Downtown, Where All the Givers and Shakers Go

Last Saturday afternoon, couples, friends, and coworkers, strolled downtown for “A Taste of Rye”, the annual event organized by Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s in support of My Sister’s Place, which for over 40 years has worked to end domestic violence.

Hundreds sipped and sampled the fare at a number of Purchase Street restaurants, as well as at Wine at Five, where Blue Tulip chocolates paired nicely with reds. And many lingered to enjoy one of the last summer Saturdays.

“This is a good, old-fashioned small-town event,” said Julia B. Fee manager Pati Holmes, “where people come to relax in our charming, restaurant-rich downtown. And My Sister’s Place is the well-deserved beneficiary of the generous and spirited ‘tasters’ in Rye.”
