Take a step back in time and relive those Saturdays from your childhood when it was a big deal to go downtown for a day of shopping and dining. Join us for a downtown Summer Supper at the former JC Penney building located at 416 S. Gay Street. This building, built in 1898 after a fire the previous year had destroyed the entire block, has been lovingly restored by Hatcher-Hill & Associates, GP. The evening will take place in several different units in the building. Cocktails and appetizers will be served at the Jewelry Counter located on the 2nd floor. The dinner will then be served in the Dining Salon, followed by dessert in the Lounge.
