Fall Harvest Progressive Dinner, Home Tour, and Wine Tasting in South Pasadena

From the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation:

Fall Harvest, Progressive Dinner, Home Tour, and Wine Tasting - Saturday Oct 10

The South Pasadena Preservation Foundation is offering this Fall’s popular home tour in two versions. On Saturday evening, October 10, ticket holders will be superbly wined and dined at each of five elegant homes in a well-manicured estate area of South Pasadena.

Featured properties will include architecturally significant homes representing a varied selection of historic styles: most notably, Craftsman and Period Revival. All homes on the tour are within easy walking distance of each other and ample street parking is available.

The $80 per person price includes home tours, with a separate dinner course at each location, but also provides the opportunity to sample a different premium wine with each course. All wines are selected from the increasingly popular Central California coast appellation of Paso Robles.

The Progressive Dinner Tour is limited to 60 diners in each of two tiers: the “Twilight Tour” will begin at 5:30 pm and the “Starlight Tour” will start at 7 pm. Each complete dinner tour should take approximately three and a half hours.

Tickets for the dinner tour are expected to go quickly. Paid reservations will be accepted in the order received, up to the maximum of 120. Then it will be “That’s all, folks!”

Sensational South Pas Estates Home Tour – Sunday, October 11

On the following day, Sunday, October 11, the homes will again be open for tour from 11 am to 3:30 pm (without the meal or wine), for $20 per person. Anyone ticketed for the Progressive Dinner is invited to come back on Sunday at no additional charge.

Tickets will be available by September 15, but reservations for the Saturday Progressive Dinner tours and the regular home tour on Sunday can be made immediately via www.sppreservation.org or by phone (626.799.9089).
