Painting, Sipping & The Scotch Egg

One of our other Henry Street Favorites is the Saratoga Paint and Sip Studio. We were a tiny bit reluctant to go the first time we signed up, mostly as we aren't particularly talented when it comes to drawing or painting and weren't sure what to expect. Well, it turns out a night at Paint and Sip can be about coming home with a masterpiece (we saw several!) or it can be about trying something different with your girlfriends and enjoying the party thrown by the wonderful Catherine Hover.

Owner Catherine and her fantastic staff set the perfect tone for a night out with their energy, encouraging words and wine. Lots and lots of wine. And if you find your stomach growling after a evening spent sipping, might we suggest heading over to the Henry Street Taproom for a Scotch Egg or whatever else strikes your fancy. This more than meets the eye neighborhood favorite serves up impressive farm to table nibbles to pair with their staggering selection of handcrafted beers. 

And while we're on the topic, seriously the Scotch Egg is to die for.. if you haven't tried it yet, it's a chorizo wrapped (that's spicy sausage kids..) soft boiled egg that is fried and then covered in hollandaise sauce. Yes, HOLLANDAISE. Like the kind that will be all over your eggs benedict tomorrow- that's before you hit the Henry Street Festival from noon-4pm. As always, for more information about either Henry Street spot, click through the images above to check out their websites.
