Hickory Street Annex and Gil’s Elegant Catering are joining forces to throw a retro-inspired open house and tasting this Wednesday, May 22 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 501 Second Avenue. Amanda Taylor, event planner at Hickory Street Annex, has filled us in on the scoop for the big event. Expect pretty floral designs from Blue Lotus, tunes from Dallas Gigs, DJ talent from Colby Logan, sweets from Panini Bakery and Hot Shots, and a photo booth from 4 Flashes all set up in a retro-style scene with rentals and vintage cars from Swanky Couch. The venue is also introducing their new studio space which adds 2,000-square feet to their event space.
Now for the food. Gil’s is creating a menu focused on fresh, organic, and local produce with dishes featuring meat, fish, and poultry from sustainable farms. We peeked at the selection and we’re most excited about the heirloom tomato and Texas grown watermelon salad with feta, herbs, and citrus and the adult mac n’ cheese with fried chicken bites. Yes, please.
