Postino East - First Look!
With anticipation hitting a fever pitch, Upward Projects will kick the doors open a few days early for a "first look" of Postino East (302 N. Gilbert Road, Gilbert. 480-632-6363, www.postinowinecafe.com). The sister project of Arizona's original wine café will host the initial glimpse on Saturday, March 17th from 2-5pm. Open to the public, the event will benefit Gilbert Public School's partnership with Arizona Brainfood (www.azbrainfood.org), a partnership that discreetly provides a backpack of food to feed hungry school children on the weekends. For a nominal donation towards this worthy cause ($25/adults, $10/kiddos at the door), Gilbert residents and those that make the trek out East will be treated to a benevolent afternoon of wine, bruschetta, live music and neighborhood family fun.

The Gilbert gathering will also offer friends, neighbors and do-gooders a first crack to experience the historically-relevant 2,500 square foot Grainbelt space that has been transformed by Upward Projects using a little urban planning expertise. Incorporating iconic design elements from the original Arcadia Post Office location that opened 11 years ago, the contemporary space will offer the most versatile layout yet, including an indoor-outdoor bar, wrap-around patio and green space for community events.
"Postino East is an urban space in a suburban place, so we designed it to provide a sense of community," says Managing Partner Tory DeMarce. "Gilbert Public Schools has been doing the very same thing for a long time, and is ultimately the foundation for community in the East Valley. We want to do all we can to support their efforts and join their positive movement."
