Nordo’s spin on the Spaghetti Western returns with Ray Tagavilla channeling Clint Eastwood as an enigmatic stranger who comes to the town of Sauget. One farmer has had enough of the powerful forces dictating who owns the land and the crops in this small town, and Sauget is preparing for his hanging. Smoked unfurls with the slow burn of a Leone film coupled with a score so good it inspired Nordo’s spinoff band, Two Horses Too Many.

SMOKED! will feature a four-course menu designed by Chef Erin Brindley including Smoked Oxtail Chili, Sunflower Seed Risotto and Pandowdy. There will be smoky signature cocktails and wine flights available for purchase. Café Nordo + Nordo’s Culinarium is a 21+ venue.

Kate Gavigan is passionate about The Artist’s Way having seen the positive changes in her students’ lives and having personally experienced the benefits of the materials. Kate worked in social services as a trainer for over 10 years when she found herself drawn to the material in The Artist’s Way, which helped her uncover a passion for theatre and the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs as an Artist’s Way Instructor and Speaker, a Creativity Coach, a Home Organizer and pursuing her interest in Acting) to having gone through The Artist’s Way.
