Vet Set

| March 14, 2013 | Parties

America—it’s the home of the brave, and the most heroic among us were honored during Veterans First’s food and wine fest at Fletcher Jones Motorcars in Newport. Dubbed Patriot’s Promise, the first annual affair drew in culinarians and oenophiles like Jaclyn and Joel Perham, Georgina and Ron Troxell, and Glenn Verdult, and palatable indulgences awaited around every turn. Case in point: Restos such as Wild Strawberry CafĂ© and Nieuport 17 brought the eats, while Tatratea and Landy Family Vineyards poured glass after glass of cocktails and vino. And have no fear: Auto aficionados had some fun, too. They browsed the brand’s models and listened to the newest in car audio systems from Bang & Olufsen. Further satisfaction for all attendees came from the groovy jazz entertainment, a live auction and the more than $17,000 raised for O.C.’s underserved veterans. Photography by Reza Allah-Bakhshi
