Sip, Sip, Hooray

Fresh-faced skincare mavens Elle Feldman and Courtney Dunlop are known best for giving you a juicy, dewy facial glow (and maybe a glass of wine, too) at Good Skin Day. Now the two are making your stomach as happy as your skin with their newly announced Good Clean Wine. Aiming to help you “see the world through a cleaner glass,” Good Clean Wine is made from grapes grown in a biodiverse vineyard. Feldman and Dunlop are releasing details soon, so join the mailing list for more information.  

Shake Your Bon Bon

The sweets and confections shop officially closed its Parkcrest Center location on Friday and plans to open the doors at the new digs early this week.

Feast Beneath the Trees

Embrace the ambiance of Sunshine Valley Farm apple orchard as you dig into a three-course dinner at Harvest Restaurant’s weekly Dinner in the Orchard. Each Thursday night for the month of September, Chef Craig von Foerster presents appetizers and a prix fixe three-course menu highlighting his hyper-seasonal, micro-local cuisine, all of which is paired with three wines hand-selected from female winemakers. Seating is limited and reservations are required. 

Ye Olde Fest

Get a jump start on your fall celebrations this Saturday with Mother’s Brewing Co.’s Oktoberfest, which is kicking the season off with a medieval-themed celebration. The annual backyard bash includes live music; bites from FireLight Pizza Co., Hörrmann Meat Co. and Black Sheep Burgers & Shakes; and, of course, a whole host of Mother’s brews. Buy tickets ahead of time or at the gate, and be sure to leave the pups at home for this one. Prost!

Bringing Home the Bacon

Local personal chef Anna Davis is heading to the World Food Championships after competing at the Bacon Bash in St. Louis, where she qualified for a golden ticket to the international food face-off in Dallas. Davis is competing in the bacon category, and her qualifying dish incorporated bacon in seven different ways. For now she’s keeping mum about her championship dish as she develops the perfect recipe. Cheer on Davis and fellow local chefs representing 417-land at the competition October 16–20.

Pride & Providence

In a celebration of all things veal, join the Progress team this Thursday for a five-course dinner highlighting meat from Seymour’s Providence Farm, a 25-acre family farm specializing in ethically raised poultry, veal and produce. The dinner includes five courses of veal in five different preparations, with wine pairings focusing on small-production wineries. Purchase tickets online or reserve a spot by calling 417-799-9388.
