LACS ET DES BOIS – A Starlight Soirée

October 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm CDT


Our evening will start outside on a private patio sipping on Cava and enjoying passed appetizers while you reconnect with Chaîne friends, or meet some new ones, and enjoy the view of Lake Woodlands as the sun is starting to set. The backdrop and lighting sets the stage as we begin our evening soirée. We will then move into our private dining room to our tables decorated in hues of black and silver and the soft glitter of candles will provide the ambience for us to enjoy a delectable meal custom designed for us by Truluck’s. As the evening concludes, we can enjoy the starlight and the making of fond memories over food and wine. Please join us in our Starlight Soirée and in creating this memory.
