas, Watkins escorts students through a step-by-step process while delicious wines waltz through your veins. And don’t forget to wear disposable clothing (just in case you feel like trick or treating afterwards).
