Description: This is going to be an extra-special treat: Guitarist Mike Gellar has invited Julie Buck, who's a fun, gutsy vocalist from Tucson, and an all-around fun person to hang out with. I met Julie last winter in Tucson, where we had some great music sessions together with Mike. Now the three of us will be singing and playing at Big Cork. We'll be having a blast, and so will you! Make plans, designate a sober driver, pack a picnic hamper, and spend a great afternoon with us in this gorgeous setting. Purchase your wine at the winery, of course, after you've had all your samplings. And they also sell delicious cold-cuts, cheese plates, olives, and fresh baguettes. Live it up!
