Hop in the wayback machine for our Jan. 22 “Retro Dinner”

OK, so here we are at the cusp of a new year…starting fresh, moving forward into whatever the future holds…but wait? What’s that you say? You like taking the occasional diversion into the past? You’re counting down the days until the final season of Mad Men? You enjoy dining old-school and sipping the kind of cocktails Don Draper knocked back at home (and, yes, when he was at work, all too often)? Well, if that’s what turns you on, have we got a dinner for you!

Join us Wednesday, January 22 at 6:30 p.m. for our Retro Dinner—a blast to the past that’ll make you feel like it’s the ’60s again. From dishes to drinks, our menu is five courses of throwback treats:

First Course

Cocktail: A Furlong Too Late

Second Course
Swedish Veal Meatball-Stuffed Mushroom En Croûte

Cost of this trip back in time is $45 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Don’t miss your opportunity to step into the past with us—call 216.481.9635 and make your prepaid reservation now!  You may even want to dress appropriately: dig those old dresses, suits, shoes and hats out of the closet (or your parents’ or grandparents’ closet) and get your vintage fashion look on so you can enjoy time traveling in style! Either way, save your spot now, and join us for a dinner party like they just don’t make ’em anymore (except at the Bistro!).
