Festa di Primavera
It was a perfect plan – Joe Vicari from Andiamo Restaurant Group and Chuck Bennett from The Social D to host a celebration of spring, “Festa di Primavera,” with an unlimited supply of Moet et Chandon, a constant flow of yummy hors d’oeuvres from the Andiamo kitchen, and about 150 fabulous friends.
The party took place on May 15, and was slated to materialize on the Andiamo Riverfront terrace with its breathtaking view of the Detroit River and the downtown lights of Windsor, Ontario. One problem; Michigan weather. Mother Nature had another plan and made a day that was a little too chilly and a little too damp for an outside gig.
But no worries.
The good folk at Andiamo turned an area of the dazzling GM Wintergarden just outside Andiamo into a cozy lounge. Guests were also given the full run of the spacious restaurant, save the main dining room. In one area, the fabulous band, Notorious, entertained with a roster of popular tunes that kept guests out of their seats. It got so good at one point that R&B diva, Millie Scott, who attended with her husband, David, took the mic for a song that had guests screaming in delight.
So, a little unpleasant weather didn’t even create a glitch for this party group. Good friends, stimulating conversation, delicious food, fabulous champagne, amazing venue, incredible entertainment – just another fun event from The Social D. Big thanks to Joe Vicari and his team for making it special. See you at the next one!
