'Bar Carts and Boudoirs '16'

Posted

Connecting with Pink Aid Long Island to offer a private party in our historic 1700's outbuilding that once housed farm equipment…and today, is the inspiration and studio for this luxury Home and Garden website.

With much appreciation of a broad culinary palate and interest in harnessing our native resources and talents, TheBarn will be available to 30 guests in the spring or fall for 2 hours of savory treats created by our in-house chef and fine wine.  Go to PinkAid.org then 'Bar Carts and Boudoirs'LI, get tickets and then Unique Experiences to bid. 

Good LUCK!
