Year Round Fun with Bottle & Bottega Arlington Heights: 2018 Recap
Bottle & Bottega Arlington Heights had an awesome 2018 thanks to our creative team members and, of course, all of the people who called upon us for interactive painting projects and hangouts. We are always trying to find new ways to have fun, entertain our guests, and inspire art in our friends and neighbors throughout Arlington Heights. Throughout 2018, we found plenty of ways to grow, share, laugh, paint, and sip wine together.
Take a look at some of our most noteworthy moments in 2018:
- We hosted an event at the Arlington Park Racetrack, where we painted outside under a tent alongside the world famous thoroughbred track. Our guests were able to get direct inspiration for their horse-themed painting by looking up and seeing the beautiful horses racing along!
- We held a Sexy Gladiator Nude Male model event in July. Art comes in many forms, and we feel it is important to celebrate them all.
- In August, we had our first female burlesque model event at Arlington Pipe & Cigar Lounge. This event acted as an intriguing comparison-contrast to the previous nude male model event in July.
- We held outdoor events called Painting in the Park all summer. Painting outside can be an enlightening experience, and we loved making it possible for so many people.
- We held our first Transformational Tuesday event sponsored by The Chicago Gender Society.
- We had a blast during the Halloween season, with spooky-themed pieces and parties.
- We introduced “Wood Rounds” to our list of mediums in the Fall! Rustic designs are growing in popularity across the country. It only made sense to add Wood Rounds to our mediums to let people enjoy this trend with a creative, personalized twist.
- The holiday season was fabulous as always. We hosted and greeted guests with hot cider and pretzels during the annual Holiday Christmas Walk!
- Lastly, we have been nominated for the “Best Small Business in Town” awards. The final award winners will be announced later in January, so be sure to stay tuned to our blog.
From all of us at Bottle & Bottega Arlington Heights, we hope you had just as fantastic a 2018 as we did! Here’s to an incredible 2019 as well, filled with wine, painting, good friends, and better times.
