The month of March is a gorgeous time to visit Napa – not too cold, not too rainy, and not too warm. It doesn’t matter if you live locally or are visiting for a weekend, there are plenty of things for you to see and enjoy throughout the area. Here are a handful for you to consider.
Alton Brown Live! Edible Inevitable Tour
You know you want to see him! Food lovers will be excited to see Alton Brown at the Uptown Theatre Napa on March 19th at 8pm. Tickets range from $70 to $150 and the $150 tickets include a Meet and Greet event at 6pm as well as an autographed photo. Then there is, of course, the two-hour combination of food, fun, and comedy.
Conductor Matt Butler has been leading the Everyone Orchestra since 2001. This isn’t your traditional orchestra. It’s made up of a series of well-known musicians who have spent a great deal of time in a wide variety of rock bands. The end result? An energizing experience you won’t soon forget. See them on March 26th at the City Winery Napa. Tickets range from $25 – $35, making this an affordable night out.
Dinner Music Series in the City Winery Restaurant with: Mads Tolling
Head on over to the City Winery Napa (again) on March 27th at 7pm to check out the Danish-American violinist and violist, Mads Tolling. The Grammy Award winning composer is part of the Turtle Island Quartet, the Stanley Clarke’s band, and his own solo project known as the Mads Tolling Quartet. And to sweeten the deal? This event is FREE.
Watercolors for Complete Beginners
Ready to explore your artistic side? Napa Valley Art Supplies is presenting a two-day watercolor class for beginners on March 28th and 29th (10:30am until 4:30pm each day). Your registration cost includes instruction, concepts, and all of the supplies you’ll need to make practice sheets. You’ll also get a reference book to take home and you should, by the end of the class, have a small and regular-sized watercolor using the techniques you’ve learned.
Think outside the box and enjoy some of what Napa has to offer every month. It’s not all about wine and food. Ask your Napa hotel concierge if you’d like more information about area events and out-of-the-box places to visit.
