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.
The culinary team at Common Roots Cafe believes that the best way to create a welcoming restaurant is to fully embrace local flavor in every sense of the word. Even the interior speaks to this mission?reclaimed barn wood makes up the dining room's floorboards and tabletops, the counter is composed of recycled cardboard, and the air is one-hundred percent Minnesotan. The overall effect is one of casual warmth, an atmosphere that makes the cafe an ideal spot for guests to chew on eclectic, yet accessible, cuisine and relax with a choice of 10 local craft beers.
The menu itself also bursts with hometown pride, highlighting local organic and sustainable ingredients. As much as half of the restaurant's food comes from farms located within 250 miles of Minneapolis, while some produce is picked right outside the door at the cafe's urban garden. And since the selection of ingredients alters with the seasons, the chefs adapt their dishes each month to showcase their fresh flavors. Previous offerings have included redfish tacos with jicama slaw, mac 'n' cheese with local cheddar, and house-made tagliatelle pasta topped with a hearty bison bolognese sauce. Bites are complemented with sips from a drink list featuring wines?many made from organic grapes?and local beers. And, in the unlikely event that diners leave any food on their plates, the scraps are carefully composted to continue the cafe's green production cycle.
The Photo Booth Group bolsters bashes by delivering and setting up photo booths that fit up to 16 hard-partying subjects. Their open-air style booths?not enclosed by curtains?allow for larger group shots than traditional enclosed booths. Packages come with props, digital files, and unlimited prints that only take 20 seconds to print out, along with an on-site attendant.
Uppercut Boxing Gym offers an old-school boxing-gym vibe amid top-notch facilities. The classes, which include necessary equipment and boxing gear, help students boost self-confidence and full-body fitness while honing techniques. After a mandatory introductory class, students will have six more classes with the skilled staff of piñata-pummeling instructors, who will teach participants how to properly pound glib potatoes into deliciously mashed goodness. Acting as reinforcement for the jabs, uppercuts, and crafty pants-pulling is a one-month membership, which includes unlimited access to weights, gym equipment, and everything else the gym has to offer.
Third-generation barbecue master Willie J. Bridgeforth III, owner of Willie B.'s Memphis BBQ Catering, has traveled from Mississippi to Memphis learning to prepare authentic southern barbecue for catered events. The business-luncheon menu ($9–$12/person) boasts five combo options with seasoned meat that marinates for 24 hours, smokes for eight hours with three woods, is basted with an 18-ingredient sauce, and scored a 1430 on the SATs. The combos sate luncheon-goers with two side dishes, including creamy coleslaw, Memphis mac 'n' cheese, or Susie Q.'s southern baked beans. Generous helpings of cornbread help sop up leftover sauce from crispy chicken, pork chops, or racks of pork ribs that can form the centerpiece of a corporate get-together or post-LARPing dragonfeast.
