The Heavy Table and Open Arms of Minnesota are pleased to announce the twelfth edition of the North Coast Nosh locavore sip-and-sample series for Friday, Aug. 15, 2014. Join your hosts Heavy Table, Open Arms, Peace Coffee, and Chowgirls, plus more than 20 local purveyors including cheesemakers, brewers, popsicle makers, artisan pizza bakers, and more for an evening of sipping, sampling, and great conversation.

The Nosh takes place Aug. 15 from 7-9:30pm at Open Arms of Minnesota (2500 Bloomington Ave. S.). Tickets are $27 via Eventbrite; Pre-Nosh tickets are $54 and include three special small presentations and sample sessions from 5:30-7pm before the main event.

Nosh tickets are available at the door for $30 in cash (exact change, please) or credit card. Pre-Nosh tickets are not sold at the door.

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 Noshes generally sell out, so please get your tickets sooner rather than later if you’re excited about the event!

Our Pre-Nosh features Tru Pizza Neapolitan, Tin Whiskers Brewing Company with support from Sweet Science ice cream, and Verdant Tea.
