THE SCENE: Leland Stone, owner of Stone Standard, hosted a dinner in honor of love and wine this past Valentine’s Day in San Antonio. Guests were invited into the newly renovated Roosevelt Library, now the new showroom space for his company.
THE VIBE: A historic edifice in the Southtown neighborhood on Roosevelt Avenue, the Roosevelt Library was built in 1929. Regentrified and evolving into a chic showroom with Stone Standard products adorning the walls as pieces of art, the building is a tasteful blend of the vintage and the new. A perfectly romantic venue in which to enjoy an elegant dinner on Valentine’s Day, the library was struck by the work of Cupid himself as the downstairs room held 50 guests at a continental-style table painted with pedals. Generous sponsors of the evening were Vinously Speaking, Crave Market, Sanderson Antiques and Design, Frost 321 and KBK to the Trade. Guests were entertained by a solo contemporary dance performance and poetry readings in spirit of the evening’s theme, Oenophilia. What better way to spend the day of love than immersed in wine, nibbles, art, and architecture?
