ABOUT THIS MEAL

The holiday partying may be history - but your appetite for great food, delicious drinks, mellow music and interesting people is still here. Why not indulge it at our place? We'll be serving appetizers and desserts, sangria, mulled cider and more PLUS the music of Doug Lalli, an award-winning jazz pianist who will be your co-host. There's plenty of space to eat and chat as you listen to the lively sounds coming from "the bandstand" in the sun room.

ON THE MENU

Antipasto, Cheese tray and more
Dessert

Finger food at its finest! A variety of cheeses, crisp vegetables in a savory dressing and a hearty assortment of Italian meats and condiments including artichokes, smoked clams and more. We'll also have a cheese tray, some hot snacks and a few surprises everyone will love.

The ultimate comfort dessert - Brown Betty
Dessert

Crisp, fresh apples baked into a heavenly concoction that's sweet and tart, buttery and tangy - all at once. Topped with vanilla ice cream for the perfect contrast of a hot baked treat and ice cold confection.

Cheese cake

Rich, luscious and sensational. The perfect way to end a meal and to begin your week.

Wendy it was inspiring to meet you and delightful to engage in such meaningful conversation. Thank you for providing a safe space for expression, along with delightful bites and some sweet jazz. I hope to cross paths again soon.

What a wonderful introduction to the Meal Sharing experience! Wendy and Paul were welcoming and relaxed hosts, offering great food, a DELICIOUS sangria, and live piano music courtesy of Paul. And just as I'd hoped, I met cool people and enjoyed engaging conversation. I'm looking forward to my next Meal Share...maybe a Jazz Brunch, Wendy..? :)
