Imagine being immersed in the music of the late 50s and 60s all over again, when The Kingston Trio happened onto San Francisco’s North Beach scene to electrify the country with their rich traditional folk music sound. Some 58 years after “Tom Dooley” rose up the music charts, the Trio is still going strong. And now, they’re bringing their harmonies to the intimate Painted Table Event Center stage for a special concert, one night only, in a benefit concert for the Central Valley Honor Flight. On Thursday, March 2nd, at 6:30 pm, take a trip back down memory lane with the Kingston Trio AND enjoy a sumptuous prix fixe dinner curated by the award-winning Painted Table chefs. Get your tickets for A Night Of Celebration, presented by The Painted Table Event Center and Team Neville Concerts now, before they sell out.

You’ll be treated to live music from today’s Kingston Trio members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton, and Don Marovich, who have direct links to the original group’s members. You’ll be treated to a menu that features your choice of entrée: delectable lemon caper chicken, braised pot roast, or Cauliflower steak, and you’ll be helping the Central Valley’s Honor Flight lift off the ground for their next trips.

Since 2013, The Central Valley Honor Flight has brought some 1,500 U.S. war veterans to visit their memorial in Washington, D.C. They are flown by charter aircraft and provided with lodging, meals, and transportation, with all expenses covered. The trip for each veteran costs $1,500, and the Central Valley Honor Flight is currently working towards funding upcoming trips. Your attendance at this special Night of Celebration will bring them closer to their goals.

Come out on Thursday, March 2nd, and reminisce to the sounds of the 57-year strong Kingston Trio while enjoying a delectable Painted Table dinner, all while supporting our local veterans with honor flights to Washington, DC. Reserve your tickets today to attend this phenomenal evening at the Painted Table Event Center, conveniently located at 5080 North Blackstone Ave., in Fresno.

    Get a head start on your plans for tying the knot in 2022 with The Painted Table’s Top Wedding Trends! Take our top ten list of unique ideas and put a custom spin on them to transform your wedding day into a one-of-a-kind reflection of your personalities that tell your own love story.

    1. Boho Chic Styling

    Your non-conformist wedding or elopement takes on a bohemian, hippy vibe. Intertwine the look of natural fibers, light clothing, and macramé with fresh or dried wildflowers, candles, and soft scents. Arrive to your wedding in a vintage bug or woody. Our staff creates the tablescape that takes a nod to your favorite boho décor.

    2. Charcuterie Cones

    This new food trend serves up the pretty and the practicality. Charcuterie cones are just what they sound like—Delicious finger food appetizers are delicately displayed in individual cones. Instead of guests diving into a board of hors devourers en-mass, they each hold their own, beautifully arranged portable serving, including gorgeous edible flowers and herbs. We’ll create a tapestry of flavor and color combinations to delight the eye and the palate.

    3. Grazing Tables (always a favorite)

    Invite your guests to pick up their favorite foods at their leisure! This giant charcuterie board welcomes snackers that love grabbing a variety of different morsels without going overboard. For your wedding reception, cocktail hour, or wedding rehearsal noshes, pick a theme and let us run with the ball: a pizza dream spread featuring all types of toppings upon pizza slices, a boho spread perched atop wooden serving trays decorated with sprigs of dried flowers, or your selection of delicacies from around the world. Even consider a dessert table with pretty, little bite-sized sweets for all to sample. The choice is yours.

    4. Wood-Fired Pizza

    A gourmet treat! Feature pizzas hand-tossed and homemade, in your favorite varieties, for the main dish at your engagement party get-together, bridal party blowout, and rehearsal dinner soiree. Select all-time classic topping combinations or get crazy with unforgettable and unexpected new taste sensations for your pizza-loving guests. Let The Painted Table catering team suggest popular combinations.

    5. Soft Pretzels and Custom Beverages

    Tie the knot with your reception spread! Soft pretzels and imaginative dipping sauces are the pleasurable appetizers of choice to stave off hunger for guests that are ready to charge into the main meal ahead of schedule. Add a customized wedding beverage, and you’re displaying your distinct personalities long before guests view your wedding cake and cake topper. We’ll create the perfect signature cocktails to work in tandem with your dipping sauce and additional appetizer flavors.

    6. Mini Tacos Paired with Tequila Shots

    This is just one example of cocktail and appetizer pairings that go well with weddings. Bite-sized tacos, filled with tantalizing ingredients perch atop a lime for a quick squeeze into a cooling shot of tequila. Or ask us for suggestions that pair other finger-foods with your favorite beverages. Port wine and stuffed mushrooms? Sliders and mini beer steins? Gazpacho and savory grilled cheese sandwich nibbles? The Painted Table delivers your pleasure.

    7. Donut Walls

    The versatility of this sweet catering trend is beyond belief! Choose your favorite flavors and color combinations to add whimsical glam for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, engagement party, or bridal shower. Guests take individual donuts from our chic presentation on the table or remove them from right off the sign. It’s dessert finger food at its best!

    8. Pets at Weddings

    Including extended family members, such as your children and stepparents, are an eternal way to demonstrate your love and commitment to one another. Include your fur babies. They can accompany you up the aisle, decorated as flower children and even act as ring bearers (place your wedding rings inside a special purse attached to their collars). Wrap your wedding theme around your pets—Display your equestrian side, your love of bunnies, your affinity for beagles, how your heart takes flight with macaws, and your love of all catty things, by including their images with table décor, signage, and cake toppers. The Painted Table is the source of endless ideas.

    9. Picnic Brunch Bridal Showers
    (with bottomless mimosas, too!)

    Imagine a sunny day brunch that mimics a picnic at the park, beach, or forest. This cozy and comfy party features cushions and pillows that encourage guests to sit cross-legged or stretch out their legs upon the covered ground. A low-lying table can include posh décor (silk table runners, china, and pastel-colored beverage glasses) or rustic chic (checkered table runner with vintage plates and soda glasses). The Painted Table guides you to the style that complements your taste.

    10. Yosemite Elopements (Picnic Style)

    Perched upon a granite rock overlooking Yosemite Valley or on a secluded forest path, cover the ground with a blanket and enjoy a special picnic basket filled with everything you need to celebrate your wedding day. Toast with champagne, and then enjoy a stuffed picnic basket filled with uncommonly delicious appetizers, gourmet sides and entrees, and of course, our heavenly desserts. You choose the number of courses to include and the flavor combinations, and we provide the basket, plating, glasses, and extra-special touches. Share an idyllic picnic as your first meal together as newlyweds!

    Be ready for all the mix and mingle fun, all to honor our Fresno area LGBTQ+ community.

    Picture this: a sweltering hot Central Valley summer day.  You venture out and escape to the serene nature found along the banks of the San Joaquin River. You dine on sumptuous cuisine that only The Painted Table’s artistry can offer. But you’re not just sitting on shore—You are seated at a long, elegantly set table in the river! With your feet immersed in the cool currents, you dine on a unique five-course meal designed just for the occasion.

    This isn’t a dream. Here at the Painted Table, we transform extraordinary culinary adventures into reality. We painted outside the lines with event planning that visited the realm of the unexpected for our “Dinner in the Water,” in collaboration with Fresno’s Underground Supper Series, for our June 10th event.

    Experimental menus paired with exquisite cocktails are the signature of Underground Suppers. From delicate appetizers, that included strawberry and ricotta crostata and fried smelt served with a fine ginger-seasoned dipping sauce, to a refreshingly spicy cucumber and coconut salad, our 40 guests were poised for the main entrée: braised short ribs brushed with fig and apricot glaze. The dessert teased tongues with a bounty of flavors and textures: our guests delighted in velvety lime curd served with pickled green apple 3 ways, sesame crumble, candied ginger, and sorrel.

    Only the finest team of event pros can produce such a successful escape. The Modernist astutely created a specially crafted cocktail to pair with our menu. Beautiful flowers by Botanique Floral Artistry adorned our long table covered with crisp linens from The Linen Shoppe. Our guests sat under hanging golden lights strung by Light Up The Walls, and DC Photography Studios captured the entire event.

    This kind of fantastical culinary getaway is what we’re known for at The Painted Table. Impeccable event planning and execution is in our wheelhouse. What’s your vision for your upcoming event? From an intimate dinner party to a big blowout celebration, we’re here to make your vision come to life. Contact our in-house event design team at (559) 443-7199.

    Bio shared from Amy Jaye at Fresno's Underground Suppers:

    I’m a Midwestern gal originally from the Windy City who grew up in a large family filled with exemplary hostesses. Always wanting to be in the thick of things, at the age of five I learned to play tambourine on “Jeremiah was a Bullfrog” for the band that performed at every family wedding. It was a sure gig at least three times a summer and cemented my love for events that bring people together. 

    I’ve spent more than twenty years planning festivals, conventions, and meetings in the entertainment, software, and hospitality industries, all the while helping friends and family organize the special moments of their lives. I’ve always loved to experience things in new and clever ways, so when it was time to carve my own path in the events industry, I chose to produce events that create community through food and travel experiences. The result is Fresno’s Underground Suppers and Bird and Stone Collective. 

    You might call me a traditionalist with a twist; I would say I am the original Mini Cooper updated with the new technology of today. Like a traveler from a bygone era, I dress up when I get on an airplane and check my suitcase, rather than put everything in the overhead bin. But my carry-on is filled with the latest gadgets to keep me busy and a pair of comfy socks so I can ditch my shoes. Who takes tea with cream (not milk) and espresso black, but also loves trying new flavors of kombucha and unusual craft cocktails? That’s me. And even though I love fancy food like caviar and oysters for a special occasion, there is nothing as tasty as Chicago deep dish pizza. Well, maybe cupcakes. Or a hot dog eaten in the bleachers at Wrigley Field.
