Cocktails taste good, but can they do good too? Yes! We think they can! That's why we created Twin Cities Cocktail Week. TCCW is so much more than a week of special events; it's a monthlong fundraising program. Order a Generous Spirits Cocktail from a participating restaurant, and they'll donate one dollar to a local non-profit partner. What's even better is that our friends at Proximo Spirits will match the donation dollar for dollar — That's something to raise a glass to!
A little indulgence is good for the soul. For the first time, Trapeze, the Twin Cities' only bubbles bar, opens its doors to serve Sunday brunch. Sip on the unexpected while feasting on sweet and savory indulgences both big and small! Reserve your table today - email email@example.com or call 612.827.5710
