|Exotic meats and cheeses starred in last year's lavish|
opening party on the Crown & Anchor patio.
These photos are from last year's soiree, which featured a huge banquet table of charcuterie, a particular speciality at the Central House, with a splendid variety of cured meats and specialty cheeses from around the world. TheYearRounder has chosen it as the best charcuterie assortment in town, having sampled many restaurants' offerings.
|These tasty grapefruit and blueberry martinis are among|
the Crown's popular list of specialty cocktails.
This party is also a chance for us to sample some of the Crown's specialty cocktails, with several offered tonight at special prices, and perhaps a few wines to try from sommelier Peter Miscikoski's award-winning wine list.
|Lorraine will open her restaurant on Tuesday this week,|
to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Lorraine's is open for dinner Thursday through Sunday at this time of year, but this week she'll open the restaurant at 2 PM on Tuesday to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Now with a full liquor license, Lorraine is once again squeezing beautiful, fresh limes for her amazing margarita. Tapas will be available from 4 to 5:30 PM, when dinner will start.
Get into the spirit and wear a costume, or simply don your sombreros and huaraches. Lorraine promises a free gift for those who dress for the occasion.
|The Red Inn party is one of the town's best season openers.|
