OSAGE | Ladies night at the Cedar Valley Seminary is looking to become a permanent event.
On Wednesday, Feb. 13, the Cedar Valley Seminary hosted its second Ladies Night, held in the coffee shop. Typically scheduled for the second Thursday of the month, this month’s event was held early due to Valentine’s Day.
The evening is designed to give ladies a “man free” night to gather with girlfriends, nibble appetizers and try the CVS’s monthly signature drink. Ladies Night Out is also intended to foster friendships, good conversation and encourage ladies to gather together to visit about family, community, career and anything else on their minds.
With candlelit tables, and soft music playing in the background, it was a place for ladies to gather with plenty of savory and sweet things to eat, including cheesecake bites, a caramelized onion and bacon dip, BBQ pulled pork sliders, Greek meatballs, and much more. The Cedar Valley Seminary captured an ambiance that was warm, relaxed, casual and inviting.
The appetizer menu is based off the most recent cooking classes held at the Seminary, which gives ladies the opportunity to sample a different fare of food than what would typically be served at Ladies Night at a bar.
February’s signature drink was a pink lemonade and wine mix served with a strawberry garnish, designed to reflect a Valentine’s Day feel.
“We do occasionally have plans for live music, said Deana Chisholm, manager, “but we’d prefer to give out the complementary appetizers rather than paying a musician to perform. The ladies really prefer the food and visiting with one another.”
