Announcing North Coast Nosh V at Open Arms

Sarah McGee / Heavy Table

The Heavy Table and Open Arms of Minnesota are pleased to announce the fifth edition of the North Coast Nosh locavore sip-and-sample series for Aug. 17, 2012.

The Nosh moves with the seasons, so for this event, we’re putting an emphasis on artisanal frozen treats and local street food.

The Nosh takes place Aug. 17 from 5:30-9pm at Open Arms of Minnesota (2500 Bloomington Ave. S.). Tickets are $23 and are sent by mail; proceeds go to Open Arms of Minnesota, with The Heavy Table taking a share for planning and publicity. Ticket price includes samples from all of our purveyors, plus a collectible piece of glassware. Guests must be 21 years of age or older. Our first four Noshes sold out, so please get your tickets sooner rather than later if you’re excited about the event!

NOTE: We are down to our last 10 tickets. Because it’s late in the game, any tickets bought at this point will be made available at will call, rather than being mailed. — Aug. 15, 3pm.
