What comes to mind if I ask you to picture tables set with classic Italian food, smooth (adult) drinks, the finest cigars, and a little “ol’ blue eyes” in the background? No, it’s not an old picture of the Rat Pack. It’s actually an evening event at Maggiano’s Richmond- their Cigar and Pasta dinner event!!
When you arrive, the tables are all set- a la fresco around the lovely fountain.
Now, we don’t just jump into a bowl of pasta. The menu for this evening has been set just right.
So let us begin with a little antipasto to kick it off.
Feeling parched? Love to support local fare? Then Belle Isle Premium Moonshine it is! A Virginia born craft spirit, that also offers flavor infused variations. Handmade from 100% organic corn, we learn that they are quadruple charcoal filtered and are distilled to a lower of proof than vodka but higher than whiskey. Which is probably what gives it its smooth enjoyable finish, truly not the moonshine from the past.
The flavors are well balanced and true. Belle Isle offers recipes on their websites, too.
It is a cigar event too….. our local cigar retailer Havana Connections has us covered! Each attendee received two cigars. Not just any off a shelf- but a cigar from two of the most widely known and established cigar makers; Romeo y Juliet’s and H. Uppman
With all the elements in place, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy!
In true Maggiano’s fashion, they know how to feed family!
Don’t forget to leave some space for dessert!
What an evening!! Yes, “memories are made of this”!!
Great friends, family, fun, and food!Maggiano’s is the place to be!!
