What: Opening party
Where: FM Kitchen & Bar Montrose
The shovel: The comfort food restaurant opened its second location in June, but no opening is really official until a facility has a big party and fundraiser. At the FM Kitchen bash there was music, the opening game of the NFL season and of course specialties and drinks.
A well-dressed crowd of young professionals nibble on FM burgers, fried chicken sliders, wings and churros while enjoying cocktails and local craft beers from Saint Arnold and Eureka Heights. Just in time for the football season, the restaurant presented its huge 96-inch projection screen.
FM Kitchen operating partner Jason Mok greeted the crowd and opened a raffle with prizes from liquor brands and other sponsors. All told, the event raised over $ 1,000 through the Cajun Navy Relief for Hurricane Ida recovery efforts.
