Hope Rotary Club is sponsoring the community’s first-ever Martini Mingle next month.

The event at 293 Wallace Street Restaurant is modeled after a similar event held annually in Chilliwack.

The staff will judge martini recipes emailed to hiro@293wallace.com by Nov. 7 and pick the top five to present at the Martini Mingle.

Everyone who purchases a ticket will be able to vote for their favourite martini. The winner receives a trophy and dinner for two at 293 Wallace Restaurant.

“It’s somewhere fun to go for a gala event,” said Hope Rotary Club member Hondo Stroyan. “It’s fun to get dressed up in your nice clothes once in a while and try something different that’s new. They do it in Chilliwack and it’s very successful there.”

Tickets are $25, which includes the five martini tastings, or unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, and appetizers. There will also be a regular drink menu and limited appetizer menu available.

The Martini Mingle runs from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on Nov. 13. Tickets are available at 293 Wallace Street Restaurant or through Stroyan at 604-316-7755. Partial proceeds benefit the Hope Rotary Club.

“We’ve had great support from the Rotary Club ever since we first started the restaurant,” said Hiro Takeda, chef and owner of 293 Wallace Street Restaurant.

“Providing an opportunity to come together to do something for this town was kind of the motive behind it.”

Organizers are hoping to make Martini Mingle an annual event in Hope if there’s enough interest.
