Event Details

Have you missed Jacksonville Magazine's Secret Supper Clubs? Well, we've missed hosting them. With a little work here and a lot of brainstorming there we have a new concept for our guests to enjoy local favorites while remaining safe in their own homes.

To-Go and A Show!

We partner with local restaurants to bring you a delicious meal (yes, you guessed it, it's a secret!) that you can enjoy in your own home. The twist? It's themed to a popular film! It's simple. Simply order your meal (buy a ticket above), pick up the mystery dinner on the designated date and time frame and head home and watch your film.

Our next stop in the series is with Cummer Cafe who has themed their dinner around their virtual exhibit Cross Pollination: Heade, Cole, Church and our Contemporary Moment. Guests can expect four courses featuring tasty bites of ricotta, kale, chicken... but we can't give too much away! Pick up is Friday, November 13, between 5-6:30 PM.

Cross Pollination takes flight from the influential series of paintings, The Gems of Brazil (1863-64) by Martin Johnson Heade, but expands outward to explore polination in nature and ecology, cultural and artistic influence and exchange, and the interconnection between art and science, extending from the 19th century to now. Paintings, sketches, and natural history specimens from the collections of Crystal Bridges, Thomas Cole National Historical Site, and the Olana Partnership for the core of the checklist. This exhibition is a collaboration between Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Thomas Cole National Historical Site, and the Olana Partnership at Olana State Historic Site. The exhibition is organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and supported in part by Art Bridges Foundation. Support for this exhibition and its national tour is provided by Art Bridges. Additional major support has been provided by the Henry Luce Foundation.

But it doesn't stop there. Make sure to post a photo of your to-go and a show set up on social media. Share your fun night in using the #ToGoandAShowJax on Facebook or Instagram and one lucky winner will receive a prize.
