SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Springs History Museum is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Canfield Casino with a special event on Saturday, Dec. 5.
The Museum has adapted its annual Holiday Gala fundraiser into a Date Night at Home.
The event, presented by Prestwick Chase at Saratoga, features a special dinner prepared by Prestwick Chase executive chefs and delivered to you at your home.
The chefs will prepare two-pound lobster dinners, fresh from Gloucester, MA, complete with one bottle of Domaine Chandon Brut with two dinners, or a split with one, and delivered within Saratoga Springs city limits.
A primavera dinner is available as a vegetarian option and dinners can also be picked up at the Canfield Casino. While dining, musician Thom Powers will perform 6-8 p.m. via live stream from the High Stakes Room of the Casino, and during breaks historians will speak about the 150th anniversary of the Casino and its’ importance to the city of Saratoga Springs.
The Museum also opened an online silent auction this week. The auction will end after dinner. Unique items include: framed remnants of the original 1870 Canfield Casino carpet, original casino chips from the Arrowhead and Riley’s Lake House, Spit and Spat Bookends, and more.
Tickets for the Date Night Gala are $75 and can be purchased via the Saratoga Springs History Museum website at: www.saratogahistory.org. Must be 21 or older to purchase a meal. Ticket sales close Nov. 27.
