CRAVE at Woodbury Lakes


CRAVE had a blast at last night’s Girls’ Night Out event held at Woodbury Lakes Mall in Woodbury, MN! The event, which provided attendees with goodie bags, small bites and treats courtesy of CRAVE Catering, tickets to win a shopping spree, and other giveaways, donated all $10 entrance fees to the Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf (CCEFS).

Girls’ Night Out was also a celebration of CRAVE’s upcoming opening at Woodbury Lakes, making it CRAVE’s fifth Minneapolis location to date! The event was held in the actual space where the restaurant is expected to open this Fall 2015. Many attendees were thrilled with the news of the new location, especially those who live and work in St. Paul. We at CRAVE are excited to better serve the East metro area and are appreciative of Woodbury Lakes’ welcome and support.

CRAVE Restaurant in Minneapolis loves giving back to our community and is fortunate enough to partake in events that benefit great, local organizations throughout the Twin Cities. Over a thousand people came out to meet Minnesota Vikings players and coaches at the annual Taste of the Vikings event on November 11, 2013 at Nickelodeon Universe ® in the Mall of America®.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Vikings Children’s Fund Summer Lunch Program through Second Harvest Heartland. This amazing program provides children with meals throughout the summer when school is not in session.

Attendees mingled with Vikings coaches and players while sampling food and wine from over fifteen Twin Cities restaurants. The strolling food and wine event also featured exciting silent auction items and a chance to get autographs and pictures with the team.

CRAVE Restaurant in Minneapolis is excited to dive into another holiday season! Every year, CRAVE Restaurant in Edina teams up with the Galleria and MSP Magazine for a holiday kick off event at the Women’s Club of Minneapolis.

Last Saturday, CRAVE joined over 20 other Galleria restaurants and retailers to provide exclusive first-looks at holiday gifts and fashions in an intimate shopping experience. Guests of the event enjoyed food and beverage sampling, holiday fashions, festive decor and tabletop displays, and a jump on holiday shopping!

This year we were fortunate to include CRAVE Catering as a partner to provide delicious food for the event. Our talented catering department served Cristinis topped with brie and fig compote with fresh lime zest, in addition to vanilla and chocolate cake pops! CRAVE provided samples of the Angry Dragon Martini for several hundred thirsty shoppers. The drink was a smashing success and so was this premier holiday shopping and planning event!

CRAVE Restaurant in Minneapolis hosted our 2nd annual Pink Carpet Event at Muse Event Center on Friday, October 11th.  The Pink Carpet Event was created out of a passion to pursue a cure and provide a premier social engagement for those wanting to help join the fight against breast cancer.

1381576_549020505165150_2038138665_nLocal jewelry designer, Sara Goldfine of SBG Designs, came to CRAVE with the idea of putting on a top quality event to raise funds to fight the disease that has hit very close to home. Her sister, Elly, was diagnosed with the disease at the young age of 38. She underwent a double mastectomy followed by intense chemotherapy. The treatments not only attacked the cancer cells, they also infringed on her confidence and femininity. Elly’s resilient response to this disease inspired Sara to join the fight against breast cancer, and the Pink Carpet Event was born in May of 2012.

This year, Laura Schara and Todd walker hosted the Pink Carpet Event 2013, which transformed Muse Event Center into the perfect pink and chic atmosphere for the celebration. The evening began at 7pm for VIP guests, and included complimentary drinks and food stations, featuring the best Kaskaid Hospitality has to offer. Spectacular appetizers and desserts were provided by CRAVE Restaurant, CRAVE Catering, UNION Fish Market, UNION Rooftop, BLVD Kitchen & Bar, Urban Eatery, and our upcoming concept – Boneyard.

Doors opened for general admission at 9:30pm and guests mingled while enjoying live bands and a vibrant dance floor. The event was a beautiful success, and we’d like to thank all the fabulous people that attended and showed their support!

Last night The Jaguar Land Rover Dealership in Minneapolis held a fantastic event where they unveiled their new dog park on location at the dealership.

This wasn’t just your ordinary event where you invite folks in for a meet and greet. This was a doggie-centric event that included nearly a hundred dogs of all kinds and over 150 people. There was a dog grooming station that provided a free nail trimming service, a ribbon cutting ceremony, and even a full blown doggie fashion show.

In addition to all of the above, they also had Greg Gagne host an auction to give away several incredible packages that were donated to the event. All of the proceeds from the evening went to benefit the Animal Humane Society!

CRAVE Catering provided an incredible spread of food and beverages for the guests. Some of the other very generous sponsors included Loll Designs, Hoigaard’s, Lucy Activewear, Yum! Kitchen and Bakery, Artful Living Magazine, and Adogo Pet Hotels.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported this great event! It was fantastic seeing all the people, and some really great dogs!

On Friday January 13th, CRAVE Restaurant in Coral Gables, Florida had the privilege of catering the Femfessional Networker Event in Coral Gables.

Femfessionals was founded in Miami so of course we think of FemCity Miami as home. FemCity Miami, and the women in our community, sculpted Femfessionals into a national movement. It’s Founding Members provided unconditional support and passion for our vision and we will be forever grateful to those original Fems.

The event was sponsored by Equinox Gym in Coral Gables. The lovely ladies spent the morning at the gym working out in a customized group fitness class organized exclusively just for Femfessionals so by the time they were done with class our fems were very much ready to enjoy some of CRAVE’s healthy and delicious menu delights!

The menu for the day was a delicious and decadent assortment of sushi creations from our one and only Chef Rob, Thai Chicken Nuggets lightly drizzled in a luscious Thai chili sauce (the lovely ladies could not get enough of) Also, to complement our delightful menu for the event we served a beautiful Mediterranean plate with Pita Bread, hummus, olives, and roasted garlic.

Helping our guests plan their special events is one of the things I enjoy the most about my job! I’ll be more than happy to help you organize your event at our beautiful restaurant or offsite! We can cater intimate gatherings as well as larger social or corporate events at your home, office or special venue. Feel free to call me at  305-772-5761 or Email Me to discuss your future private events!
