Sunday, April 29th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm at The Stanley Theatre, Utica

Utica, N.Y. (February 5, 2018) – The Stanley Theatre will host the 4th in a series of Fine Food Dining events on Sunday, April 29th, 2018.

Presented this year by The Event Co and The Restaurant Equipment Company, the popular on-stage pairing dinners that raised over $10,000 dollars for the historic theater last year will include some new elements.

As was the case last year, each four-course dinner will be orchestrated by one of the region’s finest chefs. Pairing options have been expanded to allow diners to opt for either wine or craft beer to accompany each course.

Spirits tastings have also been added to the pre-dinner social hour in the Stanley lobby.

Dinner on Sunday, April 29th will be prepared by Executive Chef Jeffrey Daniels and his staff from Daniele of Valley View.

The Social Hour starts at 4pm in The Stanley’s enchanting lobby with wine, craft beer and liquor sampling, along with cheeses and other light food samples from fine local eateries.

​The evening then shifts to the stage for a sumptuous dinner, each course paired with a craft beer or wine from one of the region’s fine craft breweries or wineries. Live music and additional entertainment will accompany the dinner hour.

Tickets for the April 29th Pairing go on sale Monday, Feb. 5 at 10am at The Stanley Box Office or charge-by-phone at 315-724-4000. Advance purchase required by April 23rd. Tickets are $75 to benefit The Stanley.  Both Individual tickets and tables of 8 will be offered.

This event is presented by The EventCo and The Restaurant Equipment Company in partnership with The Stanley, Daniele at Valley View and McCraith Beverages, with sponsor support from WKTV and PJ Green.

EventCo Managing Director Gina Scampone says the combination of talented chefs, world class craft brewers, gifted vinters and community minded sponsors coming together in such a wonderful setting for a good cause reflects the creative community partnership principle she wants involved in all of her company’s events.  “Things are looking up in Utica, and we look forward to staging events that add to the quality of life in and around the city.”
