Annual Holiday Bash at the Biltmore

Let’s meet for no-host cocktails in the gorgeous Rendezvous Court or take an escorted tour of this historic hotel (optional), including the elegant ballrooms and indoor pool.

Then in Smeraldi’s Restaurant, we’ll have dinner with all the trimmings – soup or salad, entrée and sides, dessert selection, and beverages (non-alcoholic included with dinner; no-host bar available).
Awards and drawings follow, and we’ll have some nice surprises for you!
