There are only two 2020 Boca Bacchanal events left to go and they are this week!
Six Vintner Dinners will be held on Friday evening, March 6, 2020–from 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.–at five elegant homes and at one new restaurant, Rex Baron—in Boca Raton. These memorable Vintner Dinners will offer guests the opportunity to feast on sumptuous five-course meals, created by award-winning chefs, working in tandem with acclaimed vintners. The dinners will provide guests with the ultimate dinner party experience.
Also, for the first time in the event’s history, a Vintner Dinner will be sponsored by a national restaurant group. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based Rex Gryphon Restaurant Group will hold their Vintner Dinner at their unique REX (Restaurant, Entertainment, Xperience) destination: Rex Baron Survivors Kitchen/VRex Lounge located at Town Center at Boca Raton.
The casual, upscale interactive, multi-sensory experiential meeting place, dining haven, watering hole, and hi-tech VR escape lounge is “where the art of food meets the art of survival.”
