JAG’s Juke Joint Combines Virtual Performance With Real Dinner
A virtual cabaret with a real-life culinary twist . . . This year’s annual fundraiser for JAG Productions (Juke Joint) will, like most events of this kind, take place online. But as in past years, the home-cooked feast remains, and it’s far from virtual. You can order and pick up your dinner to go, and the menu (see below, and take pleasure just in the reading) is tantalizing, including six (!) cheese macaroni and a specialty cocktail from Wolf Tree crafted just for JAG. Below is part of JAG’s press release. For further info about JAG Productions, including a list of performers in the upcoming cabaret, check out JAG’s website.
