    OpinioNation by Sporcle at MBTB Shelby Township

    Saturday, Feb. 24 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!

    Silent Book Club: Royal Oak

    Thursday, Feb. 29 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

    Open to the public

    Join us for the next gathering for our Royal Oak Silent Book Club! Arrive around 6:30 p.m. to socialize, share what you're reading and order wine and snacks. Quiet reading hour runs 7-8 p.m. Keep reading 8-8:30 p.m. or enjoy more socialization. We look forward to seeing you!

    What's Silent Book Club? Silent Book Club is a global community of readers and introverts, with 300 chapters around the world led by local volunteers. SBC members gather in person and online to read together in quiet camaraderie. Silent Book Club started in 2012 with a couple of friends—Guinevere de la Mare and Laura Gluhanich—reading in companionable silence at their neighborhood bar in San Francisco. They loved books, and reading with friends, but most of their previous attempts at book clubs had fizzled out. Often with traditional book clubs there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework? At Silent Book Club, there's no assigned reading. Silent Book Club is about community. Everyone is welcome, and anyone can join or launch a chapter. We encourage people all over the world to start their own Silent Book Clubs. All you need is a friend, a café, and a book. We have active chapters around the world in cities of all sizes, and new chapters are being launched by volunteers every week. For more information, click here.

    Please note: While participants are encouraged to follow the quiet reading format, our team will not be policing this. As we remain open to the public during these events, we cannot guarantee what the volume levels will be like in the rest of the building. If you find yourself easily distracted by ambient noise, we recommend you attend the Silent Book Club at MBTB Auburn Hills, where we have a separate room with a door that closes. Thanks for understanding!

    OpinioNation by Sporcle at MBTB Shelby Township

    Saturday, March 23 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.
