There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than feasting on a 92 lb piece of meat. Well that’s exactly what over 100 guests did at the Yelp Elite Holiday Hang On Hubbard this past Monday evening. Bar Umbriago couldn’t have been a more perfect setting. From the minute guests walked in was the feel of an enoteca in Italy. Combined with greens, Yelp reds, and bright lights the party really felt like the holidays.
Other than the 92 lb piece of meat, Chef Michael Ponzio also prepared 2 suckling pigs, a Charcuterie table (yes a table), a risotto & pasta station, and that’s just to name a few. The deliciousness didn’t quite end there. Three different flavors of infused Tito’s Vodka (fig,vanilla, and a spiced cranberry) and Waterbrook wines kept the yelpers full of buzzworthy holiday cheer all night long.
The stellar staff took great care of guests while lucky winner Rafael C won the opportunity to ring in the New Year with them by winning the Check In/Tip raffle. Congrats!
