The April 20 event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with Springtime in Paris fashion show, featuring vintage clothing from Catherine’s Closet Vintage Boutique. Models will stroll leisurely through the restaurant, showing off women’s and men’s French fashions. Catherine’s Closet will also have a pop-up shop on site with hats, scarves and other items.
For just $15, fashion show guests will enjoy an appetizer-and-drink special that includes blue cheese mini soufflés made with duck confit, baby mizuna, poached pears, toasted pine nuts and a bing cherry sauce. The appetizer special comes with a choice of a French 75 Cocktail, Aperol Spritz or a glass of sparkling wine. (These cocktails will be available all night for $6).

Be sure to wear your best French attire. For men, think dapper shoes, cufflinks, suspenders, blazers, vests and hats. And for ladies, it’s scarves, hats, striped boat-neck shirts, pencil skirts and red lipstick. (Small dogs optional.) The best-dressed table will win a bottle of French wine. Tables must be entered in the show by 6:30. The winning table will be selected at 7:15 p.m.
The talented Shoji Ledward (guitar) and Duane Padilla (master violinist) will perform romantic, French jazz and cabaret music. For dinner, Chef Marco Elder is cooking up a classic French stew, Pot au Feu, with slow- braised oxtail, short rib and beef heart in a rich broth with carrots, parsnips and new potatoes ($24). Brasserie Du Vin’s regular dinner menu will also be available.
