Join us for a wonderous evening amid beautiful apple blossoms celebrating springtime and O’Neal friendships. Stroll through the orchard during the cocktail hour sipping on Stargazer Ciders, contemporary Southern craft hard ciders from James Creek Ciderhouse in Cameron, NC owned by cidermakers and former O’Neal parents David and Ann Marie Thornton. Enjoy appetizers from Chef Mark Elliott of Elliotts on Linden as you explore the orchard. Then sit amid the blossoms for a fabulous dinner of smoked meats and springtime fare from Chef Elliott with your choice of cider, wine or beer. After dinner, as the sun sets behind the towering pines, rock the night away with tunes from the Granny Smiths, featuring
O’Neal parents Mark Epstein and David Furie.
