About this event

**PLEASE NOTE EVENT DATE CHANGE - NEW DATE - WEDNESDAY JULY 13th!**


Former Minor League Baseball executives Vic Christopher and Heather LaVine are forerunners in the burgeoning renaissance movement that has elevated the city of Troy, NY over the past several years. Vic and Heather have become known for their keen eye in selecting, purchasing and rehabbing vacant or dilapidated historical buildings and transforming them into eclectic and wildly popular local treasures.

Lucas Confectionary, a wine bar serving natural and organic wines and small plates (noted by both the NY Times and Daily News as a catalyst in the renewed interest in Troy, NY); Peck’s Arcade, a casual fine dining restaurant recently named one of OpenTable’s 100 Hottest Restaurants in America; and Twenty Two Second Street Wine Co., a boutique natural wine shop offering specialty small production vintages.

Join us as Vic and Heather share lessons learned along the road to becoming successful small business owners, visionary restaurateurs and catalysts for change.
