Join Bob and Gretchen Gardner at their stunning Lovell Valley house where they will prepare a feast of wild duck with all the trimmings. Bob will regale you all with how he “obtained” these ducks in the wild. There will be an abundance of cocktails and wine throughout. After dinner there will be a 50's and 60's rock 'n roll sing-a-long around the piano. If you've forgotten the lyrics, we've found that tequila shots will spark your memory. Since wild duck cannot be bought in any market (the duck you're used to is Long Island tame duck), this is a real taste treat and an evening you'll remember!
