Champagne in the Shadows

UPDATE: I just got word that the Perrier Jouët event will be replaced by an upcoming Moët & Chandon Champagne dinner -- date and details for which will be announced very shortly. This is also exciting news and I will share the info ASAP. Wow -- what a prestigious Champagne house event coming to Poughkeepsie!

How fabulous! A romantic candlelight dinner featuring the famed French Champagne house Perrier Jouët at the elegant Shadows restaurant overlooking the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie. Seats for this event are VERY limited so if you are interested in going, I recommend you call Shadows on the Hudson at 845-486-9500 for reservations ASAP.
