YES, THAT IS CORRECT…THE TIME HAS COME THE WALRUS SAID TO TALK OF MANY THINGS, LIKE FOOD AND FUN AND WINE GALORE AND CRAZY HAPPENINGS!!

ENJOY the vast selection of “Drink me” white, red, and blush wines from our Moscatos, Rieslings, Pinot Grigios, Sauvignon Blancs, our blush White Zinfandels, to our Shiraz, Malbecs, Merlots, and Cabernet Sauvignons!!….and if that alone doesn’t tempt your palette, this menu should do the trick!

Our rabbit hole will feature a variety of baked bries with bread slices, our “Eat Me” biscuits and cookies, vegetables with dips, hummus with pita, and delicious couscous!

Moving to enchanted forest, you will enjoy AMAZING Mussels, crab macaroni and cheese, tuna cakes, cheese dips and spreads with crackers and a rice and peanut salad!

The Mad Hatters tea party will of course feature a very merry unbirthday cake, petit fors, southwestern chicken roll-ups, finger sandwiches, fresh fruit and melons!

As you can see, this theme lends itself to endless fun and opportunity for trivia and characterizations connected to the story. If you truly want to immerse yourself into the culture of the evening, be sure to take some time between now and July 25 to brush up on potential trivia opportunities by becoming familiar with both the Disney animated version of the story in addition to Tim Burton’s slightly darker take on the classic tale! Feel free to dress as your favorite character, or provide some creative element to be a part of the evening!

As you follow that crazy pink rabbit down the rabbit hole at 770 Kimball Place, you will “fall” into our Old Oaks version of the theme based on the “Alice in Wonderland” classic! Your adventure for the evening will be focused on four primary locations within this story. Start your night off by seeing some of your favorite or not-so-favorite characters as you wine and dine and start your journey through our Old Oaks Wonderland.

As you travel to the enchanted forest, you will be transported even deeper into our story and the eccentricities that accompany these characters, sights, sounds, and flavors!

The fog begins to lift and you will travel to the home of the mad hatter for the very merry unbirthday party. You will experience the zany, crazy tea party filled with great food and beverage, and of course more trivia, games, prizes, and FUN!

The tea party continues to amp up the fun and our parade of characters make their way to the court of the Red Queen! Behind the walls of the red queen’s court you will see the work of painting the roses red, as well as all of the other royal elements that come together to make this a spectacular location for eating, drinking, and dancing the night away!

As you can see, this theme lends itself to endless fun and opportunity for trivia and characterizations connected to the story.
