Come join us for an evening of fun with Beer & Blooms - A Men’s Only Floral design class. Yep you read that correctly. We came up with the idea after hearing that Portland ranked last in a survey on which is America’s ’Manliest’ city! Obviously it was not a very accurate survey.
So seeing as how we can’t get any less manly, it’s time to embrace your inner ‘Gentle’man and join us for this one of a kind class. (Hey, you never know when it may come in handy? Valentine's Day is just around the corner!)
