Bourbon Balls and Much Much More
I just whipped up a batch of bourbon balls for tonight's Great Spokane Art Party. You grind up some pecans and Nilla Wafers, stir in some confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, and a healthy dose of Jim Beam, roll the mixture up into balls which you in turn roll in chopped pecans ... and then you pop one in your your mouth! A grown-up delectable sweet-tooth satisfying, boozy morsel.
And that's just what I'm bringing to the party (a batch of about 75, first come first served!). But we have a whole army of folks bringing platter after platter of even more delectable goodies, both sweet and savory. Not to mention wine pouring forth like the spring run-off.
And then you have the artsy-fartsy activities: 16 different artists and artisans set up to guide you through a painting, collaging, sculpting, assembling, compiling, creating, and confabulational creative smorgy for the right side of your brain. And let's be honest, that poor right side has been chained up like a long neglected dog that needs to go for a run.
So come on down to the Community Building tonight at 7pm and have some fun while supporting Blueprints for Learning and early childhood education in Spokane. $50 per ticket or $80 for a pair. See you there!
