The West Slope Supper Club

A few months ago I got a top-secret letter in the mail inviting me to a pop-up cocktail party in an empty space above Tangle. The theme was “speakeasy” and I had to email in my RSVP to receive the secret password, which was gimlet. After tearing through everything I owned, I settled on my black-sequined party dress that I got at Pollux several winters ago along with the feather hair clip that I wore to my cousins wedding.

The night of the event, we entered through the door in the alley after giving our password to the “bouncer”, climbed the stairs, hung our coats up on an old ladder in the hallway and were greeted to a live jazz band playing in the most beautiful, dimly-lit loft. Bin 707, which is hands-down my favorite restaurant in GJ, provided all the food and drinks which were AMAZING. And my darling friend Robin had decorated the whole event.

We were introduced to the idea of the West Slope Supper Club, which will be a pop-up dinner party that happens once in awhile that features local food or drinks. Josh and I had such a fun time and were really happy to be welcomed in on the ground floor of what is going to turn into something amazing. I told Josh, as were were sipping away on our gimlets, that Grand Junction just got at least 10% cooler.

    In today’s digital age, the next time you need something to wear for a fancy cocktail party, try:

    I agree with you about Grand Junction. In my retirement I’ve been researching places for relocation. Grand Junction just moved up a few notches. But of course the number one reason I would move there is that it has one of my favorite yarn shops!
