The first question when considering a vacay is "where do I stay?" And our event starts no differently. We kick off our evening at an MLJ Vacay recommended accommodation, the Loft above Blue Door Pub Lyn-Lake. Enjoy networking with fellow travel lovers over a happy hour catered by France & 44.


After you’ve gotten to know your fellow event attendees, we will head off to our first itinerary destination, a private dining experience at Fig + Farro. A newcomer to the Uptown scene, Fig + Farro’s mission is to create food that both tastes good and does good by focusing on a plant-based diet. They make vegetarian dishes exciting and filling. You will be treated to a complimentary cocktail courtesy of our hosts and enjoy a custom Chef’s Choice menu that highlights a variety of their best dishes.


After dinner, we will wind down the evening with a night-cap at The Lynhall in their private event space, The Linney. The Lynhall is not only a gorgeous neighborhood townhall, it provides entrepreneurs in the food industry a unique opportunity to capture their passion in a state-of-art kitchen studio. We will gather in the studio space and finish with a champagne toast to a perfect evening!

Event Details

  • Invitation

This is a limited invitation event. If more people express interest than spots available, it will be at MLJ Vacay's discretion to select invitees. In submitting this form, you have been added to our invitation request list, but it does not guarantee an invitation. Formal events will be sent for RSVP. We hope to continue hosting events so that everyone has a chance to attend!

  • Food & Beverage

While many elements of the evening will be complimentary and provided as part of the event, drink purchases (unless otherwise stated) at both itinerary stops will be at the obligation of the attendee. Fig + Farro and The Lynhall are known for their drink menus, and we encourage supporting our local partners who have helped make this event possible as able.

  • Transportation

Just like a vacay of your own, we will utilize shared transportation to travel in between our itinerary stops. We have partnered with UberEvents and you will be assigned a ride group upon event arrival. We will have ride captains at the event who will lead your group in transportation. All you'll need to do is remember your group number (don’t worry we will give you a token ) and network with your travel buddies!


  • Parking

There is non-metered parking within a block of the Loft on 31st Ave or Aldrich. Otherwise, there is also a parking ramp one block northwest of the Loft or metered spots off Lyndale or Lake. We encourage carpooling when possible.
