Sorel is ready for winter, even if we're not. The always reliable; increasingly fashionable (wait 'till you see our December issue!) boot company is putting on a party tonight and tomorrow at the Uptown Columbia store.
Tonight: Sorel Style Soiree with a look at fall trends, fashion for Atmosfere boutique, eats from Lucia's, libations from Local Steel Toe Brewing and Morgan Creek Vineyard and tunes by DJ Jonathan Ackerman. 6 to 9 p.m.
Saturday: Live Beats, Local Eats and Free Treats. See the latest winter styles, win prizes from Sorel and Columbia and sample neighborhood cuisine from Chino Latino, Il Gato, Cafeteria and Burger Jones. DJ Jonathan Ackerman returns. 1 to 8 p.m.
