Experience this Rat Pack-themed moveable feast right inside the largest hotel in Delaware. You will be welcomed in the lobby with a glass of bubbly, then be whisked upstairs to one of Dover Downs' most luxurious suites overlooking the racetrack for appetizers and wine, while talking one-on-one with the winemaker while hearing real-life gangster stories from the one and only Jack Falcone. Then you'll be transported to the Balinese-themed Topper’s Spa for your next course. The final stop is the elegant Michele’s Restaurant for dinner and dessert paired with amazing wines and a couple of surprises. This event is sure to please all the senses!
