Although rain postponed the event for a week, Long Island Elites couldn't be held back from enjoying a beautiful sunset on the patio of Verace in Islip. With Verace's continuing effort to reduce both our impact on the environment and diner's wallets, they offer wines shipped directly to the restaurant in Eco-Kegs, which save the cost of glass bottles, corks, cases, etc. Elite's got to enjoy local wine from Raphael Vineyards courtesy of this wine on tap system. Everyone agreed that going green never tasted so good!
Wining is fun, but wining and dining is really where the party's at. Verace covered this base by serving homemade pastas, an antipasto station with assorted meats and cheeses, seasonal coponata, Verace special meatballs, tomato and fig bruschetta, crostini with cheese and honey, and baked clams. The food was so good that Chris I yelped, "It was so good that I felt my grandmother giving me the evil eye all the way from her house because I was enjoying it too much."
Rounding out the entertaining evening, Elites were jazzed by the acoustic guitar performance, and even Yelp's own Jane K played role of "The World's Worst Caricature Artist". Franco C said it best when he yelped, "With the music, the food and the people, you totally forgot you were on Long Island and felt like you were on vacation."
