April 1, 2019By Susan Nieder Acunto, & Karen Gens
EAT -The Society Cafe at the Walker Hotel. Take advantage of the scrumptious and sensibly priced prix-fixe breakfast or lunch (which includes a glass of good vino!) offered at this hidden gem.

after for a reception with the opera singers. Both are included in the concert price.
