Given the latest developments surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic Sip & Sizzle has been cancelled. While we are disappointed to cancel one of our most popular touring programs, this decision is grounded in care for our team, guests and community as we place everyone’s health and well-being above all else. We will be issuing refunds on all previously purchased tickets. All refunds will be processed through EzTix over the next couple of weeks and we appreciate your patience. We do look forward to seeing you at Sip and Sizzle in May 2021!
