Saturday December 13, 5 pm

Back by popular demand, our Holiday Gathering brings you all the 19th-century charm of the Thomas Cole house with warm cocktails and savory nibbles from 5 to 7 pm followed by a dinner at one of several special nearby homes where you will sit around the table with old friends and new acquaintances. The cocktail portion is an affordable $25 per person. Cocktails and dinner is $125. Seating is extremely limited at the dinners. Please call Sheri for availability: 518-943-7465 ext.4.
