Rare Pair Food and Wine Pairing
A Night to Remember
Saturday, November 14, 2015

The evening was right out of a novel. For one night only, the Prallsville Mills was transformed into a 1920s-style Speakeasy for an exquisite food and wine pairing event. From the stunning classic car parked out front to the gifted jazz musicians inside, to the period attire worn by so many of the guests, the Rare Pair fundraiser kept in the spirit of the times - and was a roaring good time!

"He threw all those parties hoping she would wander in some night."

"Lie to me by the moonlight. Do a fabulous story."

"Can't repeat the past? Why of course you can!"

"And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy."

"And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy."

"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
