Tuesday, FlipSidePA kicked off York City Boutique Week with food, fashion and fun. First, I hosted the fashion show portion of the Fall Trends Luncheon at Tutoni's Restaurant on George Street. (Downtown Inc. and Elizabeth and West were really the brains behind this one. I had a blast serving as the emcee though!)

Guests enjoyed Tutoni's Watermelon Gazpacho, Brogue Hydroponics Field Green Salad and mini desserts. Plus, The Beer Ace offered Yards PYNK beer, a champagne-like brew.

In between bites and sips, models wearing the latest fall fashions from local boutiques walked a catwalk. Guests could purchase most of the items at the event.

Then, models strutted to the FlipSidePA Happy Hour at the White Rose Bar and Grill.

There, guests enjoyed free appetizers and discounted drinks from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. provided by White Rose Bar and Grill. The featured specialty drinks included the FlipCider, a hard apple cider cocktail, and the Silk Blouse, a passion fruit pink cocktail.

Guests who came dressed to impress could also step inside our FlipSidePA photo booth. See the photos here.
