HARTFORD - It’s back! The third annual Connecticut Game Dinner & Pairings Night in the Chopin Ballroom at the Polish National Home will take place Friday, Nov. 10, from 7 to 10:30 p.m.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Come early and enjoy the social hour featuring appetizers and paired cocktail, wine or beer while listening to jazz performed by the Randy Kemp Trio.

The ballroom bar will be open for guests who would like a favorite cocktail in addition to, or instead of, what will be served with each course.

Around 7 p.m. the first course will be announced and served along with the paired beer, wine or liquor. There will be ample time in between courses to socialize or dance to the live music.

“The reason why we sell out is because this ‘game dinner’ is modeled after traditional meals of eastern European nobility after a hunt. It is an upscale, elegant evening out, perfect for a couple or group of friends looking for something truly unique to do in Hartford,” according to the advance publicity for the event. “‘Chef Jeff’ is bringing out his magic chef-wand to create a memorable multi-course dining experience inspired by foods enjoyed by medieval Polish nobility.”

Tickets are $75 per person for PNH members, $80 for non-members. A limited number of tickets are available for special early bird purchase. VIP pricing is available for full-table ticket purchases (eight to 10 seats).
