Point Loma’s The Wine Pub hails the onset of the Christmas season with its Winter WINEderland by offering arts, crafts, fine wine and scrumptious cuisine 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4. Hosting spirits and artistic ingenuity on its dog-friendly, holiday-festive outdoor patio, guests may choose between a painting class led by ArtBeat San Diego’s founder, creative director, artist Kristel Boe, or a succulent box designing class led by Sweet DIGYs owner-craftswoman Lindsey Tiers.

Boe will lead a three-hour painting workshop that highlights a tropical winter wonderland complete with Christmas lights adorning palm trees and a sand-made snowman enjoying the beach.

“Artists will paint a tropical painting that kick-starts the Christmas season San Diego style,” says Boe. “San Diego is blessed with perfect beach days so we’re going celebrate this good fortune and create a holiday scene that represents our town.”

ArtBeat San Diego is no stranger to The Wine Pub as the ‘perfect’ place for creativity. “Working with The Wine Pub is like visiting the The Wine Pub,” explains Boe. “The warm and inviting atmosphere is like working from home. Our partnership is valuable because our students feel at home, which allows them to expand on their creativity. Public spaces can make you feel vulnerable and creativity requires comfort.”

Tiers will lead a succulent class showcasing the how-to of assembling a custom, Christmas-themed, decorative box filled with drought-tolerant plants.

“If you’ve been in California for more than a minute, you know that succulents are the craze,” says Tiers. “Succulents are unique, colorful and tolerant to anyone who lacks a green thumb. They spice up any abode without the hassle of maintenance. We’re excited to add our holiday flare!”

Tiers spoke highly of The Wine Pub’s team. “I love working with The Wine Pub,” she continues. “What a great way to spend your time; hang out with your friends, enjoy a glass of wine and great snacks while making great succulent arrangements that last for months, maybe even years.”

“Believe it: wine and art make the perfect combination,” says Sandy Hanshaw, owner of The Wine Pub. “The two provide a mental escape, allowing you to shut off your mind and enjoy what you’re working on – from intricate artwork to simple succulent potting.”

Noted as the home away from home for local residents, The Wine Pub offers an extraordinary selection of handpicked wine and craft beer. Space is limited and pre-registration is suggested for the Winter WINEderland. Advanced sign-up is less expensive with an early bird discount offering. All materials, including aprons and gardening gloves, will be supplied. All levels welcome. Adults only. Tickets should be purchased separately based on the chosen class.

“The Wine Pub loves hosting events that offer something for everyone,” concludes Hanshaw. “As the holidays are so often hectic, Winter WINEderland can be a gift to yourself. Relax and enjoy this mini-getaway. The Wine Pub offers a 50 percent discount on all wines every Sunday which can only add synergy to creativity!”
