Who are the Best of the Baddies?


The Friends of the Cecil County Public Library invite you to a frightfully good evening at 7:00pm on October 24th at Minihane’s Irish pub and Restaurant in Elkton. We are holding a dinner fundraiser to celebrate the birthday of author Anne Rice (which actually falls on October 4) and to debate which group is the best of the baddies: Vampires or Witches?

Anne Rice is the author of the “Vampire Chronicles” and the “Mayfair Witches Collection,” hence our theme. Much of the action for these novels takes place in Anne Rice’s home town of New Orleans, so you will notice a distinct Cajun/Creole emphasis to the menu, which can be found by clicking here.

The evening will kick-off with a welcome beverage, followed by a four-course meal with beer and wine pairings. The price is $60 per person, which includes all of the items listed on the menu, along with beverage pairings, tax, gratuity, and a donation to The Friends.

We’ll award prizes throughout the evening, and there will be trivia and competitions, so be prepared to challenge your dining companions! Costumes are optional, but encouraged.

Advanced reservations are required. Reservations may be made directly through Minihane’s in person or by phone at (410) 996-0047.  Please make your reservations early, as space is limited!
