Editor’s note: North Coast Nosh III is officially sold out.
The Heavy Table and Open Arms of Minnesota are pleased to announce the third edition of the North Coast Nosh sip-and-sample event. Guests will taste a carefully curated selection of local foods and beverages (including honey, beer, baked goods, wine, charcuterie and more) and have a chance to talk one-on-one with some of the area’s leading purveyors.
This 21-and-up event will run from 5:30-9pm on Friday, Jan. 20, and will be held at the spacious and gracefully appointed new headquarters of Open Arms at 2500 Bloomington Ave. S. in Minneapolis. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Open Arms Minnesota and their mission of cooking and delivering meals to people suffering from life-threatening illnesses.
The Heavy Table always assesses value when it writes about local restaurants, so we thought we’d turn that same lens on our own event. Therefore: What does your $19 ticket get you?
Good Food: We’ll have a squadron of creative bites including the Thai food of Gai Gai Thai, the fine pastry of Patisserie 46, the cheese of Burnett Dairy Cooperative, and much more.
Good Drink: Local craft beer is blowing up at an unprecedented pace; Minnesota wine is hitting new heights. Plus, sample the award-winning and sophisticated flavor of Joia soda and the diverse array of craft ciders offered by Crispin.
Good Conversation: The North Coast Nosh is designed to have 10-15 attendees per vendor, ensuring ample opportunity for vendors and visitors to connect, and giving guests the chance to enjoy a relaxed, civilized sampling environment.
Glassware: Attendees will receive a custom-printed North Coast Nosh / Caves of Faribault whiskey tumbler sponsored by the generous folks at the Faribault Dairy Company.
We hope to see you there!
