A: The Year began with trips to Dallas, New York and Atlanta Markets to find fabulous new products. We selected many beautiful items to share with our Guests in the Painted Door gift boutique.
Our June event was a ‘Make and Take’ at which Avis demonstrated how to create a Wine Glass Terrarium. It was fantastic to see each person’s individuality in their finished terrarium. As they worked on their projects, we served wine and tasty mixes from our own Painted Door Kitchen.
In the Summer months we traveled to Dallas, New York and Atlanta Markets to again bring a ‘gathering’ of the loveliest and most unique gifts, clothing and décor to Painted Door. This is a favorite time as we look at endless selections of Fall, Winter and Holiday items.
In November we offered over 80 pictures and fixtures at a silent auction. Nonna’s and Painted Door customers browsed and bid on items from Nonna’s history that reminded them of special occasions spent in the restaurant including wedding proposals, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and many other occasions. We loved hearing all of your stories and memories of the restaurant.
We ended the year with a two week celebration and sale called ‘Eat, Drink & Be Merry!’ Guests were treated to punch and snacks as they shopped for very special gifts for Family, Friends and Business Associates.
We look forward to 2018…the beginning of Streetcar Service in Bricktown, as well as construction for Scissortail Park, the new Convention Center and adjoining Omni Hotel. Most of all, we look forward to hearing from You!
please Come and Enjoy
