Savor the Avenue honors Historical Society

Last chance for Delray romance!

Monday night is the eighth Savor The Avenue—a five-block long dining table (with over-the-top table décor) down the center of Atlantic Avenue featuring a four-course dinner served by Delray’s finest restaurants—hosted by Delray and Boca magazines and the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority.

We’ve told you how magical its is, and 1,100 people will experience it this year. DDA head Laura Simon says there are a few seats left, and now is your last chance to snag one of them.

Plus, this year the event will benefit the Delray Beach Historical Society, an organization that is committed to preserving the city’s past through innovative events and exhibits all year long. The Delray Beach Historical Society, under the direction of powerhouse Winnie Diggans Edwards, is at the corner of N.E. First St. and N. Swinton Ave. and consists of three restored houses. Cason Cottage Museum is a house museum reflecting South Florida family lifestyle of the period 1915-1935. The 1926 Florida Bungalow houses administrative offices, exhibit space and the Porch Gift Shop. The 1908 Hunt House (ESW History Learning Center & Archives) houses exhibit space, curator’s office, conference room and portable classroom space. An archives storage building is attached.

The group is always finding new ways to celebrate Delray’s unique heritage, from a farming exhibit and harvest dinner to a surfing exhibit (above) and holiday events—it’s a worthy recipient as this year’s Savor the Avenue proceeds, and we’re proud to honor its work.

The eighth Annual Savor the Avenue is Monday, March 21 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will feature 18 of Delray’s best restaurants at a table that is 1,300 feet long, stretching from Swinton Avenue to U.S. 1.
