Q&A: The Spring Thing Style

Tricia Reina is owner of Tenfold Style and the queen of all the details at The Spring Thing: Modern Mutiny on Friday, March 4 at MCASD Downtown. From the types of flowers at the bar and the lanterns in the lounge, to the color of the napkins at the dinner to the dinner table itself—Tricia is on it.  

Q&A: The Spring Thing's Cicerone

Peter Gutkowski is the certified Cicerone that will be leading The Spring Thing: Modern Mutiny guests on a blind beer tasting adventure during Cocktail Hour. Wondering what a Cicerone is? So were we. MCASD met with Peter to get some details about his trade and what he's got planned for the big night on Friday, March 4 at MCASD Downtown.
