This past weekend was Radar's first ever Pop Up Shop, "Snap*Crafted*Pop".  I have wanted to host one for a few years now since the concept is such a match to my local passion and support of creative talent in our cities.  I must say, it went well!  As I said on my Facebook page:  Close to 300 of you came out to support local MN artists.  You shopped, you purchased, you lingered, you brought your families, dogs, friends, husbands, wives, partners, moms, dads. And then our generous volunteers - you added that intimate experience by greeting, serving, taking coats, wrapping, pouring, DJing. I was just hoping 100 guests would attend. The love of local & community is strong even on a snowy night. I'm thrilled my little Radar could make a dent in bringing awareness to yet another batch of local creative products & talent. And knowing the purchased crafted items will be enjoyed just a little bit more because real hands made them.

Radar Partner, Kitchen in the Market is hosting a class perfect for those Mad Men-loving, sophisticated sippers or just curious about how cocktails (and food) are concocted with this magic ingredient:
Bitters! Bitters? What on earth is all the fuss about, anyway? Well, we're here to tell you: bitters may actually change your life. Or at least your drink! During this class, we'll learn how to use bitters as a fantastic addition to your cooking + cocktails repertoire.

Visiting Chef Tom Begnaud of the delish Prairie Ale House will be highlighting locally-made Bittercube Bitters throughout his menu. And Bittercube mixmasters Nick Kosevich and Ira Koplowitz will be mixing cocktails to match.
