Nectar March 2012 Spokane Wine Events
March. Daylight savings time, St Patrick’s Day, Spring…I can almost feel the sunshine on my face as I anticipate the rebirth of the grass, trees, and flowers! If you’ve been following along, you know we’ve been BUSY at Nectar. In February we announced a new expanded food menu and partnerships with local restaurants. We also decided to lease the 1000 sq ft next to Nectar and use it for an extra event space, large event overflow and more. The Barrel Room should be done by April 1. Check out our EVENTS PAGE for all the details.
