I recently had the pleasure of attending the Grand Opening for a new addition to the already ahead of trend Myers Park establishment, FABO. Introducing The Glass House at FABO...
Have you been to FABO yet? If not, you must go there. Conceptually, and well, in reality, they don't come much cooler than this. Just take a closer look at the name, FABO, an acronym for Fabulous Art Buying Opportunity.
FABO is a locally owned coffee shop and art gallery, offering works from over 50 local artists that span the categories of jewelry, paintings, pottery and more. Talent abounds at FABO. Here, a sampling of jewels and accessories on display...
The Glass House Grand Opening Party was Hoppin'!
Rolling out the red carpet, The Glass House highlighted the talents of some other groups local to the Queen City and North Carolina. There were sweet treats from Polka Dot Bake Shop, delicious catered munchies by Plates Perfect Catering, and, of course, there was wine galore, with assistance provided by Fine Wine Trading Company, The Country Vintner and Must Distributing, LLC.
LunaZon Photography provided photography leading up to the main event. Most Wonderful Man in the World accompanied me for this night of fun, which included a few hysterical moments inside the so fun ShutterBooth. K-Fed? What's uuuup?
Here's a peak at the beer and wine list from the evening. We're in a Zin kind of mood right now. If you are too, the Klinker Brick Old Vine... How to describe?... Like my tongue was swimming in a sea of satin sheets.
Concocting all this fabulous magic at The Glass House is Katie Crawley, otherwise known as the Evil Mastermind, as so poignantly self-described. Joining the partnership at FABO as a former wine distributor, Katie brings a vast knowledge of beer and wine to The Glass House. Perhaps what most wonderful man in the world loved most was hearing that The Glass House's beer list takes equal consideration and is of equal caliber to the wine list. FABulous Wine + FABulous Beer = Fun for All.
FABO and The Glass House are located on Selwyn Avenue in the heart of Myers Park. This means lots of families and lots of kiddies. FABO is Kid-Friendly (Wahooo!), especially before 6pm. Another equation for you... A play date at FABO looks a little like this: Cupcakes and juice for the kiddies + Vino, Cheese and Crackers for the Moms = MY kind of play date. They even host Kids Art Parties. So cool.
I encourage you, you and your spouse, you and your friend or you and the kiddies to check out this one of a kind, community-centric gathering spot. FABO and The Glass House promise a warm and fuzzy, neighborhood-feeling, good time for all. Click HERE for information regarding location, hours and more.
For the love of sipping, shopping and supporting your community, all in fabulous Style...
Cheers to FABO, The Glass House and You! -Whitley
