Get outside and come do yoga on the lawn at Drake's: The Barn! We're stretching our hearts, minds and beer bellies with an all-levels vinyasa flow class on Saturday, 4/20 at 11am.

This one-hour yoga class will be led by Aleta Sage. Aleta began practicing yoga nearly two decades ago and is now a certified meditation teacher, as well as a yoga instructor. Aleta's deep desire to be present initially drew her to the practice and gave her something she didn't even know was missing. She believes yoga and meditation grant you the freedom to be more grounded, less frenetic, and to evolve beyond what you are. In her words: “I love teaching yoga and meditation because it gives me the opportunity to offer these gifts to others. It's a lifelong passion that I'm looking forward to sharing with you!”

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in-person on the day of the event between 10:30am and 10:50am. Space is limited to the first 100 people and class begins promptly at 11am so please arrive early! Price includes one hour of instruction and a delicious pint of beer afterward. All guests must be of legal drinking age and we ask that you come prepared with your own mat, appropriate attire and anything else you might need for your practice.

We know that this class is on 4/20… While we appreciate the idea of ganja yoga, please consume your cannabis off-site. Sorry!



Hop on over to Drake’s The Barn for an Easter celebration of adorable proportions! From 3-6pm on Sunday, 4/21, we’ll be hosting a FREE petting zoo, featuring all your favorite furry animals. Have you met a miniature donkey before? Ever touched the gloriously soft fur of a miniature alpaca?! Now’s your chance!

In addition to creature comforts, we’ll have Easter Eggs hidden around the property. Truly skilled hunters will be rewarded with goodies inside each one, especially the Golden Egg. All ages welcome to join the search!

Drake’s The Barn will be open for regular service before and after this special event. Come hang out with us anytime during the day for food and booze.
