Christmas in October Luncheon Series
Shopping and lunching with friends are the formula for success of the popular Woman's Exchange of St. Augustine's luncheon series. The weekly luncheons began in the late 1940s when the city's hotels and tourist homes reopened after World War II to winter visitors. The luncheons include a full meal with dessert, coffee or tea, plus a $5 gift certificate to be used for shopping that day on a $10 minimum purchase. Guests may bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with lunch. Reservations must be made by phone or in person. The cost is $30. Lunch is served at noon and shopping begins at 10:30 a.m.
