The Pink Pigeon Original Spirited Creole Picnic

An unforgettable Creole inspired picnic in the lush Courtyard of the Degas House is hosted by Pink Pigeon Rum and Anchor Distilling Co. Feast on award-winning classic Creole favorites from New Orleans-based rising star Chef Scot Craig. Bountiful food stations and picnic tables will replace traditional sit-down formalities and guests will feast on a late summer menagerie of Creole favorites and more paired with rum cocktails made by Kate Grutman and Lynette Marrero. This refreshingly low-key spirited dinner will echo the casual and high-spirited backyard gatherings of New Orleans’ by gone era, with a focus on fun, food and drink. Ticket price includes dinner, cocktails, live music, entertainment and the exclusive opportunity to explore the grounds of the Degas House. This dinner promises to be the most vibrant, colorful and memorable of the bunch!
