EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (November 22, 2022) — An evening of fine food, beer sampling, live music, and more is coming to the EAA Aviation Museum on Saturday evening, March 11, with the inaugural “Flight at the Museum” fundraiser. The reception, multi-course dinner and entertainment will run from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m., with proceeds benefiting EAA’s museum youth education programs.
Designed as an upscale food and drink experience, Flight at the Museum will pair fine cuisine from TJ’s Highland Steakhouse of Oshkosh with a variety of beverages from Stone Arch Brewery of Appleton. During the pre-dinner reception, premium beers from 20 breweries will be available for sampling alongside a variety of hors d’oeuvres.
“A variety of evolving factors led us to create this unique event, which provides an experience and atmosphere unlike anything else in the region,” said Chris Farrell, Director of Events at EAA. “The quality of food, drink, and entertainment will be outstanding for a memorable evening in support of our youth education activities.”
Award-winning and internationally known vocalist Janet Planet and her combo will provide entertainment during the dinner, with The JazzMen playing during the pre-dinner reception. Stone Arch Brewery will also have samples of various beer contending to be the brew that will honor EAA’s 70th anniversary in 2023, with attendees voting for the two finalists to be considered.
