The article offers information on Wine Series Dinner, a monthly themed dinner that has been introduced at Meadow Lakes Retirement Community in Hightstown, New Jersey. The first dinner was called South of Spain, which featured Spanish tapas and sangria. Due to limited space in the dining room, only between 30 and 50 residents can take part in the special meal. Jason Skinner, foodservice director of Meadow Lakes, says the residents are willing to pay a fee just to be included in the dinner.
