‘Pride & Prosecco’ means bubbles join books for fun

There’s not a lot of evidence that Jane Austen ever tried prosecco, but if she had, she would have loved it. As the Delray Beach Public Library puts it, combining food, fun and literary fervor will make you “completely and perfectly, wonderfully and incandescently happy,” (a nod to Jane) while supporting the library at this event on Nov. 1 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Restaurants on hand include Anthony’s Pizza, Rocco’s Tacos, Wine Wave, Buddha Sky Bar and more. Plus retail vendors for some retail therapy. Cost is $65 per person, or if you BOGO, it’s $100 for two besties.

Jane would have approved.

Delray Beach Public Library, 100 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach; 561/266-0798.
