Martinis on the Plaza Gala

 

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

 

One of the most acclaimed social events in the Bay Area, and certainly well-known and respected in Martinez, Martinis on the Plaza is back this fall.  Hosted around the fountain at Ignacio Plaza under sparkling lights, guests find themselves in an atmosphere reminiscent of post-Depression and World War II era. Bringing back swing dancing, the Rat Pack, and foot-tapping music no one can ignore, this event reminds attendees of what good came out of America in years past. This event showcases excellent food from local restaurants, much-expected 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 23, 6:30 -10pm, at Ignacio Plaza, 525 Henrietta St., Martinez. Tickets can be found at eventbrite.com by searching Martinis on the Plaza. All guests must be 21 and over. For additional information, call (925) 228-2345.
