It’s Dumpling and Natty Wine Time! @thestudy_winebar
Sunday, June 2 2-4 p.m.

We had so much fun at our Pickle Party with @uhmeeleeah last month that we wanted to host another event. This time, we’re having a Build Your Own Dumpling Bar! We’ll have a buffet with an assortment of prepped proteins, veggies, seasonings, and sauces for you to customize your own filling. Once you’ve created your culinary masterpiece, gather around the table, and @uhmeeleeah will demonstrate folding techniques. We’ll have pans going to cook the dumplings we make since the best part of communal dumpling-making is eating them all together! $65 includes 12 dumplings and 2 glasses of wine per person
Please feel free to bring your own mixing bowl, and we’ll wash it for you after you have made your dumplings. Space is limited- DM us to reserve your spot!
