Join us at the Hotel Vermont Ice Bar
by TruexCullins, January 16, 2012
Now that winter has arrived in full force, we are getting ready for the biggest event of the season here in our hometown: the Burlington Winter Festival, coming up on Saturday February 4th. Highlights include a snow-carving competition, the family expo at the ECHO center, and the adrenaline-pumping Penguin Plunge.
But the newest event this year at the Winter Festival is being hosted by our friends at the Hotel Vermont (one of our current projects). This would be the Hotel Vermont ICE BAR. Held outside the Courtyard Marriott at 25 Cherry Street, site of the future Hotel Vermont, the Ice Bar is a unique experience with impressive ice sculptures, great food, and Vermont crafted cocktails.
The Ice Bar will be open for two nights, February 3rd and 4th, from 6 to 9pm. Tickets are needed in advance and cost $20 per person. You know you want to go, so head over to this site and buy your tickets now.
This will be a new experience for Burlington, but there have been plenty of successful Ice Bar events in some of our neighboring cities. Last year the event was held at another TruexCullins project: the Portland Harbor Hotel in Portland, Maine. Check out the scene at the Portland Ice Bar from 2010:
