Our theme for this dinner is initiative – exploring ways we can push ourselves past our comfort zone to create, achieve, and do the things we strive for.

As always, the medium will be food, conversation, and beverages.  Drinks will be paired with each course; for this reason we strongly recommend taking a rideshare, like Uber or Lyft, so you can fully enjoy the experience.

Tonight, we serve you.

Join us downtown in the Arts District as we guide you through five courses honoring the best of spring’s produce. The evening’s dishes will be paired with cocktails and beverages as selected by Halycent. The company’s founders will be present to walk you through the pairing choices.

This will be a sensory dinner, so along with smell, taste, and sight we are delighted to have music curated to each course.

We are delighted to be of service to you. We kindly ask that you leave your ego at the door and bring an open mind; we will not accommodate dietary restrictions.
