I noticed when updating our Special Events Calendar that there’s so much great stuff going on during the next two weeks, an upcoming events roundup was due.
Check out events calendar, let me know if there’s anything else that you think should be listed there. (I’m not just saying this because I update it) It’s a great place to find out about cooking classes, home tours, expos, seminars and design events, etc.
Hosted by Metro Magazine Wednesdays in May from 5:30-8, the Green Home Happy Hours give you a chance to eat and drink delicious (and free) refreshments while snooping around the gorgeous sustainable home in which its hosted that week.
I went last week and not only had a blast, but I learned a few green tips I can incorporate into my own home.
This year, for the price of one ticket, you have the unique opportunity to see two homes located just minutes from each other. Though the homes share the same essential locale and each has lake views that inspired 26 ASID designers, the two are distinct in many ways.
The Lake of the Isles turn-of-the-century home is designed for a world traveler. The brand new Calhoun condo is designed for a future homeowner who appreciates clean-lined, sophisticated spaces.
Warners’ Stellian is a sponsor of this year’s event, and we supplied the appliances for both houses.
The tour kicks off Saturday, May 15 and runs Wednesdays through Sundays until June 13.
My suggestion would be to check out one of the various Culinary Nights, featuring food from chefs from local popular restaurants.
The next two Saturdays at two Warners’ Stellian stores, lifestyle expert Ross Sveback will be teaching Moroccan cooking, with recipes inspired specifically by the region of Marrakech.
You’ll start with a sample of salads scented with spices such as cumin and chili powder and then learn to cook:
- Pot-Roasted Eggplant Salad with Tomatoes, Smoked Paprika and Cumin
- Moroccan Beef Stew, fragrant with saffron, ginger and turmeric served with Noodles tossed in Sea Salt and Cinnamon
- Pears, poached in Orange and Clove syrup served with pitted prunes
- Semolina Pancakes drizzled with Pure Comb Honey
Cost of the class is $50, please reserve your spot by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Thinking about a remodel? Need some fresh kitchen ideas? Award-winning remodeler and custom home builder College City is hosting another kitchen design seminar Thursday, May 20 at Warners’ Stellian St. Paul.
You’ll get designers perspectives and practical examples as well as an executive chef’s point of view on high-functioning kitchen design (and the chef will also do a cooking demo, so there will be food involved…).
Cost vs. value comparisons on remodeling projects will be presented for those wanting to get the most bang for their buck. I’ve heard good things about this event so far, and College City has a great reputation within the remodeling industry.
The seminar is free but limited to 30 people, so RSVP at http://www.collegecityremodeling.com or call 952-469-6900.
How can a child focus on learning when she doesn’t have decent shoes? Sadly, that’s the story with a number of students in St. Paul schools.
We’re proud to be a drop-off site for Shoes For Kids, which is collecting gently used shoes for children in grades K-6. Your donations will benefit students of North End, Daytons Bluff, John A. Johnson and Bruce Vento schools who can’t afford an adequate pair of shoes.
