Lip Smackin’ Good

It may have taken longer than the Twin Cities wanted, but it would appear that diners feel it was worth the wait.  It’s already challenging to get dinner reservations at the Smack Shack, situated in the North Loop neighborhood.

We had a fun time with the VIP party, as everyone knows that restaurant openings are my favorite events! Thank you to Erica Loeks for the images!

There are few things greater in life than fresh oysters and champagne, especially if it is Veuve Cliquot.  The chefs shucked the oysters and presented it on the massive ice sculpture from Ice Occasions.

The centerpiece of the restaurant is the large blue lobster tank, ensuring that the lobster live in pristine water.

My faves:  Continental Roll (warm lobster roll), Smack Burger, Shrimp Boil.  (oh, and save some room for yummy dessert)

Rooftop View

The VIP opening of Crave’s new downtown rooftop was a smashing success.    We laid down the red carpet, poured Moet, passed some food and had DJ Poet, of the Black Eyed Peas, entertain the crowd!

A fun party to put on and I was happy that everyone seemed to have a goood time.

Smile Network had an amazing array of rare wine and unique items for a silent auction that took place in Crave’s Private Dining Room.

Kara of Kamarron Design always does such a beautiful job selecting fabrics, colors and textures for the Crave Restaurants.  The finishing touches on the rooftop makes it a beautiful, yet comfortable space.

This might be my favorite ice sculpture from Ice Occasions!
