Sip sultry, seasonal cocktails while carving farm-fresh pumpkins at Elate’s pre-Halloween, hands-on affair. Starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 27, participants will pick their pre-prepped pumpkin (no scooping needed) and set their space with the provided design tools. As the carving continues, guests will enjoy Chef Noll’s complimentary roasted pumpkin seeds and other festive Halloween treats.
Elate’s pumpkin martinis will perfectly pair with the pumpkin-theme party ($8). The full dinner menu will be available, including flatbreads and other small plate, sharable dishes.
The fee to enter is $10. The top pumpkin design will win a gift certificate for dinner for two at Elate.
