On Saturday, February 28, Pinot’s Palette of Brandon will be celebrating its one year of business in the community. To celebrate, Pinot’s will be hosting an Anniversary Party paint night featuring the painting “Japanese Moon Garden,” which was the Brandon location of Pinot’s Palette’s first painting class a year ago.
There will be prizes, goodie bags and special treats for all those who attend. The class costs $45 per painter, and will take place from 7-10 p.m.
“We are thrilled about celebrating our first anniversary with Pinot’s,” said co-owner Beverly Walker. “We have exceeded our first year goals. The Brandon area has welcomed us with open arms, and we are so excited to celebrate with the community and we look forward to many more years.”
Pinot’s Palette’s “Paint. Drink. Have Fun.” motto has struck a chord with the Brandon community. There are paintings offered almost every night of the week as well as nights reserved for group parties. Group parties can be held in the Gasparilla Room, which seats up to 18 painters with a minimum of 10, or they can be held in the Main Room, which is available for 19 or more painters. Pinot’s also hosts corporate work parties and team building events.
Pinot’s will provide the paint, canvases, aprons and music. It also has a fully stocked bar with wine, beer, soft drinks and coffee that is available to purchase. Painters can choose to bring food or appetizers; plates and plastic ware will be provided.
Wednesdays are Open Studio days for those who have ever wanted to paint but don’t have the supplies or don’t want to make a mess. The studio is open to all painters, beginners and professionals, for just $15.
Saturday mornings, Pinot’s offers Mimosa Morning classes from 10 a.m.-12 Noon where the first mimosa is free.
Classes are $35 for two hours, and $45 for three hours. Pinot’s Palette is located at 2086 Badlands Dr. in Brandon.
