PAYOMET PRESENTS: DOM FLEMONS

Saturday Dec. 27, 7:30pm

BUY TICKETS HERE

Dom (Carolina Chocolate Drops) is one of the great American masters, a singer from a world and time beyond as well as a multi-instrumentalist who plays the bones, and the quills. He's a walking historical encyclopedia of early American music, from country and old-time blues to nearly forgotten African American folk music.  And best of all --- he and his trio will have so much fun on stage that you'll think this December 27th concert is an early start on a New Year's celebration. Dom is on the road solo with a new album, "American Songster," of which Full Time Blues has this to say: "Dom Flemons is a true virtuoso. A musician that is equally adept at singing, playing, and the craft of songwriting, Flemons enjoys testing his skills on a variety of musical instruments in a variety of musical genres."

FOOD ON FILM SERIES: BABETTE'S FEAST

Thursday, January 15, 6:00pm BUY TICKETS HERE

Prez Hall and Lolas' Local Food Lab are delighted to present the 3rd season of Food on Film - we're calling it Heartburn: Recipes for Transformation. This wonderful selection of 5 food (and female) centric films celebrates and savors the passions of the kitchen, mirrored in the dreams and desires of strong-willed women as they search for authenticity in taste and in truth. Each has a different recipe for transforming their lives, as we discover what it means to nourish, to feast, and to be hungry. Each screening will be accompanied by a small plate dish inspired by the film and prepared by series co-creator Kim Shkapich of Lola's Local Food Lab, with occasional surprise guest chefs. We kick off the series with a savory classic, and one of the top 10 culinary films of all time: BABETTE'S FEAST, 1987, directed by Gabriel Axel. Based on a novel by Karen Blixen. READ MORE HERE
