Eat, drink, shimmer and be merry as the Women’s Professional Network of Greater Cincinnati wines and dines the general public this Friday at the Sparkle Holiday Party. Come sporting your most glistening garments for a chance to win an array of spectacular door prizes, including holiday gifts, candles, decorations and other sparkling things like jewelry. Pamper yourself at the gourmet spreads with hummus, Essencha teas, cinnamon coffee cake and more as you mingle and network your way around the abundance of local artists and the gifts that they have in store for you
Sip on tantalizing wines while you view Libby Pearce’s 35mm photographs and Spencer Van der Zee’s visual art. Add more sparkle to your outfit, or purchase some bling for a friend, with creative trinkets by Iza Mcilvain, Designs by Behin and Lily in Flux. Keep a loved one warm this winter with textiles by Amanda Mastruserio and Katie Davidson. Top your present off with a handmade card from Amanda Hogan and Tracy Makanani. Drink some, eat some, make new friends and cross some items off your holiday shopping list, all in one night! Or as hostess and CityBeat contributor Liz Wu says, “It's easy and fun — you just sip and shop!” Admission is $10 and includes free wine tasting and appetizers. Sparkle Holiday Party is held Friday at 6 p.m. at the Plum Court Wine Room, 241 W. Court St., Downtown.
