Bechtler Museum’s 5th Anniversary Gala

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art is celebrating their 5th anniversary and we were excited to be a part of the gala a few weeks ago! Everyone was dressed to the nines, so of course our food had to match! For the first course we served a trio of soups and designed a card to fit on the plate with the names of the soups, which you can see below! To see more photos, click here to go to the Charlotte Observer’s website. See below for the menu!

  1. I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  2. If an merchandise is modified or deleted,
    a credit score bureau can’t put the disputed info back in your credit score report unless the corporate or person who offered
    the incorrect information to the credit score bureau verifies that the data is, indeed, correct and full.

  3. What this means is that in case you lived in Miami all
    your life and then moved to Anchorage that your credit score
    report would still observe you despite all of your credit score having been issued if you lived in south Florida.
