Grown-up Dinner Party
Hosted by Heidi Steiner & Dan Weiss
Saturday, April 25th @ 7pm, $40/person
Appetizers, adult beverages and (hopefully) witty banter will start the evening off right. Following, there will be a leisurely dinner where nothing resembling child-friendly food will be served.

Glass Marble Magnets
Hosted by the Hepburn and Montemar-Garcia Families
Saturday, August 1 @ 2pm - 4:30pm
Create a beautiful set of 5 super-strong glass marble magnets that you can use on a fridge to proudly display your child's outstanding schoolwork and artwork (or reminders to do their chores already). Though not required, feel free to bring an old magazine or catalog that you can use as part of your magnets' design (or just use the ones that we'll have on hand). All materials will be provided. Snacks and alcoholic beverages will also be served. The karaoke may also be fired up but is completely optional, and has nothing to do with magnets. Couples welcome!
