Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) Winery Training

This ABC approved course is open only to Solvang Chambers members and features the new RBS training curriculum. All alcohol servers and managers (over 1,000,000 statewide) must complete the entire certification process by August 31st, 2022. The process includes registering with ABC, completing the new course from an state accredited training provider and passing the new online ABC certifying exam within 30 days of taking the course. Certification is valid for three years. 

All employees, supervisors and managers now attend the same course. Under the new law, anyone who does any of the following (even just occasionally) must be certified...takes alcohol orders, pours alcohol, serves/delivers alcohol or checks ID for entry or alcohol service (bouncers/security). Additionally, anyone who supervises, manages, trains or is directly involved in the hiring of those mentioned above must also be certified. 

This course offering is specifically tailored for those involved in the service of alcohol in wineries/tasting rooms, breweries/taprooms as well as bars and restaurants. It covers all the new mandated course topics while focusing on the everyday issues employees, supervisors and managers face including the identification of fake ID's and the fraudulent use of real ID's by minors, strategies for preventing guests from becoming overly intoxicated and refusing service to those that are. The in-person course is four hours in duration and is taught by a 25 year veteran of local law enforcement. 

 

All attendees must register with ABC HERE and pay the $3 ABC server registration fee before signing up to attend. Once registered with ABC, a server ID number will be issued. This number is required in order to complete the course registration process on Eventbrite.

Aireene Espiritu – Lost Chord Guitars

Los Angeles Times, Jonny Whiteside“Folk singer-songwriter Aireene Espiritu works in the elemental substance of vernacular American music with an uncanny ease. Whether blues, hillbilly, soul, folk or R&B...demonstrates masterly command of each. Her original compositions mix deft lyrical construction and classic form just as impressively...An authentic, authoritative vocalist and with distinctly sensitive manner of phrasing...”  
No Depression, Terry Roland“A rare breed of artist, a soul singer, a folk troubadour, a blues artist, a busk show princess, a skiffle tear-stained street singer with a heart as big as the history of the music that drives her. And in the final analysis, she is a storyteller without borders or cultural limitations.”

Native Gardens PCPA Play Santa Maria

Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this hilarious comedy of good intentions and bad manners. Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all- out war of taste, class, privilege, and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.
