Shop and Dine at The Turn Sports Bar

First Shop and Dine at The Turn Sports Bar at Balboa – Wed. March 9, 5-8 PM

Ashley and Brandon Kogut, owners of The Turn Sports Bar at Balboa Clubhouse in Hot Springs Village, are co-hosting a brand new and exciting event. Venturing on a journey into the unknown, they are trying something fresh and new and teaming up with local artisans and crafters to co-host what should be a winning combination of shopping and good food. This is an effort to showcase and encourage local artisans and crafters, while also illustrating what The Turn is all about – which is delicious food, friendly service, and customer satisfaction. This happening is called the first Shop and Dine at the Turn Sports Bar and is the brainchild of Judy Mullen, who is the event organizer.

Judy is a local crafter who paints pillows and was looking for an outlet where she could showcase and sell her goods. Explaining how this idea was born, Judy said, “we were at The Turn Sports Bar at Balboa one night for dinner about a month ago, and I was thinking how to utilize the space they have. We owned Judy’s Kitchen and Judy’s Just Desserts in Pennsylvania. Thinking out of the box is always in the back of my mind.” She exclaimed, “I thought this idea would be a win-win for all of us.”

Once Judy had the go-ahead from the Koguts, she earnestly began recruiting local vendors and organizing the event. While there are few ground rules for the vendors, Judy has asked them to support The Turn while they are there promoting their wares. The Koguts are generously providing free display space. There will be a dedicated server for the vendors, keeping them fed and hydrated while they are working.
