An Evening in Tuscany

Benvenuto (“Welcome”) Spend an evening in the traditions of the Old World… Dine at elegantly set tables set amid a sea of glimmering candles and twinkling lights, or at cafe tables under the stars on Graylyn's Rear Terrace. Strolling opera singers serenade you while you enjoy the cuisine of Tuscany, a region known for its impeccable taste. Wandering gypsies offer to tell your fortune while you sip the finest vintages of hearty and robust wine. Discover the beauty and mystery that is Tuscany. This elegant Italian theme can be incorporated into a wine tasting with light hors d' oeuvres, a cocktail reception, or a full dinner. Specially selected wines will be offered, along with informative and interesting descriptions of each one. The experience will give guests a new appreciation for the quality of the wines and cuisine of Tuscany.

Carolina Pig Pickin'

Imagine the aroma of smoked barbecue, the lively sound of bluegrass music, and dining underneath a Carolina Blue sky… Come on down for an old fashioned toe tappin' Carolina Pig Pickin', with a traditional Carolina barbecue buffet, great entertainment and that down-home Southern hospitality. We can even teach y'all how to clog! Our prop package includes an assortment of barnyard collectibles such as an authentic water trough for beverages, aged fencing for area and stage effect, an antique horse-drawn wagon, and bales of hay. Complete the scene with a bluegrass band and get ready for a relaxing evening of Southern fun!
