Traditional or modern? Choose your event Thursday: For the former, from 5-8 p.m. Crosell & Co. will celebrate its newly designed MacKenzie-Childs. Guests can get a sneak preview of the shop before it opens to the public the following day. Spend $150 or more from the new collection any time during the opening party and/or weekend trunk show and get a MacKenzie-Childs heart plate. For the more modern-minded, I’ll be giving a short talk on outdoor entertaining at Vesta’s Fuego grill event starting at 6 p.m. Architects, landscape designers, and others interested in checking out Fuego’s new Element grill are welcome to enjoy Goose Island beer, BBQ, and demos. I hear the weather is going to cooperate! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
