Martinis on the Plaza Gala

The Martinez Chamber of Commerce presents Martinis on the Plaza Gala, celebrating the official birthplace of the martini and the rich history of bayside Martinez!

Martinez’ most acclaimed social event is held around the fountain at Ignacio Plaza, located at the steps of City Hall under twinkling white lights, with the gaiety of the post-Depression and World War II era. It is a remembrance of all that is good in America, a revitalization of swing dancing, the advent of the Rat Pack, and music that makes everyone want to dance. The event features fabulous food from regional restaurants and martinis, specialty libations, beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. Suggested attire is black tie optional, cocktail, or period appropriate.

The birth of the martini was the result of a miner who walked into a Martinez saloon and requested a bottle of champagne to celebrate his gold mining success. As the bar did not have champagne, the bartender offered him a “Martinez Special,” known today as the Martini.

Saturday, September 17, 6:30 -10pm, at Ignacio Plaza, 525 Henrietta St., Martinez. Tickets can befound here.  All guests must be 21 and over. For additional information, call (925) 228-2345.
