2020 Charlie Awards
Voting has closed and the three finalists in 12 categories have been selected by their peers for the ninth annual Charlie Awards. The Charlie Awards showcases the exceptional contributions of the Twin Cities food and beverage community in a People’s Choice-style celebration.
Honorees in each category will accept the coveted Charlie Award plate at the entertainment-filled awards ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020, beginning at 3:30 p.m. at the Pantages Theatre (710 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis). The show will culminate with the bestowal of the Lifetime Achievement Award.
After the awards ceremony, the party will continue next door at Seven Steakhouse (700 Hennepin Ave.,
Minneapolis). Festivities will include food prepared by culinary students from ProStart and Saint Paul College led
by Pat Weber from Mise en Place Consulting and last year’s Community Hero, Nathan Sartain of Saint Paul College.
The Charlie Awards provide a chance to celebrate both the diversity in the Twin Cities restaurant community as
well as its excellence. At the same time, the event supports the good work being done by Open Arms, a nonprofit meal-delivery service that prepares and delivers nutritious meals to people fighting life-threatening diseases. Proceeds from the awards program and afterparty go towards Open Arms’ mission.
Tickets for the Charlie Awards show and afterparty are $30 per person. To purchase tickets, call 612-767-3229 or go online at charliesexceptionale.com. Tickets can also be picked up at the Pantages box office.
