    OpinioNation by Sporcle at MBTB Shelby Township

    Saturday, July 20 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

    Open to the public

    Join us at Michigan By The Bottle Tasting Room-Shelby Township for the Family Feud-style game OpinioNation, with games on Saturdays at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.! OpinioNation is a survey-based game that is great for everyone – not just brainiacs! Teams try to guess the five most popular responses given to fun survey questions. It’s not a test of your knowledge, it’s a chance to see what you can think of. The "smartest" team doesn’t always win! It's FREE to play, and the top three teams in each game receive prizes!

    The Rules: Each of the four quarters asks four questions. For each question, you’ll earn 5 points if your team guesses the most popular answer, 4 points for the second-most popular answer, and so on down to 1 point for the 5th most-popular answer. At the end of quarters 1-3, there is a bonus question that gives you two points for each correct answer guessed by your team. After the four quarters there are two Final Questions. On the Final Questions, teams are still guessing the most popular answers, but this time the most popular answer earns you 10 points, the second-most popular answer earns 5 points, the third-most popular answer earns 0 points, and anything else causes your team to lose 5 points! After the Final Question answers are turned in and scored, the team with the most points wins!

Featured Artist

MBTB Tasting Room is home to a long-term gallery exhibit by Michigan artist Stephanie Schlatter. Stephanie, who hails from the Grand Rapids area, describes herself as “a painter of color, with a passion for expressing those things which inspire me.” One of those things is Michigan wine country, which served as the catalyst for Stephanie’s series, “On the Michigan Wine Trail.” The OTMWT works are her vivid depictions of the state’s sweeping vineyard vistas, but Stephanie says it’s more than just an attempt to re-create beautiful scenery.

“It explores the essence of the region’s many seasonal faces,” she explained. “It reveals the hearts of the people who live there, and what happens to them as they inhabit and grow attached to this enchanting place. It captures the magic that I personally found there, that has in turn captured me. My series, like their wine, tells of the people – their journeys, their art, and the relationships they’ve built with the land. The stories are all there on the canvas, like a bottle of wine, waiting for us to uncork it.”

You can see portions of Stephanie’s OTMWT series in person at MBTB Tasting Room, and also purchase originals and/or prints of various sizes on site.
