Wine + Cookies= Drinking Like a Grown Up


Have you ever wondered exactly what wine would go best with your favorite Girl Scout cookies, as you attempt to have enough self-control not to plow through the whole box?  Well! You’re in luck! The Modbo is thrilled to present a very special and not-so-stuffy wine tasting by talented local sommelier Michaela Hightower. Join us at 3 pm on Sunday, April 7th, for a 90-minute wine and Girl Scout Cookie pairing extravaganza.  Your $30 will provide 4 tastes of delicious dry wines, each expertly paired with a Girl Scout Cookie. Michaela will lead you through the techniques of wine tasting as well as share her knowledge of the wines she has chosen, so you won’t just leave with a sugar high–you’ll leave with some impressive new wine facts!  Space is limited to 20 seats; advanced paid reservations are required. Register here!

The Modbo is a small art gallery and events space located in the Arts Alley in downtown Colorado Springs at 17C E. Bijou. Find the stretch of Bijou that is between Cascade and Tejon, and go south down the alley. Street parking is available, but The Modbo recommends the lot on Cascade just north of Bijou, which is only $1 after 3 pm. The Modbo can be reached at,, or 633-4240.
