We’re leaning into our fall basic b with a three week series focusing on our favorite fall flavors: pumpkins (11/12), apples (11/19), and herbs (11/26). BYO-Uggs.

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the beverage director at Proof into letting her join their team in 2017. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. She’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts — specifically shrubs.

We’re leaning into our fall basic b with a three week series focusing on our favorite fall flavors: pumpkins (11/12), apples (11/19), and herbs (11/26). BYO-Uggs.

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the beverage director at Proof into letting her join their team in 2017. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. She’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts — specifically shrubs.

About the Artists: Travis & Jill are jitterbugs from Central Iowa who LOVE swing and the essence of the era in which it was born. They met in 2008, began dancing together shortly after, and have been cuttin’ a rug ever since. They specialize in Lindy Hop, East Coast, Charleston, Solo Jazz, Shag & Aerials. Travis & Jill enjoy dancing BIG and creating new dance moves each time they take to the floor.

The Belgardes compete occasionally in the Midwest. Most recently, they placed 2nd in the Showcase Competition and 2nd in the Fast Dance Battle Contest at Heartland Swing Festival (April 2017). Travis & Jill have been ambassadors of swing in Central Iowa by performing and teaching new dancers in Des Moines. They look forward to teaching new dancers and expanding the population of jitterbugs in the Midwest!

It doesn’t matter if you love the holidays or hate being cooped up with your family, these drinks will get you feeling some type of way. 

Hot Drinks (12/5): mulled wine, cider, toddies — if its cozy, you’ll learn a good recipe and then we’ll spike it as needed. 

Decadent (12/12): sounds better than calling it a “creamy class.” We’re making flips, eggnog, well dressed russians and, of course, drinking us some Bailey’s. The drinks will be rich, but never cloyingly sweet. 

Sparkling (12/19): if we’re going to toast the Champagne of Beers at BASH on NYE (a beautiful tradition), we’re going to have to get our fill of bubbly beforehand. 

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the beverage director at Proof into letting her join their team in 2017. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. She’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts — specifically shrubs.

NOLA Jazz PosterThe NOLA Jazz Bands monthly “New Orleans Jazz Party” occurs every First Friday of the month at “The Basement” many times playing to a packed house.
 
All band members have a common love for the sound and “feel” of both traditional and current New Orleans and roots blues music – real, gutsy, raw, heartfelt, and entertaining. They also find joy in their music and love performing together, having fun, and entertaining their audiences.
 
The NOLA Jazz Band has played alongside a number of well-known traditional jazz and music groups this past year including Davina & the Vagabonds, Sony recording artist trumpet player and singer Bria Skonberg, and Dom Flemons of The Carolina Chocolate Drops.
 
Individual band members have also shared the stage with Vincent Gardner, Maynard Ferguson, Benny Goodman, Kurt Elling, and many other well know jazz artists during their careers. NOLA Jazz Band members have also been inducted into the Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
 
The band had a busy 2016 summer festival schedule playing festivals across the Midwest and Central US, and also played for many private functions across Central Iowa. Appreciative audiences, fellow musicians, promoters and positive word of mouth has created a busy performance schedule and continued demand for their music as they build their reputation in the Midwest, regionally and across the US.
 
To commemorate their first year full year together they released their first album in March, 2016 – NOLA Jazz Band Vol. 1 “Genesis – Live from the ARK”. CD’s are available at live shows, online at iTunes and CD Baby, on their website, as well as streaming on Spotify.

It doesn’t matter if you love the holidays or hate being cooped up with your family, these drinks will get you feeling some type of way. 

Hot Drinks (12/5): mulled wine, cider, toddies — if its cozy, you’ll learn a good recipe and then we’ll spike it as needed. 

Decadent (12/12): sounds better than calling it a “creamy class.” We’re making flips, eggnog, well dressed russians and, of course, drinking us some Bailey’s. The drinks will be rich, but never cloyingly sweet. 

Sparkling (12/19): if we’re going to toast the Champagne of Beers at BASH on NYE (a beautiful tradition), we’re going to have to get our fill of bubbly beforehand. 

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the beverage director at Proof into letting her join their team in 2017. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. She’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts — specifically shrubs.

Then life stepped in. She is a devoted wife and mother of two who stopped dancing to get a job with health insurance. Fourteen years later she realized something was missing. It was then that she found ATS® Belly Dance and fell in love. She has not stopped since and loves to share her passion with others.

Bourbon didn’t come into the world fully formed, it was a long evolutionary process.  We will explore the roots of America’s native spirit, looking briefly at the some of the most important people in the history of the spirit. Once we’ve learned about the history of bourbon, we’ll talk about how bourbon made and who makes it.  Considering the current bourbon boom we’ll also talk about bourbon’s expansion and the role of the craft distiller.

Before we get to actually taste our bourbon, we’ll learn a little bit about reading a bourbon label – what does it mean to be produced, what’s so special about Lawrenceburg, IN, and why is Templeton such a controversial brand? Finally, we get to the most important part of any discussion of bourbon, the tasting!  No opinions are wrong, and all feedback is welcome.  Do you taste caramel? Vanilla?  Or just alcohol?  A fun and informative class, that gives you whiskey at the end is just what the doctor ordered in the midst of Americas bourbon boom!

About the Artist: Michael Kelly is an Iowa native, Army veteran, and self-taught bourbon explorer. Following his first trip to Bourbon country in 2017, in which he toured all the distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Michael’s passion for the history, quality, flavor and people of whiskey continues to grow. Michael has since toured 43 distilleries in 6 states and has an expanding bourbon collection of over 275 different bottles. Among his favorite libations are: Stagg Jr, Weller Antique 107. A former Cyclone, Michael lives in Des Moines with his lovely and patient wife Vanessa and super-dog, Kal-El.

It doesn’t matter if you love the holidays or hate being cooped up with your family, these drinks will get you feeling some type of way. 

Hot Drinks (12/5): mulled wine, cider, toddies — if its cozy, you’ll learn a good recipe and then we’ll spike it as needed. 

Decadent (12/12): sounds better than calling it a “creamy class.” We’re making flips, eggnog, well dressed russians and, of course, drinking us some Bailey’s. The drinks will be rich, but never cloyingly sweet. 

Sparkling (12/19): if we’re going to toast the Champagne of Beers at BASH on NYE (a beautiful tradition), we’re going to have to get our fill of bubbly beforehand. 

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the beverage director at Proof into letting her join their team in 2017. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. She’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts — specifically shrubs.

The Lion in Winter

Sibling rivalry, adultery, and dungeons – “The Lion in Winter” is a modern-day classic. Comedic in tone, dramatic in action – the play tells the story of Henry the Second, his brilliant queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, and their scheming children, who are locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. Playwright James Goldman penned the beloved Oscar-winning screen adaptation.

Gruesome Playground Injuries

Over the course of 30 years, the lives of Kayleen and Doug intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together. The New York Times calls playwright Rajiv Joseph “an artist of original talent.” Variety says “This wondrous strange twohander finds as much humor as horror in the play’s bizarre events.”

Disgraced

Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize, Joseph Jefferson Award, and Obie for best play, “Disgraced” follows Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is white; she’s an artist, creating work influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party for Amir’s colleague and her curator husband, what starts out as a friendly banter escalates into something far more searing and damaging.
