Cheers To Art

Twice a month, Wednesdays or Thursdays at 6:00 p.m.

Looking for a creative and fun activity? Look No further.

The lovely and talented, Jackie Gianico guides you through an acrylic painting created by you! Lots of great humor and guidance throughout the class 🙂

Take home your very own art after the class! We supply all of the brushes, paints, and canvases. All we need is you!

This is a great opportunity for friends, family, teammates, and co-workers to share an activity and be creative!


Pre-register by emailing or just walk in that night!

$10 for pre-registrants and $12 for walk-ins.

FUNDRAISER nights are $15 for everyone.

Drink Specials

Full Menu available, as well as our finger food selections!
