Are you looking for something different to do for your next night out? Perhaps to view modern art while eating waffle sandwiches at the Gap, or fried eggplant and live music alongside iPads at the Apple store? That would be different all right! And it’s possibly what you will be doing if you join Deer Park Town Center’s new underground “Sub-Rosa” dining club and attend their first top secret event on Friday, June 22, a 8 p.m. I can’t say for sure where on Deer Park’s premises this provocative dining event will take place because they’re calling it a delicious secret and a confidential culinary adventure.

Tickets are currently on sale for this veiled event, but the location and other details remain under wraps. All ticketholders will be sent an e-mail 24 hours prior to the event with clues for how to find the location (somewhere within Deer Park Town Center, but not at a restaurant or a location that has anything to do with food). Once they arrive, guests will enjoy dinner, wine, entertainment and culture.
Sub-Rosa is a term that originated in Ancient Greece and means “Under the Rose.” It was understood that, when a rose was hung over the table during a closed-door meeting, whatever was discussed did not leave that room. Today, Sub-Rosa implies anything done in secret. This type of dining event has become popular in New York and London, and thanks to our versatile Deer Park Town Center, now it’s an option in the Barrington area.
Marketing Director at Deer Park Town Center, Regina Verdico, decided to plan a Sub-Rosa event in our town after attending one herself. “The entire evening was such an adventure. From finding the exact location of the event to the surprise element of the food being served, it was an experience that I will remember forever.”
Part of the fun comes from speculating what people will be eating off of and next to at this fun and funky event. I also am curious as to what they will eat, as the Sub-Rosa environment is one in which chefs are typically given free reign to showcase their styles and provide eclectic fare within their specialties.…
