One of Boca’s seminal wine and food weekends returns to the Boca Raton Resort & Club this year with more events. Boca Bacchanal had added Bubbles & Burgers on April 4 at Boca Beach Club. Five Vintner dinners are April 5 in private homes.
The Grand Tasting, the most attended event by the public, has moved from Mizner Park Amphitheater. It will be held in the Grand Hall at the Resort on April 6. A VIP had been added at the Resort’s marina. For all Bacchanal tickets, click the link.
“This is our 17th year so we’re changing it up,” said Mary Csar, executive director of the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum. The Bacchanal is their biggest fundraiser. “We want to keep it exciting, and when we started, a lot of the events were at the hotel,” she added.
Heather Shaw hosted a kickoff at Saks Fifth Avenue Boca Raton in Town Center Tuesday evening. Shaw is both co-chair of the Bacchanal this year with Samantha Vassallo and a Saks v.p. and manages the store.
They both ceremonially announced the pairings for the vintner dinners including visiting chefs at the well-attended Bacchus Beckons.
Wine and champagne stations were set up in Saks fashion galleries and guests munched on passed hors-d’oeuvres.
Saks had two makeup tables and makeup artists set up for the ladies of course.
