We’re having a birthday party this weekend! Actually, we’re having 2 birthday parties! Our friend and jewelry designer Vicente Agor returns to the Twin Cities to launch his brand new retro-inspired collection of black, white and bold colors on mother-of-pearl background. We are celebrating with Vicente this weekend with a double-birthday party in honor of his 50th birthday and the 10th anniversary of his double organ transplant. As always, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Vicente’s jewelry will be donated to Life Source and to the University of Minnesota. On Saturday, we’re going to really add to the festivities with a wine and chocolate pairing between noon and 4 with sommelier Leslee Miller of Amusee.
But wait, there’s more! It’s going to be hopping at Excelsior & Grand as our friends down the street at Gourmet Oil & Vinegar are having a holiday open house with holiday entertaining appetizer ideas (and, by ideas, I mean samples!) and a visit from local food personality Sue Zelickson. So, as you can tell, this is the place to be this weekend — for fun and for some great holiday gift shopping It’s the Vicente Agor Trunk Show and Birthday Celebration on November 30-December 2 with a wine and chocolate pairing on Saturday the 1st, and a holiday open house at Gourmet Oil & Vinegar. We hope you’ll stop by and join in the holiday cheer.
