Have you ever wanted to experience a night in France? Well this Sunday you can! Enjoy a French film, French wine, French food, and mini conference at The Art House Cinema.
The film, “Ce Qui Nous Lie / Back to Burgundy” (2017) is a drama/comedy of three siblings from Burgundy reuniting at their family’s estate and vineyard after their father’s death. In the film you’ll learn about the wine-making process and see the gorgeous Burgundy countryside. (Note: film is in French with English subtitles.)

#2 St. Paddy’s Murder Mystery with GoUnite at Bar MT
It’s a “whodunit” game at its best and a fun way to unite with old and new friends and enjoy an evening out.
At this participatory Murder-Mystery Dinner Party you will get to choose beforehand between being an interactive character - watch out, you may end up being the murderer! - or a more reserved character - whichever suits your preference. You’ll be given clue cards to prompt you with specific instructions on what to say and how to act to help your fellow attendees solve the mystery. If you go, I wish you the luck of the Irish.
