Introducing The #SipLocalKC Tasting Series + Launch Celebration | Friday, August 10, 2018 | 7:00 PM

Thursday, August 09, 2018Ava Bella

I cannot tell you how excited I am to be bringing to life something that started right here on AvaBella's Indie Blog! Just 1 year and 3 months ago, I wrote my first post about #SipLocalKC. When I started the series, I knew that Kansas City's "sip economy" was growing, but I honestly would not have guessed that you all would love the series as much as you did! That's when I knew that I had to do something huge for the city, my city! I have spent many days wanting to do more for the town. More than just my music. More than just producing events. I wanted to take one of the best parts of our growing and thriving city and take you with me as I continue to discover my favorites and hopefully help you discover some of your own. This is what I came up with! With all of the love and support that you all have shown me; this is my way to say THANK YOU! 




Special thanks to Dott Boss Restaurant at the Hotel Indigo (Downtown KC) for being our host venue! Special thank you to KC Wineworks for being our very first "featured sip"! Thank you to Endia Lasker for your awesome heart and your amazing art! Thank you to the host with the most, Shawn Edwards for being completely awesome! Thank you 'The Sips' Jazz Trio... little big cousin K.C., you're like the best family anybody could ever have - your spirit is beautiful!

With that said (if I haven't been lighting up your feed already), I officially introduce to you, the #SipLocalKC Tasting Series + Launch Event Celebration!
