Food and Drink

Visit tasting stations from a variety of local restaurants offering both savory bites and sweet treats. Enjoy our signature cocktail, wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverage options.


Groove along with Rhode Island cover band Serendipity, whose guitarist is EG News’s very own advertising sales manager, Andrew Disa. Experience East Greenwich history with a brief tour of the Varnum House Museum.


Raise your hand to bid on one of these unique experiences:

    • Extra! Extra!: EG-based Verdi Productions is filming a movie in Rhode Island this fall, and you and a guest can join the production for a day. Meet the cast and crew, enjoy a tour of the set, and appear as an extra in the film.
    • Sliding Capos Show: The Sliding Capos regularly pack the house at the Updike Room in the Greenwich Hotel. Now they’re coming to your house! Be the winning bidder, and a trimmed-down, intimate version of the band will play at your private event.
    • The Odeum, All to Yourself: The Greenwich Odeum hosts hundreds of guests for concerts and comedy, but you can enjoy the historic theater without the crowd. Your winning bid gets you and nine guests a behind-the-scenes tour, a private movie screening (complete with drinks and snacks), and your message on the marquee.
    • More items to be announced soon!
