Food will come straight from the Good Oak kitchen with a menu created by Executive Chef Nico Rodriguez as Tim Walsh, Loveblock’s Beverage Director, holds down the bar fort, concocting specialty cocktails shaken and stirred with Del Bac’s craft whiskey alongside regional wine pours paired perfectly for each dish.

Dinner will start at 7 p.m. Don’t be late!
