The Friends of City Park do a great job in helping to protect, preserve and overall better City Park. Given that we use City Park a lot, we’re happy to be card carrying members or Friends. One thing that the Friends do is put on some pretty kicking events. The best one by far, in my mind, is Martini Madness. Per Friends, Martini Madness is an “evening features an array of marvelous martinis and exquisite eats from top area restaurants with all proceeds dedicated to landscaping the area around the newly constructed Arbor Room at Popp Fountain.”
Last year, the restaurant’s dishing out food included Ralph’s on the Park, Red Fish Grill, Pigeon Caterers, and Slice, to nanme a few. This year, at a minimum includes Three Muses and Ralph’s on the Park. Free food from both of those places is worth the price of admission on it’s own. To wash down this food, you’ve got a number of specialty “martinis” made from gin and/or vodka spread all around the room. Not a bad deal for the $50 asking price ($45 if you’re a Friend of City Park, and you should be). To sweeten the pot, the Friends have offered a buy 2 for the price of 1 special until noon today, just enter “MMTD11″ as your promo code. Tickets can be ordered here.
Happy Friday all!
