Not At The Dinner Table.
Friday, Nov 4th, 6:00PM
This edition of THE REMEDY CLUB invites you to talk about systems of exclusion, topics that usually aren’t deemed appropriate at the dinner table. Held four days before this year’s (draining, unsettling) presidential election, this event provides cocktails, conversations, and much needed catharsis.
By listening to personal stories from our panelists (see below) and conversing with each other about uncomfortable but necessary topics, we will take on the challenge of breaking that initial barrier when it comes to the untalkable—starting the conversation.
We will be recording the event for our Hatch the Future podcast so that you can share the conversation with those who couldn’t be in the room. Revisit the podcast episode from our first edition on Power & Access.
Advance tickets are $15. Night-of tickets will be $20 at the door. This event is 21+ and tickets include 1 drink ticket per person.

Proprietor, Abbey Creek Vineyard. He planted the vines, tends to them, harvests the fruit, makes the wine. Bertony’s the heart and soul, the drive that pushes Abbey Creek forward.
Born from Haitian immigrant parents and a transplanted New Yorker, Bertony has found not only his family, but his destiny in Oregon wine country. A physical trainer by trade, Bertony started his wine career like many, somewhat by accident. Noting his in-laws had a small vineyard, he began exploring the potential of making his own wine and gradually launched Abbey Creek Vineyard. Always a student and innovator, Bertony dug in and learned a great deal from neighbors and friends. Abbey Creek Vineyard grew enough in production to warrant it’s own tasting room and winery so Bertony moved his operation into North Plains, Oregon. Today he is literally an earth to glass winemaker. Abbey Creek Vineyard is all Bertony, all his personality, style and grace. Get to know him and you know his wine.
