Summer Soiree: We Want the Funk

Lawrenceville boutique Von Walter & Funk kicks off its Summer Social Series Friday on its renovated patio.

Von Walter & Funk is taking happy hour to a whole new (and stylish) level.

The eclectic home décor and lifestyle boutique in Lawrenceville is kicking off its Summer Social Series from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday.

The party is taking place at the store’s recently renovated boho-chic back patio, which features a plethora of palm trees and pink flamingos, all tastefully done, of course.

If you can’t get there this Friday, don't worry; the get-togethers will take place one a month throughout the summer. Each event will feature music and a one-of-a-kind cocktail created by a “celebrity” mixologist. The boutique will remain open during the party. 

This month’s bartender is Joe Bacharach of Duncan St. Dinners, a dinner series featuring a five-course meal with complimenting beer, wine or cocktail pairings. Twice a month, the dinners take place in the Observatory Hill home of chefs Dan Rodriguez and Kendyl Ryan.

Von Walter & Funk specializes in items for the home and garden and also sells apothecary items and fine papers.

Fittingly as they host their first soiree, Von Walter & Fun co-owner Shawn Aversa also offers a variety of unique and vintage barware pieces.
