First Friday! French Cabaret

Escape to Paris at a cabaret-inspired fête––a sensual feast for your eyes and ears! Dive into the Parisian and Golden Age listening to sounds of the Avalon Jazz Band featuring dances that harken back to jazz halls, flappers, and dandies dancing in a whirlwind to soulful rhymes and rhythms. Activities include a short talk on the exhibition The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne.

No Paris trip is complete without the French bistro experience. Sip apéritifs, and savor mini baguette sandwiches, pommes frites, and macarons available for purchase at the Annenberg Court. Or make an evening of it with an intimate dinner at our Garden Café.
