On the Third Thursday of each month, YBCA combines drinks, food, and music with creative and exciting art happenings. From 5-8 come together, enjoy free access to our world class galleries, and be part of the art at YBCA.

In December, join YBCA for a winter celebration as local anthropologist Cari Borja invites us to connect through the act of gathering around a communal table. Borja examines the balance between all of the aspects that go into creating a celebratory gathering, with the help of local winemakers, chefs, and more including James Beard winning writer Laura Werlin; executive chef of RN74, Michael Mina, and Middle’terranea Adam Sobel; sommelier and partner of Sandhi Wines and Domaine de la Côte Rajat Parr; Hannah Hoffman of Doughnut Dolly; wine director and owner of A16 Shelley Lindgren; and more!
