The Young Friends of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County is launching a new event series that is sure to be the talk of the town. Called “Cocktails in Paradise,” the young professionals will head to a different restaurant each month and sip on signature cocktails, all while enjoying the company of fellow history buffs.
For the series’ first stop, the Young Friends will head to Delray Beach’s historical oasis, the Sundy House, on September 19 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Built by Delray Beach’s first mayor in 1902, the one-acre property, complete with lush tropical garden, has been converted into a quaint boutique hotel with one of the best restaurants in town. For the first Cocktails in Paradise event, Executive Chef Lindsay Autry will create a signature cocktail perfectly suited for the locale and hors d’oeuvres for guests to enjoy.
Cocktails in Paradise will be a monthly event, and the date and location of October’s installment will be announced at the Sundy House event. The gathering will take place at a different region of the county each month, celebrating the historical diversity in our slice of paradise. Stay tuned for future dates and locales.
