Christmas

Festival of Trees Cocktail Preview

When: Fri., Nov. 20, 7 p.m. 2015

The great thing about America is that from Nov. 1 until Dec. 26 it’s Christmastime. Colorful lights, evergreen wreaths, shiny silver stars, and red-and-green everything is welcomed with so much gusto that we forget that with the Yuletide comes that horrible thing called winter. Regardless, Christmas is pretty and the city of Rochester makes it even prettier. Their Festival of Trees features more than 80 trees, wreaths, stockings, and tablescapes and this cocktail preview allows you the opportunity to take some of them home with you. There will be a strolling dinner from Kruse & Muer restaurant and the Royal Park Hotel. Beverages come from Fieldstone Winery and Rochester Mills Beer Co. The Festival of Trees opens to the public on Saturday, Nov. 21.

Price: $50; $80 per couple
