Come along as a buyer or seller to Sunny Hills, Chancery Lane in Soho for some vintage goods as well as upcycled and eco-friendly products. Expect music and a friendly community vibe. And expect to find lots of pre-loved treasures. Ticketflap
Valentine’s Day at Morton’s of Chicago The Steakhouse
Upscale steakhouse chain Morton’s of Chicago is giving Cupid a helping hand with a Valentine’s Day engagement package (HK$29,888) that includes a Piaget Rose ring, set dinner for eight guests (including a personalised menu) and a champagne toast. For one night only (February 14, of course) the proposers’ nearest and dearest will gather in Morton’s private dining room overlooking Hong Kong Harbour, to watch the proposal. The ring, by the way, is 18K rose gold, inspired by a real flower called “Yves Piaget Rose”, named after Piaget’s fourth-generation scion Yves Piaget. Fingers crossed she says yes.
