Drink of the Week – Crate and Barrel Store Opening
Yesterday evening we stopped by the Crate and Barrel store opening party to check out the fresh new space and exciting designs. An estimated 400 guests gathered for a first look at the new store in Oakridge Centre and enjoyed tasty canapés and wine by Hawksworth Restaurant. Shoppers received 15% of their purchase and left with a cute swag bag of Crate and Barrel goodies!
Attention imbibers, Crate and Barral has an impressive selection of glassware and bar & beverage tools. We saw everything from beer flight sets to Great Gatsby tumblers & martini shakers. Not to mention every style champagne flute, wine glass and even pint glass! Crate and Barrel might just be your new one-stop-shop, it’s definitely ours!
This week’s Drink of the Week is a glass of white H’s Blend served at the reception – a white wine blend of 50% Pinot Gris and 50% Riesling grapes grown at the family-run Orofino Winery in the Similkameen Valley. A glass of this elegant wine was the perfect way to end a busy day; we love the distinctive yet delicate flavour, with notes of citrus and pear. If you haven’t tried it yet, make sure you order a glass of this great wine blend available exclusively at Hawksworth Restaurant and Bel Cafe, as part of their gold award-winning wine list for $11 per glass and $55 per bottle.
