Our Events

Because Books and Booze and Food Go Together

Our favorite things are books, booze, food, and gathering people who love those things too. These events combine our favorite things in different ways so that every book-lover can find their dream event. Check them out.

Join us for a dinner party you’ll never forget! One of the most wonderful things we do here at the bookstore is our Sunday Sit Down Supper series, where we invite a great writer to talk about their work and our Chef Teryi Youngblood Musolf to plan a menu inspired by it. After hours, we transform the bookstore with long tables and family china, wine and conversation, books and inspiration. Starting with a welcome cocktail, guests spend an evening with an author enjoying a four course meal and incredible conversation. Tickets include your cocktail, dinner, evening with the author, a signed copy of the featured book, and gratuity.

Some of the most fun we have at M. Judson comes from our collaborations with Mission Grape and Camilla Kitchen, where we let the food and wine do the storytelling. One afternoon amongst the bottles, Chef Teryi got to talking about her not-so-distant tradition of Runaway Fridays, where a person might sneak off for a midday margarita and be all the better for it. And we figured we can do better than that.

Join us for a book-inspired wine tasting! We pair six wines with six books for a night of fun browsing and sipping. Your ticket includes a full tasting as well as your choice of one of the featured books. As a bonus, bottles of the featured wines are sold at a discounted rate.

If you’ve had anything bread-based from Camilla Kitchen, you know the magic that is Pastry Chef Leslie’s baking. Now she wants to share that with all of you! This will be an intimate class held in the Gallery (4th floor) of M. Judson for ten people, where you’ll prepare your dough from start to almost finish. While you’ll bake your cake at home (and get all those good smells), you’ll still get to end the baking class with a tasting. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday!

Calling all teachers for a special night out! With a teacher ID you’ll get a free glass of our house bubbles and receive a 15% discount on any purchase. These nights are always a blast, packed with raffles, giveaways, and fun. We try to keep them on the third Thursday of every month, but make sure to check the dates in case of changes.

Join us for an evening of conversation and book-inspired libations! For each event, we concoct a unique cocktail inspired by the featured book, then spend the evening sipping away and chatting with the author. Your ticket includes a cocktail and a personally signed copy of the author’s book.
