Desert Spoon Infuses Hospitality and History Into Monthly Cocktail Parties

On the first Sunday of every month, Cal Lundmark and Blaise Faber invite friends and acquaintances into their home, transforming the Encanto-area duplex into Desert Spoon. Don't get any funny ideas, though: the events, which include a spirit tasting, class, three-course dinner, and a cocktail party to celebrate, aren't some underground (and illegal) speakeasy. Lundmark and Faber are doing it all for the sake of their love of hospitality and craft cocktails--and, to be totally clear, for free.
