Last year, The Alfond Inn launched Get Your Jazz On, a series of food, wine and jazz events designed to give Orlando locals the chance to toast our fine weather and celebrate under the stars. These fêtes were such a success that a spring series has just been announced.
Kicking off on Friday, March 13, this trio of outdoor parties will feature live music, wine tastings and a smoked pig feast (served buffet style) with delicious accompaniments. The $30 ticket also includes free valet parking and access to extended happy hour specials throughout the event.
We attended the inaugural event and were delighted by the fabulous food and the lovely setting on The Alfond Inn's courtyard lawn. The fire pits were all lit and couples lingered for hours enjoying the perfect evening temperatures while sipping wine and listening to music.
Get Your Jazz On events run from 6pm – 9pm on the following dates:
- March 13
- April 17
- May 29
Tickets are purchased onsite during the event and there is always enough food and wine for everyone, regardless of crowd size. Guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs.
NOTE: Those interested in continuing the fun at Hamilton's Kitchen should consider making an advanced reservation by calling 407-998-8090.
