Luna Kombucha Tapping

Meet us and other singles at OTR’s Park+Vine where we’ll tap and taste Luna Kombucha, a “tea beer” that’s locally-brewed, detoxifying, and gluten-free.  Then strap on your walking shoes for a visit to the beneficiary of our event, The Civic Garden Center’s People’s Garden.  Managed by local residents and volunteers, the produce feeds area residents and fills food bank shelves.
