Wine and Cheese Night with Gwenn-Ael Lynn and Laura Shaeffer 7:00 – 9:00 pm We would like to invite you to an evening of Wine and Cheese tasting. However, we do have participatory guidelines: you bring a great bottle of wine, paired with an exquisite cheese. If for whatever reason you are less inclined to wine or cheese, you are welcome to bring an amazing drink and a delicious snack of your own choosing instead. We will call this pair a module. The last guideline is to present your module, in any way you see fit (presentation, lecture, footwork, sonic, meditation, etc…) to the rest of our assembly. This way we can cooperatively build a wine and cheese (a snack and a drink) collection that will benefit our community.
