What: Sneak peek at The General Public.

Where: CityCentre.

The scoop: A few days before the official opening and with champagne flowing, Kyle Noonan and Josh Sepkowitz, partners in the restaurant group FreeRange Concepts, welcomed a bevy of serious partying types for an early look at their "upscale, spirited restaurant and bar with a gourmet menu." Their gastropub concept, launched in San Antonio, joins FreeRange Concepts' stable of properties including Bowl & Barrel, Mutts Canine Cantina, The Rustic, and Local Fare.

Guests were plied with menu samples and crafted cocktails including Dr. Funk, the Four Thieves, the Caipirinha and the Rusky Rose while relishing the party atmosphere that Noonan and Sepkowitz plan on maintaining.

Who: Eric Salzer, Jessica Sepkowitz, Kevin Chin, Ernie Manouse, Ellie Bergman, Catherine and Vic Smith, Eric Sandler, Jackie Fair, Christine Brinkley, Michael Garfield, Marshall Henry, Karen Henry, and Rose and Jim Murnane.
