presents: Lovin’ Summer with Social Expressions
The soiree began at 6pm. Surrounded by the beautiful glass mosaics, guests arrived and were immediately drawn to the signature “Hard Lemonade Stand”.
Sponsored by Sloop Betty Vodka, our classic “sidewalk style” Lemonade Stand welcomed the guests with three flavors: classic lemonade, strawberry lemonade & blueberry lemonade. A perfect refresher for a hot summer evening![caption id="attachment_3140" align="aligncenter" width="458"] Liquor sponsor for the evening, Sloop Betty Vodka[/caption]
