Last Saturday, Jerry Frungillo led a group of his friends on a unique St. Patrick's Day Crawl through two of our very special venues. They started with dinner and drinks at our historic B&B, The Inn at Millrace Pond (Hope, NJ), which was hopping with guests celebrating the Irish holiday. We were very proud to set a new record that evening for the highest number of dinner guests at The Inn since purchasing the establishment in September of 2010 ~ Erin Go Bragh!
"Miss McCutie" was one of our most festive guests...how adorable is she? Jerry himself went full-on Irish ordering the delicious homemade corn beef and cabbage special-of-the-day paired with a chocolate stout. The guests at his table made selections from both the holiday and house dinner menus. As always, the Grilled Atlantic Salmon towering over steamed spinach and hand-mashed potatoes in buerre blanc sauce received many raved reviews...it is sooo delectable....
Meanwhile, the Inn's cellar-level Fireside Tavern was hopping with friends and families giving cheers with green beers as live performances by The Skinny Singers featuring Brian St. John provided the crowd with incredible sets of classic rock and folk music.
After dinner, Jerry gathered up his group of friends from the crowd to go snatch up some of John "The Baker" Williams' signature red velvet cupcakes back at The Villa at Mountain Lakes where two weddings were in full swing ~ Congratulations to both Katie & Ron and Yesi & JC! Immediately upon arrival, both adults and kids alike raced through The Villa's rear staff entrance and headed straight to the catering kitchen to devour their special batch of cupcakes. Matt Frungillo (Jerry's youngest nephew) was already waiting for them in his St. Paddy's Day getup and the night ended with the kids jamming behind-the-scenes to dance songs being spun in the two ballrooms by Mix Master DJs and Diamond Productions .
Only 361 more days until St. Patrick's Day 2013...start the countdown!
