When: Sunday, December 12,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $45.00 per person

Where: Travelers Rest
Route 100
Ossining, NY 10562

Put on your glad rags and come join us for an elegant multi-group holiday event destined to be truly memorable. We have booked the fabulous Travelers' Rest centrally located in Ossining (on the Millwood border just 2.5 miles off the Taconic and fairly close to 684), known for their award winning dazzling decorations and incredible food.

What better venue to celebrate the Holiday Season than one that's been decking the halls since 1975? Starting around December 1, this Continental-German restaurant and 19th century coach stop sets up a dazzling holiday display that includes 55 lighted figures, seven Christmas trees, 100 wreaths, a 6 foot tall gingerbread house, and hundreds of thousands of lights (including an $11,000 December electric bill).

We'll start with a cocktail hour featuring a selection of cold hors d'oeuvres while we mix and mingle and happily sip in their beautifully decorated ballroom.

We'll follow it with an gourmet meal that's bound to please even the most discriminating palate in between working up an appetite on the dance floor.
