Dinner 27: A Welcome Party
A couple of weekends ago, we hosted our 27th dinner in the front parking lot of the new Austin Architects office right next to Local Root. A dinner in a parking lot, you ask? Well, yes! And what a beautiful dinner it was. No details were spared when Jonathan Austin and his team renovated a house-turned-office for his new business address, right down to the lovely stone pavers that grace his front parking space. It was there that we set-up beautifully dressed tables, and had an incredible meal courtesy of Rene and Hi-Rise Bread Co, to the tune of Sunday evening traffic on Concord Avenue.
This was the first dinner for Didriks’ new visual merchandiser Alex, who did a superb job of dressing the table for the evening. The meal started, as it often does, with a cocktail hour of sorts, before guests were seated and treated to a divine four-course meal.
In this post, we’ll recap the cocktail hour and table setting for you, and then next week I’ll share the wonderful menu. Settle in and prepare to be blown away!
