Experience Time Travel at the Groveland Hotel's Vintage Day

Monday, February 11, 2013

Celebrate those “thrilling days of yesteryear” where flappers and gangsters danced the night away at their favorite speakeasy at The Groveland Hotel’s “Vintage Day” festivities on Saturday, June 1 2013. The culture of the 1920's-40's comes to life as guests experience the music, dance and food of the Art Deco era.

The festivities begin on Saturday with an old-fashioned ice cream social at noon, where you can have fun mixing and matching flavors and toppings. At 2:00 PM, take part in free dance lessons where you’ll learn to cut a rug in style. This is the perfect opportunity to experience couples and group dances like the foxtrot and Charleston at no cost.

Throughout the day, more opportunities for fun experiences will be available, including a self-guided walk of Groveland’s historic buildings, many of which were built in the 1920s. The Art Deco Society of California will also be in attendance with information on this fascinating and artistic era. Be sure to dress up in style to participate in the costume contest, with prizes for Most Authentic Attire, Most Entertaining Costume, and Best Couple. Vintage Day is also held in conjunction with the popular annual “Where the Hell is Groveland Car Show” on Sunday, June 2 in Mary Laveroni Park.

Celebrate an era when everything was larger than life at the:

The hotel’s saloon with its Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence wine list will serve as your “speakeasy” where you could save a little on your martini, Manhattan, or other popular cocktails of the 1930's - if you know the password. Dinner service begins at 5:30pm with an authentic 1930's menu, featuring popular dishes served at the finest hotels and clubs of the era, like Filet Mignon with Browned Butter.
