6:30-9:30pm on Saturday, July 20, 2013
And now for something completely different...
We are celebrating our WEN MN 20th Anniversary by having a Gala! Arrive early to walk around Mears Park and the Lowertown area in St. Paul. Make your way over to Faces Mears Park by 6:30pm where we will enjoy a beautiful dinner that will begin at 7:00pm. There will also be a cash bar. Dinner will be followed by a dance with 70s and 80s music so wear your dancing shoes! Don't worry, the volume will not be very loud because we do like to talk and hear each other. Bring along a friend/partner/companion/confidant/client/etc (male or female!) for even more fun! The event will end at 9:30pm, but everyone is free to stay on at Faces to enjoy their music event of the night which begins at 10:00pm.
Faces Mears Park is located off the west side of Mears Park in downtown St. Paul. Metered parking is free after 4:00pm. There are many buses that will take you very close to the restaurant (Metro Transit).
Registration will be open soon. Because of the limited space and the set menu, there will be no walk up registrations for this event. Prices will be $50 for non-students and $35 for students. WEN MN members will receive a small perk for being a member. Keep checking back to find out what this perk will be!
Fun was had by all at the WEN MN members only local wine tasting event at Warehouse
Winery in St. Louis Park on May 15. The food was plentiful and yummy, as was the wine. Nick provided us with fantastic information about the history of the winery and making the wines. Thank you for coming!
