Dining News
Did you know… It can be said that the Swing Era began when Louis Armstrong joined Fletcher Henderson’s band in 1924. But what is today considered the official launch of the Swing Era was when Benny Goodman performed at the Palomar Ballroom on August 21st, 1935. We are bringing back the swing with Dinner & Dancing in the Main Dining Room tonight! The Hallmark Swing Quartet will be here to entertain and provide the music for you to show off your moves! Don’t miss out, make your reservation with the Concierge.
