Wine Tasting at
Moore Brothers Wine Company

We had hoped that with the official start of spring we would get at least decent weather for our March 26 Tinker Wine Tasting event.

At the memorial held in June at an East Village gallery to honor and celebrate her life, much more than her art was on display: some people spoke about […]
