This annual gala for Soo Vac is pretty much the Scene + Be Scene event amongst Scene + Be Scene events. Not only is the host committee a who’s who in the Twincy arts and culture world—Lori BarberoChris Larson, Kriss Zulkosky, Masami Kawazato, among other notable creatives—the sponsors list is on the same level—Chowgirls, French Meadow, 2 Gingers, MNArtists, and more. So, yeah, we expect to have a great time. We also expect to see and silently bid on incredible artwork from around fifty of our area’s best visual artists, an assembly even more impressive than the hosts and sponsors. Saturday, 7 PM. $35-50. —Taylor Carik
