Pinot’s Palette

Pinot's Palette

Swirl, paint and sip to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research at the grand opening of Pinot’s Palette in Ghent this Thursday July 14 at 7 p.m.

I attended the soft opening last week with some friends and had an absolute blast.  It was so much more than a painting party.  The instructors are all local artists and they certainly love to entertain. The vibe was super fun. At one point of the evening, we had an impromptu karaoke party. We sang, we danced, we painted! And the best part, whether you dabble in painting or haven’t picked up a paint brush since elementary school – you too can create a masterpiece!

My masterpiece! Well, sort of!

Pinot’s Palette is located at 240 W. 21st Street in Norfolk, right next to Michael Millard-Lowe Antiques.
