Sip on wine while learning life-saving skills at The Cheese Cottage’s Pinot Noir and CPR event on Saturday, April 27.
Learn about the history, future and current activities of Spanish Fort’s Prodisee Pantry at its Fill the Plate event. It takes place Thursday, April 25 at 11:30 a.m. in its 9315 Spanish Fort Blvd. location.
Last year 13,910 families utilized the pantry for food, which included 30,906 individuals, 795 of whom were visiting for the first time. Visitors were also given access to 16 on-site supportive programs and professionals, including local employers, volunteer lawyers, veterans services, the Drug Education Council, healthcare specialists and more.
Fill the Plate will feature guest speaker Deann Servos, one of three women who founded the pantry in 2003. She will share statistics and the real story of how it all came together. Westminster Village will provide food, and donations are encouraged. Seating is limited, so RSVP at (251) 626-1720 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fairhope Brewing to host Sixth Annual Crawfish Cook Off for ACS
It’s not too early to ready yourself for Fairhope Brewing Company’s Sixth Annual Crawfish Cook Off on Sunday, May 19 — it’s the tastiest of all the Fairhope Brewing events. Nichols Avenue will be slammed with teams firing up mudbugs, so expect a few hundred pounds with a variety of flavors. And you know what goes great with crawfish? Beer, that’s what.
I’ll start with a couple of pints of I Drink Therefore I Ambers until I’m full. At that point I’ll switch to the lighter Cheap Sunglasses, but you may have a different plan. Celebrity judges will be on hand to determine a trophy winner. The event begins at 2 p.m., with a winner crowned at 5 p.m. You can help determine the winner by showing up to vote. I’ll be seeing you there, for sure. Proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.
Pinot Noir and CPR at Cheese Cottage
The Cheese Cottage at 650 St. Louis St. is partnering with the University of South Alabama’s Department of Emergency Medical Services for Pinot Noir and CPR on Saturday, April 27 from 2-6 p.m. This is a fun and free way to learn hands-on adult and child CPR, defibrillator operation and adult and child choking response.
How does this work? Drop by the Cheese Cottage anytime between those hours and instructors will be on hand to teach you the emergency techniques that may help you save a life someday. After you receive your certification, grab a glass of the shop’s favorite pinot noir or rosé for a penny — yes, one cent! — to celebrate your new skills. The certification process should take only 20 to 30 minutes. Draining a glass of pinot noir usually takes substantially less time.
Unrelated, I am thinking about teaching a class to improve your wine-drinking skills. CPR is usually not necessary. Be sure and visit the Cheese Cottage on social media to learn more about this and the shop’s other wonderful events.
