The ADF-commissioned Elvis Everywhere is dendy/donovan projects’ latest work. “America is Elvis Presley–the most beautiful, talented, rebellious nation in the history of Earth. And now, you’re in your Vegas years. You’ve squeezed yourself into a white jumpsuit, you’re wheezing your way through ‘Love Me Tender’ and you might be about to pass away bloated on the toilet. But you’re still the King.” – John Oliver

Picnic en Blanc – A Bastille Day Celebration @ Heron's Haven
Jul 14 @ 4:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Once again we gather in the spirit of liberté, égalité and fraternité to celebrate Bastille Day. Our venue this year is a lovely 10-acre estate on a pond where we will gather for a Picnic en Blanc on Friday, July 14th, beginning at 4:30pm.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted with pain (bread, not actual pain), charcuterie, crudité and, of course, vin. Nibble on these culinary delights to fuel your creativity as you decorate your picnic space, remembering that white is de rigueur.

During the evening, we will have a Blind Bubbles challenge. You will sample three sparkling wines. Can you guess the region and grape?

Dress with éclat, remembering that head-to-toe white is the evening’s theme.

Registrees will receive an email with details on what to bring, etc.
