Porter Dining Hall Patio, Free

Register now

Sammy the Slug will serve no wine before its time, and the time has come to pop the cork and take a sip of something wonderful.

Featuring Bonny Doon Vineyard wines by alumni vintner Randall Grahm, a lovely afternoon of relaxation and stimulating conversation awaits you under a natural redwood canopy on the Porter Dining Hall Patio. If beer is your preference, you won't be disappointed! This event will also feature Sante Adairius Rustic Ales, rustic old-world ales with some West Coast twists by UCSC alum Timothy Clifford (Stevenson) and Adair Paterno. Beers offered will include an IPA, a Saisson, and a Porter poured by Tim himself.

Mingle with Teach-In speakers and continue the discussion over a glass of fine wine and a spread of scrumptious hors d'oeuvres. Reconnect with your favorite professors and enjoy unwinding in the company of proud fellow Slugs.

From 5 – 6 p.m., please stroll over to the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery with your glass of wine to join fellow art lovers for a reception and gallery walk-through with three UC Santa Cruz alumni photographers.
