About Empirical Spirits:
With backgrounds as chefs, Lars and Mark Emil, both noma alums, craft spirits using fermented goods like koji, kombucha, and freeze-dried gooseberries when producing the spirits of Empirical Spirits. The men refer to them as “freeform spirits”, meaning that they don’t belong to an established category such as gin, vodka, or whiskey. Their approach to spirit-making allows for cocktailers and party hosts to use flavor as a starting point, rather than a category, when concocting drinks. Join us as we learn about their process and flavor profiles. Mark Emil and Lars will not be present.
Pour your own candle, perfect as we head into the most hygge time of year across the Nordic countries. We will provide locally-fired ceramic vessels from one of our favorite, local ceramics companies, as well as wax, wicks, and essential oils.
Sip on house-made rose hip kombucha while you learn the art of candle making. Workshop limited to 15 people. Register here.

From a studio space in Oakland, CA, Leah Tumerman carves out narrative scenes on canvas, taking cues from intuitively applied under-paintings. Working predominately with highly pigmented acrylics, Leah watches for the emergence of figurative subject matter and then edits, often utilizing drawing materials, towards an oblique finish. She revels in the implied relationship between forms based on physical posture and placement alone. Using playful symbolism and a touch of make believe, the finishing details speak to notions of sisterhood and communalism, but also whisper of loneliness. Leah explores womanhood striving to create scenarios of connection and inclusion. She riffs on the notion of inclusion itself, employing situations towards a poetic understanding of intersectionality.
In Leisure, Leah ponders the connection between 'free time' and privilege. The work examines unavoidable hustle, pause as necessity, pause as statement/rejection, and a vulnerable desire for belonging throughout. Join us for an opening reception on January 12, 2018 from 6-8pm.
Delightful + thoughtful refreshments provided.
Join us for an evening exploring functional nutrition and autoimmune conditions featuring panelists Leandra Rouse of Le'Ola Wellness and naturopath Dr. Jenny Mann, ND, with moderation by Michelle Pusateri of Nana Joes.

Spend an evening with Lauren Kaneko-Jones, seasonal wellness educator and licensed acupuncturist to get hands on learning on how to support yourself through this season.
