Join us in the Grand Ballroom Gallery for Lightner After Hours on the last Thursday of the month from 5:30pm-7:30pm. This month’s theme is Jazz, Wine, & Tapas. Performing will be Blue Muse, an enigma that is true to their name. Formed in 2013, the members are as eclectic as their music; a former computer consultant recruiting her professor, fellow Jacksonville University students, and adjuncts as well as a baker’s apprentice. It is this sense of mystery and thoughtful collaboration that attributes to the diversified sound their fans love.
Michael’s Tasting Room will be providing delectable cuisine. Featured on the Food Network with Chef Emeril Lagasse during Florida’s 500th anniversary, Michael’s wine list was recently awarded the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for the ninth year in a row.
The event will also include a special recognition of sponsors of the museum’s upcoming exhibition, Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times coming this fall.
During this monthly event, locals and tourists alike are welcome to enjoy the atmosphere of the Lightner Museum after hours while relaxing with refreshments before visiting some of the many wonderful local restaurants including Cafe Alcazar. From 6:00pm-8:00pm, dinner can be purchased there from a specialty menu that will be offered.
Lightner After Hours is free and open to the public. Beverages are available for a donation. Professional attire is encouraged.
Free parking is available after 5:00pm.
