Jazz, Wine, & Dessert Night

Saturday evening, we invite you to register for a night of wine, dessert, and all that jazz! The evening begins at 7 p.m., when wine, desserts, and great conversation will ensue. Once the clock strikes 8, the immensely talented saxophonist, composer, producer, and vocalist Eric Darius will take the stage. After a day full of educational seminars and jotting notes, come sip a glass of vino and enjoy some jazz notes.

Petersen Automotive Museum

The conference wraps up around 1:30 p.m., but it doesn’t end there. Want to see Fred Astaire's 1923 Rolls-Royce? How about entering a private vault and seeing a 1952/1956 Chrysler Imperial Parade Phaeton used by Presidents Eisenhower and Nixon? Join us at the Petersen Automotive Museum and you’ll see both of these plus the Back to the Future Delorean, the Batmobile, the Furious 7 Charger, the Magnum PI Ferrari, and much more!


Thank you!
