I won’t spoil anything that happens on Downton Abbey, but the grand finale episode in February will be cause for a party and a fun night in Erie’s historic abbey. Well not really — it’s the Watson Curtze mansion on West Sixth Street — but it is historic.
On Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013, patrons at Watson Curtze will dine on a British-themed menu. Dinner will be followed by a live viewing of the season finale (which airs Feb. 17 on PBS) in the mansion’s planetarium.
Dinner will be held at 7:15 p.m. with the show airing from 9 -10 p.m.
Black or white tie are encouraged.
Chef Marc Berarducci will prepare a menu that includes roasted butternut squash salads with warm cider vinaigrette, cottage pie, English roast and lemon curd tart. Cost is $75 per person including wine with dinner. RSVP deadline is Friday, Feb. 8.
RSVP to: Caleb Pifer 454-1813 x25 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Shirley MacLaine joined the show this season. The history, the fashions, the cars and the fans are incredible, and so is the award-winning writing.
I interviewed Mrs. Patmore — actress Lesley Nicol — by phone about a month ago for our January issue of Lake Erie LifeStyle – here’s the link to that interview.
