Wild Moor Liquer Tour and Tasting – 1:30pm in Hartford

Woman Owned Herbalist drinks company designer Lelaneia Dibai, Cratirix & Infusionary, will give us a tour, a talk and a tasting. The new company has been gaining popularity because of its herbal mixtures & fascinating owner. The experience will last about 90 minutes. We scheduled it after lunch so we are not tasting on empty tummies. Therefore we have scheduled carpools to leave exit 65 park & drive lot at 11:00am giving us time to eat at one of the several fun ethnic restaurants nearby.

Carpools to leave Westbrook Park & RIde at Exit 65 at 11:00am  Cost $15  Minimum Group Size 8

Email Eileen indicating if you will drive, and if so, how many passenger you are willing to take, or if you need a ride. Note: Registrants will be given restaurant options in October (or no lunch/leave later).
