It’s almost time for May Day up here where it’s still snow on the ground. I know. Ridiculous right? Nonetheless, it shall still be an awesome Wappu – or Vappu or Labour Day or May Day – consisting of grilling, sparkling wine, brunches, friends and sunshine. Yes, we are that optimistic.
Yet, what May Day really stands for, is the beginning of the summer. The flowers are blooming, the skirts are getting shorter and the terraces are opening with frivolity filling the air. It’s one of the best times of the year. The time when the visual, experiential and culinary gourmand comes out in all of us.

Just remember: when the occasion calls for it you gotta suit up!
