"The Feast of the Hunter’s Moon Antebellum Dinner" is the poetic name for an interesting dinner: Historic Rosedale aims to evoke the 19th century on Oct. 22 with a five-course dinner from area chefs, coordinated by chef Geoffrey Blount. First, you'll have wine and canapés served on the lawn, by the 200-year-old boxwood; then you'll repair to the house, built in 1815, for a candlelit, china-and-crystal-decked supper with wine pairings. (And yes, I'm told, there will be some donning of period costumes, but not by everyone, so don't let that stop you...)
