Cheers to more wine 
Happy Hour may be just what the doctor ordered while you're missing sips with friends, and we bring you two more outstanding opportunities to uncork your inner oenophile. Pick up a recommended bottle or more and join us as we gather together virtually for good times and unique learning opportunities.

Virtual Wine Tasting: Live from California!

Chris Hensey's ILR wine tasting classes have been a hot ticket every semester for the past 10 years. Now, he takes us straight to the source: the winemakers themselves. The past few tastings have taken us across the country and around the world for a fascinating look at the labor of love poured into each bottle. Next up, the winery of Daou Family Estates in Paso Robles! This Friday, May 22nd, 5:30pm via Zoom. Learn more and sign up.
Jack Keegan

Got two minutes?

Recorded by faculty in social isolation, these two-minute talks connect ongoing humanities research to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we adjust to new contexts for teaching, thinking, and writing, Laptop Lectures offer perspective on human experience in exceptional times.
