Sherry Week is back, and while the bar still may not be open, we have plenty of ways to celebrate – from your own sherry house party, to an in person Sherry Speed Learning class that happens to involve a vending machine (and it’s not the Pix-O-Matic!)
Sherry Speed Learning
with the Gastro Obscura Roaming Vending Machine
Short on time? Have no patience? Love obscure random food and drink? Well then the 8 minute Introduction to Sherry class is just for you! As part of the book release of Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer’s Guide, their team has created “The World’s Most Unusual Vending Machine”, and it’s coming to Portland! Official Sherry Educator, Bar Vivant Owner, and vending machine enthusiast, Cheryl Wakerhauser, will be on site to school you on sherry in just 8 minutes and demo her favorite wine gadgets, such as the venencia, porron, escanciador, and, being a lover of champagne, the saber! Co-author Cecily Wong will be on-site for a meet-and-greet from 2:00 – 5:00pm, along with a special fruit and vegetable synth performance (for real).
Saturday, November 13; 2:00 – 5:00pm
Portland Art Museum’s Sculpture Garden
1219 SW Park Ave, Portland, OR 97205
