We're Almost There!
We've signed the contract and sent it to Salerno's so the Winter dinner is almost set. As soon as they confirm that the place is ours, we'll create the event here at the website and let you register.
TONE Winter Dinner set for March 7, 2015
This year's TONE Winter Dinner will take place at Salerno's in scenic Onset, Mass. on Saturday night, March 7, 2015. We're planning a delicious catered buffet dinner preceded by a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres hour. Salerno's is a function facility located in a historic 1800's building in the heart of the Onset harborfront district. It features a wonderful old-time dark wood bar in the cocktail area and a lovely main dining room for our buffet dinner. The dinner cost has been set at $50.00 per person.

Onset throbs with life during the summer and is often a stop for the Long Island TONE contingent as they journey to Maine. It will be cold and quiet when we arrive, but we should have the place to ourselves and the winter water views are often as uniquely spectacular as their summer counterparts. Onset sits on the northern edge of the Cape Cod Canal and is easy to reach by car. It's basically at the end of the I-495/MA Rt. 25 multi-lane highway that leads to the Bourne Bridge and Cape Cod: a snap to drive to.
TONE has also reserved a block of 15 rooms at the nearby Inn on Onset Bay. This charming old Victorian era house has been transformed into a modern day inn with all the amenities that TONE members would expect. The rooms have been recently refurbished and all feature comfortable queen and king beds, modern baths, and in some cases spectacular harbor views and in-room fireplace. The Inn on Onset Bay is the perfect counterpart to our selection of Salerno's for this winter's gathering.
The Inn is only a short distance from Salerno's so dinner guests can park at the inn and walk up to dinner. March 7 is only one day later than the full moon so if it's a clear night expect a gorgeous view of the harbor (which we walk right past).
