Guests will experience delectable hors d’oeuvres prepared Catering Thyme, musical entertainment by El Jaye Johnson and the Port City All-Stars, and comedy by the internationally renowned comedian A Pinch of Basile.
The festivities continue with the Wine and Chocolate Marketplace on Saturday, January 30 from 11 am to 6 pm and Sunday, January 31 from 12 to 4 pm. The Marketplace features wine samples, signature chocolates and specialty foods, vendors, demonstrations, kids’ activities and much more.
