FEBRUARY

Hosted Weekend with Killer Bees Honey

February 26 through 28

Killer Bees Honey will present another sweet weekend for guests of Half-Mile Farm in February. Like fine wine and chocolate, pure honey is a product of local terroir. Soil, air, water, climate, and of course, plants and flowers contribute to the complexity of regional honey. Sean and Denise will present a sit-down sensory experience where guests will learn about life in the hive, how bees make honey, the differences between honey varietals and what to look for when searching for honey purity all while savoring honey from the Killer Bees apiary. Friday and Saturday evening social hour will feature signature cocktails featuring Killer Bees Honey, while the delicious nectar will be the focal point of breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.

No Man's Land

February 21

Join the Highlands PAC at 3 pm for No Man's Land. Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter's No Man's Land, broadcast live to cinemas from Wyndham's Theatre, London. One summer's evening, two aging writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.
