Monday night, May 12th from 8-10 pm, The British Beer Company in Falmouth Heights will be hosting a Ladies Night event including several local vendors, raffles and wine tasting.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit the family of Leo Finn, a BBC employee and friend who lost his battle with cancer earlier this year. Leo left behind a wife and three children; his wife and oldest child still work for the BBC. He was also the biggest supporter of fund raising events in the company, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars in his tenure with the company for great local and national groups.
Vendors at the event will include:
Cape Cakes by Kristen
Alison Wells with Mary Kay
Partylite by Annie Lee Speroni
Athenas by Katrina
Bzzyfingers handmade children's items by Melissa Oliveira
Lia Sophia with Brooke Kowalski
A fun filled night with good friends, fun vendors, great raffle prizes, and fund raising for a local Cape Cod family are what the evening is about. Tuck the littles in bed and grab your BFF for a night out! Make a night out of it by grabbing dinner or appetizers with the girls.
This is a family friendly event and is not limited to just the ladies. For more information, "like" the British Beer Company Falmouth Heights facebook page and check out the event listing!

Each month I try to write a good amount for each post. But sometimes this Mom gets busy and so I often will just write something short& sweet. So here is my first “Short & Sweet” post.
A nice red, a chilled white, really just pour me a glass already.
We moved to the Cape a year and a half ago and that fall as we settled in my son started pre-school in Eastham. Almost every week picking him up we’d drive home and after the rotary we would continue on 6 towards Brewster and along that stretch of the road there is almost always one of those big empty liter bottles of wine. A couple weeks ago I noticed two. It got me thinking, where did this wine come from, what is its back-story. As a breastfeeding Mom I have had a (one ok maybe two) glass here and there, not too often, or is it not often enough?! So if you find yourself heading down route 6 after the rotary, look along the side of that road and perhaps you too will notice that random wine bottle and come up with your own backstory for it. But I really think some Mom and her girlfriends enjoyed that bottle and had some laughs. How it ended up on the road though who knows.
Perhaps this bottle and the 2nd bottle fell off a truck en route to a dump, or on the way to be recycled, could it be that simple. Could it be teenagers sneaking wine out of their parent’s fridge or liquor cabinet and then
tossing the evidence in the woods behind their house, note I do not condone teen-age drinking. Then I noticed the trend of these Mom’s and women old timey posts online about wine and I think that wine is definitely from a Mom. I’m not sure why it ended up on the side of the road, but it’s from a Mom. Winter is
almost over, but in these winter months when it’s harder to get outside with the kids and find things to keep them busy even the tons of toys they have are not enough, at the end of the day when your little cuties are in bed sleeping away looking so innocent and cute, it’s nice to finish off your evening with a glass of wine. I think it’s well deserved, along with some mindless viewing of something on the DVR.
I’m not saying you need to self-medicate with wine, or it’s the crutch that gets us through the day. But after bedtime I like to have a glass of wine or beer before I myself go to bed. It’s not a 7-day a week treat, but it is a treat that I look forward to some evenings. So Cheers to you, whether it’s 2-buck chuck or a more expensive label enjoy and although we got snow last night, today is officially the last day of winter. Bring on the margaritas!
