Space is limited: Be sure to RSVP below so you don't miss out on the Fourth Annual Sojourner Tours Beaujolais Nouveau Potluck .
2017 Sojouner Tours' Fourth ANNUAL BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU POTLUCK
Every year on the Third Thursday of November, the new wines from the current year's harvest are released to the public to taste for the first time. In France, these young unpretentious wines are a wonderful excuse for a party and Francis and I (the owners of Sojourner Tours) want to continue the tradition here in Texas! This is your opportunity to get away and enjoy the bucolic setting of central Texas' rolling hills alongside a gurgling creek, sip wine, listen to music and just relax in a convivial atmosphere of Red Bird Farm.
THIS IS A FREE POTLUCK (We provide the entertainment, you provide the food & drinks)...
JUST BRING A BOTTLE OF 2017 BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU AND SOME FOOD TO SHARE: MAKE YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE FOR THE PARTY AND BRING A DRIED OR CANNED GOOD TO DONATE TO THE CAPITAL AREA FOOD BANK.
Date: Saturday Nov. 18 4:30-9:30
4:30 Sunset & Bubbly
Come before the sun sets to enjoy the charm of REDBIRD FARM.
- Play pétanque. Sojourner Tours will bring balls for those who want to play the French lawn game.
- Watch a Retro 1950s-inspired Travel Slide Show while sipping flutes of crèment to celebrate Francis and Lisa's 15th Anniversairy.
5:30-8:30 Potluck, Wine and Music
- Jazz: Austin's Third Coast Trio will be playing "classic improvisational Jazz from the 1950s and 1960s."
- West African Drumming: Drum for Good will liven the evening up when the Jazz band pauses for a break. Their rhythms are sure to energize you, get your hands clapping and your feet tapping.
This year Sojourner Tours and Red Bird Farm are teaming up again to offer you an enjoyable evening in the bucolic undulating countryside so you can enjoy the music played by the Third Coast Trio and Drum for Good while sipping wine in a convivial atmosphere...and it is an evening you can feel good about because it benefits the Capital Area Food Bank.
