The conversation starts with you.




Modeled after Dolley Madison’s White House gatherings of the early 1800’s,  Dolley Madison Dinners brings together socially minded citizens for a lively salon-style conversation about topics of political and cultural interest.  Guests will prepare for the evening by previewing  a selection of media at home — a news article, editorial or video provided in advance by the host.   When guests arrive, they will be treated to a social atmosphere, filled with good food,  good company, and good conversation, concluding with a dollop of ice cream so that everyone returns to their  homes in good cheer!
