Boca Bacchanal Kicks Off With Launch Party, Caffe Martier Opening in Stuart


On Feb. 12, join the Boca Bacchanal chairwomen, Heather Shaw and Samantha Vassallo, at Saks Fifth Avenue Boca Raton for a kick-off event that includes wine and bites, of course. From 6 to 8 p.m., for $50 per person, you’ll be introduced to the hosts of the Vintner Dinners and will have first choice to sign up for fave locations. The dinners always sell out, so this is a good opportunity to get in on the action. Find kick-off info and tickets here.

The Bacchanal benefits the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum, and will take place April 5 to 6.

The popular Caffe Martier of Delray Beach’s Atlantic Avenue closed in early 2018. But it’s not entirely gone, just moved north a bit.
