When the moon hits your eye… like a great Yelp event, that's amore! One of our best elite events to date, Trento trotted out incredible Italian food and cocktails for us on Monday evening. Katharine C puts it best:"Wine, pizza, and conversations of questionable merit and class flowed last night at the wonderful" Yelp's Italian Staycation.
Upon arrival, elites were greeted with frosty tall glasses of Peroni in branded glasses, goblets of wine and picture perfect blood orange and italian margaritas. Fabulous servers circulated these life saving libations as Shane Smith and the saints tuned up to thrill us with their musical stylings on Trento's perfect patio. Sharon T lived it up: "Blood orange margaritas, Peroni and wine were liberally refilled. They have a pretty spectacular staff for hosting a private event–much appreciation to them for being absolutely smashing."
Then the food arrived. And kept arriving. Platters heaped with crispy calamari, fresh margherita pizzas, chicken liver pate and pickled veggies, steaming mussels in a piping hot pesto broth, grilled breads and
hot fried risotto balls with a spicy sauce. Christa S describes the evening thusly: "From a food perspective, it was like you were at nonna's house and had no chance of leaving hungry. "
Thanks to Lauren B for taking the sweet shots of all those pretty yelpers, delectable food and delicious drinks. How did Jim L like the event? "I have reservations for dinner at Trento tonight. Does that tell you how much I liked the Yelp Italian Staycation event last night?" Yes, Jim. Yes it does.
