Last week’s Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Signature Store grand opening was an absolute blast. Mayor Sam Adams assisted Bob Williams with the honors of cutting the ribbon. Lady Bunny, strutting her stuff in a hot mini dress and signature sky-high wig, energized the crowed with fun dance mixes. Even photographer Evrim Icoz and Vibrant Table Event Coordinator Karen Rich took a break to shake a leg. The opening also served as a fundraiser for Q-Center, a welcoming home for Portland’s LBGTQ community, and an example of MG+BW’s commitment to many non-profit organizations that promote equality of all sorts.
With true Southern hospitality, MG+BW selected a generous menu of hip comfort finger-foods: bite-sized meatloaf with garlic mashed potatoes (I LOVE our meatloaf!), petite chicken pot pies, shots of tomato soup with gougère garnish (see below for full menu). Sweets included mini Voodoo doughnuts, customized heart cookies, mini icecream sandwiches and a self-serve hot-chocolate bar (yay, marshmallows!). Signature cocktails consisted of raspberry martinis, white sangria and Mitchelltini, 12-year Macallan “shaken passionately with ice and served frothy.”
Welcome to Portland Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. We “heart” you too!
