WHERE: Black Bottle
WHAT: In the most recent shopping-meets-drinking news: Sustainable handbag company Cuyana brings its collection of inspired leather totes, handmade clutches, and bright travel pouches to chic Belltown gastro-tavern Black Bottle. The shopping event/happy hour will feature the brand's signature pieces alongside custom cocktails and light bites.
San Fran–based Cuyana founders Shilpa Shah and Karla Gallardo travel the world in search of high-quality materials and traditional craftsmanship (the Spring line is inspired by Mexican embroidery) for each limited-edition collection of handbags and accessories. In turn, Cuyana donates a portion of profits to charity:water, a nonprofit that brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
Knock some back with the evening's hosts, style bloggers Cassandra LaValle of Coco + Kelley and Bradford Crowder of The Bedlam of Beefy, and enter to win a Cuyana handbag. All attendees will also receive 10 percent off any purchase.
WHEN: Tuesday, April 30 from 5 to 8. RSVP online.
