Upcoming: Allure of Flowers After Hours



Recently, I attended a Taste of the Mint event, during which a group of cultured - or, in my case, pseudo-cultured - people sampled foods and wine from e2 Emeril's Eatery and Halcyon before taking a guided tour of the Mint Museum's Women of Vision exhibit. To say it was a pleasant evening is an understatement. The conversation was easy, the samples filling and the exhibit was stellar. (Interesting tidbit: One photographer's work inspired the movie Frozen. Cue "Let It Go" in your head.)

So, basically, you missed out.
