Grand Point North. What an incredible weekend.
This past weekend was a homecoming on many different levels. Along with Grace Potter’s return to her home state, the crowd was treated to 3/4 of a Phish reunion with headliner Trey Anastasio inviting long-time band members Mike Gordon and Paige McConnell on stage. Potter, Anastasio and Gordon even closed the pre-encore with Phish’s Water in the Sky. It was truly a wonderful way to pay tribute to Burlington and all of their loyal fans. With acts such as Dawes, Joseph and Vermont locals Barika, Smalltalker, Lake Superior, SnakeFoot, The Welterweight, Eastern Mountain Time, Henry Jamison and Troy Millette & Dylan Gombas, Burlington was a special place to be this past weekend.
We were especially excited to introduce Burlington to our Grand Point North-inspired cocktails including the “Ooh La La” and “Nothing But The Bourbon.” Thank you to those who stopped by to chat with us and try our cocktails. We were beyond grateful to be a part of this annual Vermont staple and meet so many enthusiastic supporters of our mission. Keeping it local and supporting our small, yet inventive state is what it’s all about.
With summer-like weather, an all-star lineup, local food and smiling faces, this weekend was the perfect culmination to Summer. Oh and did we mention the sunset?
