Crystal Palace and the Piano Luncheon


Phew! Another Food and Wine has successfully come to a close, you got a good night's sleep and it may seem a tad "tame" around town.

But not for long!

This Wednesday, June 20, 12:30 p.m at the Hotel Jerome, it's the Aspen Business Luncheon. Join Mead Metcalf, musician and legendary owner of the Crystal Palace Dinner Theater, for a live performance and an hour of original song.

Enjoy a buffet menu from the Jerome's new chef, Rob Zack, while you network, socialize and stay fully entertained.
