We can’t wait for the evening of Tuesday, June 14, to break out our dancing shoes for an evening of “Swing & Sweets,” a perfect blend of desserts and dancing to the sound of Swing North Big Band. We invite you to join us at the lovely Sugar Hill Meeting House from 7:30- 9 p.m. for a delightful evening of dancing and sweet confections.
The great music, dance and delicious desserts represent another aspect of our fabulous Fields of Lupine Festival that takes place all around the Franconia Notch region, with dozens of different events in Lincoln, Sugar Hill, Franconia, Easton, and Bethlehem. The Adair Country Inn & Restaurant is among the restaurants and inns that will present a selection of fine desserts during the evening to enhance your enjoyment of the wonderful music that the popular Swing North Big Band is providing during this “Open Rehearsal” concert.
Adair’s Chef Orlo will prepare a gorgeous Lemon Angel Food Chiffon Cake, topped with berries and homemade oreos. This light and airy dessert is one of our favorites and we can’t wait for you to try it, too!
Other desserts on the menu include a Vanilla Sponge Cake with lemon cream and chocolate mousse filling, Chocolate Ganache Cake, Chocolate Eclairs, and a Graham Cracker-Crusted Cheese Cake with fresh strawberries and cream, all compliments of the Café Lafayette Dinner Train; Strawberry Vacherin and Cocoa Nib Sliders provided by the Mountain Club on Loon; and an old favorite, Aunt Anne’s Blueberry Cake from the Franconia Heritage Museum.
Harman’s Cheese & Country Store will offer assorted cheese and crackers, as a delicious side note to all the sweets. Polly’s Pancake Parlor, Sunset Hill House, and Indian Head Resort are also contributing goodies for the evening. We won’t reveal what their chefs are concocting, but we promise it’ll be worth coming out for.
So, dust off your dancing shoes, grab your partner and join us for a wonderful evening of Swing-era music. Don’t care to dance? Come and listen and enjoy dessert while the 18-piece “Basie-style” band belts out some tunes. Their arrangements include everything from Count Basie and Glen Miller to Maynard Ferguson and Sammy Nestico.
Admission to “Swing & Sweets” is $10 per person or $18 per couple, paid at the door. Call us at Adair at (603) 444-2600 if you have any questions, or learn more about Festival events at www.franconianotch.org/special-events/.
