No Holds Bard: Shakespeare Remade at the Zeiders Theatre-Virginia Beach Before there was The Globe, before there were the King’s Men, before Bankside and Cheapside and Bear-Baiting, there was a community that came together to create those things. Several hundred years later, we are re-creating that spirit. No Holds Bard is both a delightful treat for the seasoned Shakespeare fan and the perfect entry point for the newcomer to Billy Shakes. Whether you can recite Shakespeare chapter and verse or the citation “Macbeth 5.5.17” reads as Greek, No Holds Bard is for you.

Free Friday Wine Tasting at the Virginia Beach Winery The Virginia Beach Winery has free wine tasting every Friday night from 4:30 – 8pm. Stop by this weekend and have a taste! 🍷🥂

Jellyfish Workshop at Plantbar-Virginia Beach PlantBar’s friendly staff will start the event with an overview of Air Plant care, then we’ll show how to turn that urchin and Air Plant into a Jellyfish. After that we cut you loose to create and enjoy the evening, but we’re always near enough help. This event is $35 and includes everything needed to create a terrarium similar to the one pictured, but built to your taste. We also offer two complimentary glasses of wine, Sangria, Mimosa, or Champagne!
