East Bay Paella Party



Paella-blog2

East Bay Elites kicked-off Thanksgiving weekend with a special paella + wine party from Nora Cocina Espanola and Urban Legend Cellars. The cellar filled with festive Elites, Nora dished up both vegan and classic seafood paella, fresh from the family-sized pan, along with bite-sized pintxos. Urban Legend poured wine-friendly grenache blanc and a red blend named after Oakland's Temescal neighborhood. DJ Angel Powers kept the vibe groovy with her vinyl picks, and Elites went home with freshly tapped wine for Thanksgiving. If that's not the best way to start the long weekend, we don't know what is!

Many thanks to our 5-star hosts: Urban Legend Cellars and Nora Cocina Espanola!
