Epicurean Affair at the Palazzo

On May 24, 2012 the Nevada Restaurant Association (NvRA) once again hosted the Las Vegas Epicurean Affair, poolside at the Palazzo with some of the top world renowned chefs. NvRA partnered the event with The Palazzo and The Venetian for the public to experience the gourmet offerings along with the nightclubs and beverage purveyors. A surprise drink of the night was Fruit Loops from Wirtz Beverage Nevada. Andrew Pollard, the beverage development specialist, was there to pour the cocktails. I swear I was having a Fruit Loop Breakfast.

The Epicurean Affair was an evening of culinary splendor with the most delicious
hors d’ oeuvres from the very best chefs who have made Las Vegas a dining destination of the world.

Some of the outstanding booths were Diego, Maggiano’s, Carnevino Italian, Steakhouse, CUT Steakhouse, LAVO, TAO, Valentino, Hash House A Go Go and many more.

Adding to the splendor of the event were the beautiful body painted ladies that caught the eye of everyone and added to the festivities of the affair.

Bacardi was represented by Misty Rose dressed as Wolf Berry and Nicole Elizabeth dressed as Black Razz. Taking the time to pose with them is Las Vegas’ royal couple Yvette Brown of the Cosmopolitan Connection, hailing from Great Britain and her soon to be fiancĂ©, Eric Auger, Honorary Consul of France at Los Angeles Consulate. They bring class and elegance to Las Vegas events.

Hosting for Azare at the Palazzo was Chima Simone who is noted for being the Reality Show Big Brother 11. Chima was part of the Brains Clique on the show and when I asked her if reality shows are real, she said the Reality shows are not reality, but her intelligence is real. She will be going back to college to get her Masters in Business Administration.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the educational programs of the NvRA and the educational programs. I am looking forward to the next Epicurean Affair and I hope to meet all of you there next year.
