Last Thursday, October 25th, Wilderness Ridge hosted its first themed Halloween party-the Speakeasy Soiree and it was a good time had by all who attended. Everyone came dressed in their best 1920's attire...lots of flappers, feathers and pearls and men dressed in dapper suits topped off with fedoras and suspenders. There were bartenders on hand to make authentic classic cocktails, while our banquet chef, Rachel, made various hors d'oeuvres guests were able to snack on while taking a break from dancing. The dance floor was full most of the night with the DelRay Ballroom providing dance lessons. Wilderness Ridge named John Tavlin best dressed. He pulled off a very convincing "Al Capone" and even brought with him a violin case Al Capone was known to carry. It was a very fun evening for all who attended--we already can't wait til next year's themed Halloween party!
