On Saturday night, May 7, the bon vivants of Boca Raton and beyond flocked to The Boca Raton to indulge in everything the Boca Bacchanal Grand Tasting had to offer. This event, benefitting the Boca Raton Historical Society and The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum, offered food and wine, as well as a silent auction. Forty-two prized vintners and wineries with wines from all over the world were ready to pour. People could strike a pose to remember the moment at the Alina Residences’ “photo booth.”
