Bottle & Bottega Offers Kids Events During Spring Break

During the Evanston school spring break, Bottle & Bottega is offering two public kids events where anyone can register and attend.  Here are the links to the two events offered that week:

Kids Painting Event (Ages 7 – 12)  – Tuesday, April 8

Teen Painting Event  (Ages 13 – 17)  – Thursday, April 10

They also offer kids parties on a private event basis for a minimum of 10 children in our studio or a minimum of 7 children if the party is held elsewhere.

Bottle & Bottega is a wine & art party business in Evanston. The wine is BYOB and they supply all of the artist instruction & paint supplies for a unique and fun night out with friends! While they are primarily an adult oriented business (all of their public events are for adults 18 and over), they do offer kids events as well.

Follow the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom—her actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources – including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery.  Running Time:  100 minutes  Rated:  PG

Wreck-It Ralph

Wreck-It Ralph longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix. Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun, Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan — win a medal — but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Vanellope von Schweetz might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy.  Running time:  101 minutes  Rated: PG
