Blending traditional recipes with cosmopolitan decor, Sawatdee St. Paul introduces diners to familiar dishes of pad thai and pad see ew, as well as authentic meals of whole roast duck and yellow curry pattaya crab. Guests enjoy Sawatdee's smorgasbord of southeast Asian delicacies spiced to preference; chefs promise to prepare nearly any dish at spice levels ranging from the intense heat of an erupting island volcano to the comparably tolerable mildness of a baby's tantrum.

The Perfect Wedding Show inspires brides-to-be and professional wedding planners with demos and information from cake designers, caterers, florists, and other wedding specialists. Guests can watch models swathed in white sashay down a runway aisle during the fashion show, or cruise vendor booths to interview photographers, book entertainment, and decide who the groom should be. Past vendors have included local and national specialists such as Mary Kay's Bridal, The Cakebox Bakery, and Savvi Formalwear.
