This weekend: A Galentine’s rooftop event
Although Valentine’s Day has passed, Lorri Lofton, creator of Charlotte Brunch Festival, wants to give women a chance to mix and mingle.
On Saturday, Lofton, in partnership with Chandon Gardens Spritz, will host Galentine’s Rooftop Pop Up, a food event at Aura Rooftop in Uptown Charlotte.
“It’s a beautiful spot, and it’s a chance to come, dress cute and take pictures,” Lofton said of Aura Rooftop. “This would also be a great time to just come meet new people and celebrate.”
For $40 general admission, participants get two sample-sized menu items and a glass of wine. Additional food and drinks can be purchased, Lofton said.

The rooftop will be covered with a tent to ensure warmth, and a photographer will be there.
Lofton hosted her first pop-up food event at the Waterman Fish Bar in November. She said she will host other events leading up to her annual Charlotte Brunch Festival later this year.
“I want more people to be familiar with the CLT brunch festival name and just follow along with the brand,” she said.
