Cocktails & Conversation XXII @ The Pinner House ~ Christmas Edition

Register HERE

There's no better way to celebrate the Christmas season than to celebrate it with all of your favorite friends and colleagues at The Pinner House in Downtown Suffolk.

As a bonus, Downtown Suffolk's favorite Santa, Santa Kenny of East Coast Santa, will be there... literally with bells on. And, you should see his authentic North Pole sleigh he'll arrive in.

We invite you to experience the elegance and warmth of The Pinner House in Downtown Suffolk. Built in the 1890s by John B. Pinner, one of Suffolk’s most prominent families. The Pinner House is the perfect backdrop to share with your friends and colleagues.

Our Christmas Cocktails & Conversation means that the The Pinner House and the grounds are available exclusively to us. There are several areas throughout the property both indoor and outdoors that are the perfect setting for good conversation and festive charge.

Experience the grandeur of the Italian style fountain as we hang out and chat al fresco under the twinkle lights. Our gathering under the expansive grape arbor with cozy fireplace will warm our celebration on this crisp evening. It'll be the perfect garden party in the sunroom that boasts 8 sets of french doors overlooking the formal gardens.

Networking at The Pinner House is a one of a kind experience.

Owners of O’Neal’s Studio of Photography for the past 25 years, Allyn and Kris Brown are experts at helping set the stage for our special event. They are excited to be inviting us to become a part of the legacy of The Pinner House.

You can follow The Pinner House on their website, on Facebook or on Instagram.

Finger foods along with beer and wine will be served among several other surprises.

The event is FREE, but you MUST resgister. Registration for this Christmas Edition of Cocktails & Conversation will go quickly. Don't delay. Attendees MUST also bring their tickets (printed or digital) for entrance into the event.

Harvest Dinner with Chef Harper Bradshaw

As sunsets lower earlier in the evening, and the warm shades of autumn bring the smell of crisp leaves, the fall harvest prepares us for months dining together- with friends and family.

Join The Pinner House for an autumn Harvest Dinner under the stars! Chef Harper Bradshaw will be preparing a sumptuous multi-course meal with perfectly paired wines. As live music lulls you into the season, enjoy cigars by the fire with Bond’s Cigar’s, or a Virginia whiskey tasting under the grape arbor.


“At no other time than autumn does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honey-sweet where you feel it touching the first sounds.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke
