Popping the cork on a bottle of bubbly can fill a room with celebratory spirits. As we move into brunch season and springtime celebrations, let’s take a closer look at a Champagne’s lesser-known cousin.

Celebrating love whether you’re single or not, Galentine’s Day is a time to surround yourself with the people you love. This unofficial holiday is truly as sweet as it sounds.

After spending his childhood in Plymouth, Erik Skaar began developing his cooking style by working in some of the best kitchens across the country. In 2019, with Lake Minnetonka as a backdrop, he opened Vann restaurant in Spring Park.

The Fab Tap

Do what you love. This expression has been key to many people’s success, and Lindsey Pattee of Plymouth took it to heart when creating The Fab Tap. With a desire to share her favorite things with others, Pattee explains that her interests serve as the backbone of her business.

I’ve chosen another novice-level cocktail for the Dog Days of Summer, and I thought it’d be good to hang onto the last bit of the season with
a rum-based cocktail.
