Shopping and Massage - No Woody

Girl's Night Out at Tidal School Vineyards February 4, 2006

Ladies only event featuring shopping experiences from amazing vendors, on site massage therapist, and door prizes.

In other Drumright winery news, the recently announced Woody Guthrie Tribute show has been canceled.

I suspect that the cancellation will be so stress inducing to my wife that she will need shopping and a massage.
