The Michael Elswick Gathering
Trick or Treat? We think you’ll agree that it’s definitely a TREAT to have The Michael Elswick Gathering return to our slice of paradise here in Free Union. Entertaining all with their Jazz, Blues, Ballads & Latin tunes. Sunday, October 31st, 3 to 5:30pm. Open to all, no cover.
Michael Elswick – tenor & soprano saxophones
Eric Franzen – keyboard & bass
David Drubin – drums, kalimba and castanets
Please note, weather permitting the music may be outdoors — set up under the eaves on the back deck. Glass House Winery owner Jay has recently added several fire pits along the deck adding a beautiful ambience as well as an aid to keep you cozy on the cooler days.
In the case of inclement weather (or severe temps):
~ the music may be canceled
~ the music may move into the tropical conservatory (with overflow seating on the covered deck)
~ a passing light shower might be okay, but patrons should be prepared
Please check our Social Media posts or call the Tasting Room for an update.
We have plenty of spaced seating areas, the majority of which is outdoors — all seating areas are first come, based on what is available. We also have lots of room for tailgate/picnics on the grass, also first come.
We encourage you to bring your picnic blanket/ chairs. Pop up tents and personal grills are also welcome to be used at the overflow grassy tailgate and picnic areas. Picnics are welcome throughout the property, barring any outside alcohol.
Glass House Winery wines are available by the bottle and glass, and we are also currently conducting traditional tastings at the Tasting Room Bar.
The following measures are in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our guests, as well as our staff:
Fully vaccinated patrons may choose to not wear a face mask.
We will be adhering to, and strictly enforcing, all requirements and guidelines as set forth by the Governor and the CDC, which include increased sanitization and cleaning procedures to ensure the health and safety of guests and staff.
At all times, please maintain the minimum safe distance from those not in your group.
We all know that music and dancing go hand in hand, however, if you are going to get up and groove to the tunes, we kindly ask that you stick to the vicinity of your seated area and wear your mask while doing so.
