In the motion picture industry, it a rare feat when a movie captures the heart of America, and sometimes the world, launching a “franchise” with the chants of rabid fans demanding an encore of continued entertainment leading studio executives (no doubt with dollar signs dancing in their skulls) to rubber stamp the eventual sequel. Did he just say “sequel?” Really? It is even more rare that the sequel ever lives up to such lofty expectations… sigh. However, for what-ever-the-ungodly-number-is of Jaws 2 type gunk, there is a Godfather, Rocky or Star Wars (Empire Strikes Back) sequel as good, if not better than the first. And that is how we see the 2nd Annual Paella-Palooza going down… totally exceeding the world’s expectations. Go big or go home, I always say.
Ok, now that the lofty goals are set, we must execute. Come join us and tell how you think we did. For starters, we’re bringing in perhaps the best Paella in the region from ZuZu Tapas & Paella in downtown Napa. Pair that with some homemade Sangria from our talented party staff using some of our own juice and other ingredients (ask the staff nicely and they may just tell you the rest), and you have a late summer Latin sizzler in the making. I mean, this is the authentic stuff that takes you back to your Euro-rail, hostile-hopping trip through Malaga, Spain sitting in an alley cafe watching World Cup futbol.
To bring it all together, the Latin Fusion group Sang Matiz will be playing authentic tunes to keep the saucy vibe tingling all night long on our Yountville patio. Ole!
