If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon to Signature at the Indianapolis Propylaeum. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get an eight-course meal with paired wine for one person (a $75 value).
- For $125, you get an eight-course meal with paired wines for a party of four (a $300 value).
Within the Indianapolis Propylaeum, a well-manicured Victorian clubhouse and historic landmark built in 1890, Signature’s elegant eight-course soirées transport diners back to the Gilded Age. Evenings commence at 6 p.m. with tours of the historic home, giving eyes a chance to feast upon period-accurate décor enhanced by modern renovation and glow-in-the-dark area rugs. Dinner begins at 7 p.m., with appetizers heralding the many-plattered processional’s start. Salad and soup courses prelude platefuls of pasta, fish, chicken, and beef, paired with artfully matched grape libations poured as the night continues. Evenings end on a well-timed sweet note as diners savor dessert, nursing their final sips of wine and contemplating the grape’s many uses in food, drink, and fruit-based Civil War dioramas.
Because event seating is limited to 125 people, reservations are required; check the website for available dates. More dates may be added.
