Since 1998, the Knoxville Opera Guild has held an annual martini party to break the winter doldrums. Originally associated with the annual Rossini Festival, the event featured the Rossini Funtini Martini. In recent years, special martinis have been developed to support different themes. For example, the 2007 Martini Party celebrated the Knoxville Opera production of Carmen with a Spanish decor and featured the El Matadore martini. In 2008, the Guild chose to celebrate a fine Irish tradition with a St. Paddy’s Martini Party featuring such special martinis as the Shamrock, the Blarney Stone and the Virgin Leprechaun. In addition to a variety of great martinis, and wines for those that prefer the softer spirits, this event consists of a heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet, a silent auction, and live entertainment.
