Picture a stunning atmosphere, low lighting, delicious Italian bites, wonderful services and plenty of bevvies to go around – all set to the smooth tunes of Dean Martin. Yes, this was Yelp Charlotte's Rat Pack Rendezvous at Vivace and everyone made sure to clean up nice!
Elites were treated to gorgeous Uptown views from Vivace's upstairs patio complete with arancini (fried rice balls), agnolotti, pizza, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate truffles and more. The spread was never ending and as Tim G put it plainly, "The prosciutto was fresh, the rice balls were top of the line. The food, drinks and desserts were fit for a king." Perfetto!
To properly wash down all those tasty bites, the wonderful folks at Palm Bay International poured the most delectable wine from Bertani and Feudi di San Gregorio, the red choices being Feudi Primitivo and Bertani Valpolicella, the whites Feudi Falanghina and Bertani Due Uve. But the imbibing didn't stop there, MillerCoors providing a plethora of Italia's finest beer – Peroni. Brian K "made sure to try all four great wines and cap it off with a Peroni!" What a superb selection!
But the evening wouldn't be complete without rat pack pro, Larry Tanelli, performing as our very own Dean Martin. Not only did he set the mood by serenading the ladies, posing for pictures, but he also invoked our very own yelpettes (Melissa B & Peggy C) to start up a kickline mid-song!
All of these fabulous moments were captured by the gorgeous and talented Tonya P of Poprock Photography. Check out the Flickr page with all the action and share your thoughts by reviewing the event right here. Grazie!
