Music, play among Sleepy Creek's many special events

FAIRMOUNT – Sleepy Creek Vineyards is offering several special events, plus its free Sunday coffee and a challenge to think about to make the cold weather a little more bearable.

First up, this weekend, at 7 p.m. Saturday is the Boulder Acoustic Society, a four-member group from Boulder, Colo. Tickets are $12 per person. Check out their music at

Reservations are recommended for all special events due to limited seating. Patrons can bring their own snacks or buy them to go with the wine and select craft beers offered for sale.

Sleepy Creek is also calling for participants in its annual Sow's Ear Challenge.

This year's challenge is to use any kind of plastic containment device. It's open to anyone of any ability. Artists and designers can use any type of plastic container to create something artistic, beautiful or, perhaps, even functional. All entries must be received between March 19 and 31. The show opens April 3. The People's Choice Award winner receives $100.

Free coffee continues from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays through April 25. Visitors can sample the Alaskan roasted Raven's Brew Coffee with names like Wicked Wolf, Deadmans Reach and Ebony Pearl.
