An Indulgent Tasting in Rahway: UCPAC’s Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Party


Rahway, NJ - Aside from warm, pool weather and bright green foliage, this summer also brings the Union County Performing Arts Center’s Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Party back to Rahway. This event is a yearly fundraiser for the UCPAC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission statement reads: to “provide quality programming and performances that strive to be educational, affordable, and enrich the arts within our diverse communities.” Those wishing to support the theater and attend the tasting, which will take place on June 2 from 5:30 PM- 8:30 PM at the theater’s Hamilton Stage, must be 21 or over. The event will be held outside of the venue under a tent. In the event of rain, the event will still take place and will be moved inside.

The opportunity to socialize with new and old friends and network with supporters of the performing arts makes this event a priceless experience. The wine for the evening is provided by various vendors through Witty’s Fine Wines and Liquors and Metro Liquors, located locally in Rahway. There will also be a selection of cheeses and delicious chocolates for patrons to enjoy. From 6 PM- 8:30 PM, pianist Joe Regan will provide musical accompaniment to this evening of food and friends. Regan’s achievements include winning a MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets) Award in 2007 for Best Revue and being nominated in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2015 for Piano Bar Instrumentalist.

Tickets to UCPAC’s Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Party are $25 and can be purchased online at, over the phone by calling (732) 499-8226 or in person at the box office. A package deal is also available at, which includes tickets to both the Party and “He Said, She Said,” an Ivy League of Comedy event taking place after the Party at 9 PM on the Hamilton Stage.

Two comedians, Jon Fisch and Ophira Eisenberg, the former single and the latter married, provide commentary on their very different lives. The price of the package deal is $45, meaning patrons can save $10 by buying together rather than purchasing for each event separately.

Box office hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 AM- 5 PM, with extended hours of 11 AM- 8 PM on Thursdays. The Union County Performing Arts Center’s box office is located at 1601 Irving Street, Rahway, NJ. Hamilton Stage, where both events will be held, is located at 360 Hamilton Street in Rahway and is easily accessible to major roads and public transportation.
