The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling with the well known tag line "true stories told before a live audience." At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it. The organization achieves its mission through a variety of conduits, including live shows on the Mainstage in New York and on tour, workshops on storytelling, and in both its Podcast and the Moth Radio Hour. For more information about the Moth, visit their website.

We had a wonderful afternoon at the Wine Detective learning all about wine tasting. This innovative wine bar uses automatic Enomatic wine dispensers to allow
tasting of 48 wines at any time. The staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming.
Back by popular demand, the AWIS ladies enjoyed a family friendly hike through Solstice Canyon in Malibu with family and guests. We returned to a lovely wooded trail leading to a 30 foot waterfall and the ruins of an old home totaling about a mile.
