Sweet Rides and Wheels Party at Audrain Auto Museum

Juan Roldan & Bill Hunter


Hosting a reception with Caribbean music, the Audrain Auto Museum kicked off its summer of “Motors and Mansions” Saturday series by entertaining at "Sweet Rides and Summer Fun" at its headquarters on Bellevue Avenue with a wine tasting. And are they ever fun!

Steel drums were festive

The elegantly restored and often one-of-a-kind vehicles are fascinating, and being serenaded by steel drummer Jeffery from PanNeubean Steel, patrons wandered among the meticulously restored cars, sipping on wines from Vickers Liquors, and hors d’oeuvres by LaForge restaurant.

Upcoming for car buffs are "Motors and Mansions at  Marble House, Chateau-sur-Mer, and Fort Adams. The Summer Gala, which raised the bar for fabulous Newport parties last summer with guest Jay Leno, will be themed as Vintage Circus, and will be held at Ochre Court on Friday, August 31.
