Burnt Bridge Cellars has decided to start celebrating Independence Day early, and will be offering glass pour specials all weekend long. Drop by on from 4 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 28 (and every Thursday) for Thursday Happy Hour when you can enjoy a glass of your favorite, locally made artisan wines. If you can’t make it to the tasting room on Thursday, come by from 4 to 9 p.m. on Friday, when you can taste a selection of award-winning wines for Winemaker’s Happy Hour. Burnt Bridge will be offering glass pours and bottle sales only, including specially priced pours. You can also visit Burnt Bridge on Saturday and Sunday, July 1 and 2, for tasting flights, glass pours and bottle sales. They are open Saturdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m.
While you’re there, check out Sue Clancy’s art exhibit, “Dogs in the Winery” which will be on display through the month of July. Her recent whimsical dog portraits are inspired by local restaurants, coffee shops, wineries, breweries, events at the Kiggins Theatre, and other places where Clancy creates imaginary dog characters that describe, visually, her pleasant real-life experiences. Clancy is a fine artist represented locally by Caplan Art Designs in Portland Oregon. Her art has been in gallery exhibits and featured in public and private collections around the world. She is the artist and author of—most recently—the beguiling art book, “Dogs by Sue Clancy.” You can see more about her life and work at www.sueclancy.com.
