On Friday, May 18th, Chef’s Expressions hosted our first Secret Supper Society event! It wasn’t easy to keep the location and menu a secret, we were so excited in the office. Even our band and fire dancers (yes, there were fire dancers) didn’t know the location until we told our guests the day before.
We were familiar with the location, as we host many amazing weddings and events at the 1840’s – on all four levels! For our ‘Up in Smoke’ Secret Supper, we decided to keep it on the first two floors – 1840’s Caberet & 1840’s City Lites.
