An event unique to Greensboro’s Beer Month is the Tap ‘N’ Run which is taking place on April 26 at 2 p.m. This is a fun 4k run/walk with multiple ‘chug stations’ strategically placed at the Start and on the race route where participants get to indulge in 5 ounces of beer on a wild trek to the Finish Line were more brews await. Every participant receives free a finishers medal that doubles as a beer opener, customized bibs, race t-shirt, and an incredibly unique experience. This is a social race and afterwards includes a hilarious Extracurricular Awards Ceremony.
Thanks to The Fresh Market, the proceeds from this year’s ArtsGreensboro Wine Gala on April 3 will be used to support arts programming in the schools through the organization’s popular Teacher Art Grants program. The wine & culinary benefit is scheduled for Thursday April 3, 2014 at the 1560 Highwoods Boulevard Fresh Market store from 8-10pm (just off New Garden Road). The festivities will also celebrate the work and contributions of Guilford County’s arts teachers, including the award of the 2014 Arts Teacher of the Year that evening.
Entertainment will include a special sneak preview of “Duke Ellington Uptown” presented by the Touring Theater of North Carolina. Tickets for the event are only $25, and can be purchased online at artsgreensboro.org or by calling Arts- Greensboro at 336-373-7523 weekdays. !
