A Creative Art STUDIO plans Double the Fun this Weekend

Birthday cakeHappy Birthday A Creative Art STUDIO.  They are celebrating their 4 year anniversary with a make up First Friday Denton and a rescheduled 2nd Annual Festivus on Saturday.  This year on December 13th First Friday Denton collides with the Wassailfest, an event put on my participating merchants located in Denton’s downtown area.  Be sure and stop by the studio to try their Wassail and celebrate their birthday.  Kristie Hunger is the featured artist of the month and several other artists will be on hand with a special selection of unique art gifts just in time for holiday shopping.  The 2nd annual A Creative Art STUDIO Festivus starts Saturday, Dec 14, from 10 – 7 pm.  Come shop, celebrate life.   Music starts at 1 pm.    Enjoy Birthday cake, cookies and hot chocolate while you meet some of the artists that make the art that you love.  For a music schedule or additional information, be sure and check out their FACEBOOK.

Mother Nature sends North Texas her season’s greetings, and when Mother Nature talks, we must listen! First Friday Denton, the oldest ongoing retail event in 21st Century Denton, Texas, will be rescheduled for Friday December 13, 2013 – 12/13/13 almost too much luck to ignore for one date. This is the first time ever FFD has been rescheduled.

By then there will be plenty of folks champing at the bit to get out and partake in all the festivities planned for next Friday, and I am confident the businesses that participate will have even bigger plans for the 13th. than they would have had today.

This Thursday and Friday evenings, from 6:00-8:00pm our wine tasting will feature our December Gold and Platinum Wine Club Wines.

This is a progressive tasting: each dollar grouping up is a $5 charge. So you can taste the three for $5, five for $10 or all six for $15

Group 1: The three gold level wines of the month ($15-$18 wines).
Group 2: The two platinum level wines of the month ($30-$40 wines)
Group 3: The platinum upper level red wine of the month ($60-$75)

These wines will also be available as flights from 6pm Thursday until close on Saturday

As you know they are predicting ice for this weekend and the Lighting Festival is on Friday. If the weather is bad enough to cancel the festival we will repeat this tasting next week so everyone will have a chance to try this month’s selections. Watch our Facebook page for updates. Upcoming tastings this month include bubbles and ports.

We have changed four of our “by the glass” selections- Brian Graham’s Ramian Roussanne $11/glass, Marquis de Chasse Blanc $8.5/glass, Caricature Red Blend $8.5/glass and Pali “Alphabets” Pinot Noir $14/glass are all now available.

Wine, cigars and gift cards all make great stocking stuffers and office gifts. Be sure to include Vigne on your list of places to shop for Christmas.

A couple of December specials are Serengeti cream based wine cocktail on sale for $16.63 and Obsidian Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon has a special of 3 for $77.

Our “Last Bottle Sale”, discounts 20-50% off, has a few selections left and we add one or two new wines each week.
