Ghouls, goblins, and ghosts are on the menu, Oct. 29, when The Kennebunk Inn presents A Spirited Evening Harvest Dinner, with psychic medium and spirit messenger Vicki Monroe, in its bistro-style restaurant, Academe.
Locals say the building, built in 1799 in downtown Kennebunk, Maine, is haunted by Silas Perkins, an inn clerk who passed away in the mid-20th century, who occasionally makes his spirit known by sending wine glasses flying off the shelves. Monroe will reveal details about the inn's paranormal activities as well as her experiences engaging with those who've crossed over to another life. Guests will have an opportunity to enter for a chance to receive a personal reading from Monroe during the program.
For the event, innkeeper/chefs Brian and Shanna O’Hea, who met at the Culinary Institute of America, plan a three-course dinner comprising an appetizer, choice from three entrees, and dessert for $45; tax, gratuity, and beverages are additional. Reservations are required (207-985-3351) and space is limited.
