Hi Friends!!  Today we are super excited to share "what's up" with the latest zesty world and unless you have been living under a rock, you should have heard about our Zesty Friendsgiving!! It was a huge success!! Not only was it a warm night filled with good food, drinks, music, photos and friends- but we raised almost 4000 buckaroos for such a great organization - Family Care Network. We were able to raise these high funds with such an intimate event because of our amazing community donating. EVERYTHING, that's right, everything was donated so that we were able to give 100% of ticket sales to FCNI. A big THANK YOU to all our amazing vendors involved, we can't thank you enough- from the bottom of your heart. This night would not have happened without YOU.

We can't wait for the next Zesty Pop Up, grab your tickets now and save a seat for Feb 17th!!
