Held at the beautiful, historic oceanfront White Court Estate in Swampscott, the one-time summer home of former U.S. president John Calvin Coolidge Jr., the 4th annual Best of the North Shore was quite a night! More than 1,500 guests turned out to celebrate the Best of the North Shore Readers’ and Editors’ choice winners. VIP guests enjoyed valet parking followed by early admission to the event, tasty bites from Timothy Hopkins catering, Jules Rosé Sparkling Wine, a rosé garden, private bar, Gambino Prosecco, and luxury swag bags filled with everything from macarons from BONS winner Caramel French Patisserie in Salem to baseball caps from another BONS winner, Rumson’s Rum. However, all guests were treated like royalty at the event, as they danced under the stars to the beats of DJ Chris Roxx and sampled and sipped from some of the best wine purveyors, breweries, restaurants, chocolatiers, and bakeries on the North Shore, including Besito, Bellavella, Burtons Grill, Cider Hill Farm, Deacon Giles, Notch Brewery, Privateer Rum, Island Creek Oyster Bar, Ipswich Ale Brewery, Pipe Dream Cupcakes, and many, many more!
