Sarasota: The Crosley Supper Club opens.
- Happy New Year, CCOCers. The new Crosley Supper Club is open, a joint effort of the Powel Crosley Estate Foundation, Manatee County and Milan Catering and Event Design. The venture will help provide the money the foundation uses to preserve the charm and elegance of the Powel Crosley estate at 8374 N. Tamiami Trial in Sarasota.
The Crosley Supper Club is very un-Crosleylike. It's membership-based, with all fees going to the foundation. Each month, the chefs create a four-course dinner with locally-supplied fresh ingredients. Dinner service starts at 6 p.m. followed by late-night entertainment and a cigar-and-brandy bar starting at 8 p.m.. Events finish at 10 p.m.
Dinners offer three choices of dinner entrées and optional wine and bar service. Milan Catering also provides the event management and catering for the foundation's galas. Click New Photos for a preview.
