What a month, so little time but so much to say! The Peralynna Inn partnered up with the Howard County Bloggers for the St. Patrick’s Peralynna Party! I love partnerships like this one, because it allows me to discover a new place in my own hometown.
I have lived in Columbia for 25 years now and I am a little embarrassed to tell you how often I get lost driving around. Anyway, I have driven past The Peralynna Inn many, many times. I always thought it was a beautiful home that someone lived in. Little did I know that was an absolutely charming inn.
I have never been to a dinner and dance event so I had no idea what to except. If anything, it was a nice excuse to get dressed up on a Friday evening. Most of my Friday nights involve a combination of work + homework.
I did not get a chance to grab a picture of all the attendees of the event, but it was a packed house!
As much as I love to eat, I could not keep up with the pace of the food. We started off with some appetizers, fruit, cheese, crackers and some delicious spinach and artichoke dip. I obviously went back for some more cheese.
The absolute best part of the event was the fantastic atmosphere and that was largely in part due to the band, Love Story. They were able to keep the party and dance floor going with their beautiful vocals.
Since the event was not held in a formal dining area, it was easy to walk in, not knowing anyone there, and become comfortable very quickly. Luckily, I knew some friends that were also attending the event so we were able to eat and dance the night away.
Between, the appetizers, the salad spread and bread I was stuffed before dinner even rolled around. In the midst of all the food, people were getting up to dance whenever the mood struck them. It was so lovely to see other people having a lovely evening eating and dancing the night away.
I personally am not a huge fan of Irish food, but I was definitely able to find something to eat that I enjoyed.
I was having too good of a time that I completely missed out on the dessert portion of the evening. But I did spy a chocolate fountain!
Next time I will have to pace myself a little better so that I can partake in my favorite part of any meal, which is dessert.
I don’t think my words and pictures due justice to how much fun I had at the party. If you are looking for a fun, local and affordable night out I highly recommend the The Peralynna Inn. At the end of the party, I was able to spend some time chatting with the owners and you can really see how much they love the Peralynna Inn.
I am so glad I was able to attend and hopefully I can attend another party in the future!
Have you ever attended a dinner/dance party?
