Win(e)d Down and Paint Away @ Soon to Open Pinot’s Palette – Harbor Point, Stamford

24 Sep

Update:  Pinot’s Palette will open on December 14!  Use discount code “Neighbor” for 25% off classes to celebrate their first month in business! 

The Harbor Point area of Stamford has grown immensely over the past couple of years, but there’s still so much more on the way.  Yes, there are plans for lots more restaurants and there’s also a great new spot that’s slated to open in the middle of November.  We’re talking about Pinot’s Palette, located at 2200 Atlantic Street, #109.

Pinot’s Palette was started in Houston back in 2009 and will soon have expanded into 24 states, including Connecticut of course.  People sign up for two or three ($35 or $45) hour painting classes and bring along plenty of good wine.  While you sip, you paint…and snack.  As simple as that.  Pinot’s Palette will provide the art supplies and apron, the plates for any treats you bring, and will give you the wine glasses for the good stuff.  In terms of who can attend, they want everybody to feel comfortable…experienced painters or not.  Their slogan is, “Paint.  Drink.  Have Fun,” after all.  Plus, when you’re done painting, you get to take your pièce de résistance home with you.  

While you can set up an appointment for any time that’s available, you can also host private parties, birthday parties, or attend one of their Date Nights or Girls Night Out.  What, no Lumberjacks Wearing Plaid Night Out?  Either way, Pinot’s Palette will be a fun place to go with friends to explore your artistic side and also relax with some great drinks.  November can’t come soon enough!

For more information, you can e-mail Owner Chad Smith or Studio Manager Joanne Christena Amico at stamford@pinotspalette.com.  Also make sure to check the Pinot’s Palette Stamford site for updates.

Wined Down Fridays: Painting and BYOB at The Giggling Pig

20 Mar

Living Social has a great deal going on now at The Giggling Pig in Shelton.  For just $12 (normally $25), you’ll get to take part in a Paint & Sip BYOB painting class.  These fun events where you bring your own bottle are held every Friday from 7-9 pm.  You don’t need to bring any supplies at all, either!  Artist Gail Bell, a landscape painter, will be hosting the class.  If this is something you really love, there’s the option to sign up for the entire month, too.  If you do that, you’ll get $5 off each class.  Quite a nice deal!

If you’re concerned about being a beginner and not knowing how to paint, don’t worry.  Gail will teach you the tricks of the trade.  Plus, think about it.  Everybody will be drinking wine and beer, so if someone appears to be better to you, blame it on drinking too much liquor.  Or, give those people more liquor so that your skills start to match up!  See, it’s a win-win!
