Pre-Craftsman Weekend: Dinner at The Raymond

Nov 2, 2015

The-Raymond-REstaurantCraftsman Weekend 2015 opens on Thursday, November 13, with cocktails, a presentation, and dinner at the richly historical, intimate, upscale, and beautiful Raymond Restaurant.

Reservations for this event must be provided by Thursday, November 5, and the restaurant has limited seating, so click here to reserve a seat at the table. Or if a drink and a chat are more to your taste, come only for cocktail hour, hors d’oeuvres, and the presentation.

Author Rick Thomas leads the presentation, documenting the history of the Raymond, “a place for particular people; Walter Raymond, proprietor.”
