If you want to learn to better capture and explore your dreams, further opening to the wisdom that they offer, join us for Inspiring Dreams, the latest in our Cosmos + Cocktails collaboration with astrologer and wellness consultant Stephanie Gailing.
Dreams are a powerful vehicle for self-inquiry and personal growth. They are a window to the subconscious mind that allows us to more clearly understand our hidden desires, fears, longings and emotions.
Stephanie will share an array of approaches to help us better recall and understand our dreams. She'll provide us with healing insights from ancient dream temples, including the practice of dream incubation, and show how we can apply this wisdom to our modern lifestyle. She'll discuss self-care strategies—including flower essences, essential oils, and daily rituals—that can bolster sleep and dream work. Whether you actively work with your dreams or you have a hard time remembering them, you'll get insights and practical tips that inspire this realm of your life.
To further our exploration into the dream realm, Stephanie will be joined by an ESM master cocktail to create vision enhancing cocktails and discuss the best spirit infusing herbs to calm the body, deepen sleep and inspire lucidness during your dream journeys.
We welcome you to join us in the Back Bar before class should you desire. Please plan to arrive at least one hour before class begins to allow for meal and beverage service.

E. Smith Mercantile is honored to be the first retailer to offer local and artisan made Orasella maraschino cherries. Join us for their second seasonal release at a special launch party event!
Seattle-based, Orasella Maraschino Cherries, are behind the bar at Seattle’s best craft cocktail establishments - Rob Roy, Barnacle, and our very own E. Smith Mercantile. Founded upon the belief that the history of the maraschino cherry deserves to be rewritten, Orasella’s 2016 batch of retail cherries quickly sold out following an article in the Seattle Times. Their now cult following makes this irreplaceable cocktail addition a must-have for any home bar enthusiast.
Join us as E. Smith gets the first shipment of their 2017 harvest before they’re widely available in retail. Meet the founders, pick up a jar and imbibe in an exclusive menu of Orasella themed cocktails in E. Smith’s newly renovated Heritage Room.
This is a free event and will be admitted first come, first serve. 21+
