Small Pleasures’ Stir It 28 Event Menu

I just wanted to take a minute to share with you the menu small pleasures is planning to serve at the Stir It 28 event in Los Angeles. We'll be presenting up an "interactive" bruschetta bar (interactive is definitely a trend for 2010 in catered parties- no stodgy buffets or sit downs))  with assorted crostini and toppings so that guests can assemble their own bruschetta, and a luscious spread of desserts.

I think it's a great menu- perfect for a cocktail "mix and mingle" type gathering. I'm also very grateful and excited that Tom Coffey, one of our very best servers will be doing his magic to create a beautiful display, and the lovely Aida Cadres will be on hand to help out, as well.

L.A.'s own, The Liquid Muse is partnering with Grey Goose Vodka and Fre Alcohol-Removed Wines for the cocktail program for the  the event. She's created a signature cocktail -“Hearts for Haiti”-just for the day.

I've done a walk through of Greg@sippitysup's home (Greg's hosting us for the event) and believe me, it's a lovely home. All in all, it is promising to be a great way to spend an afternoon, and on top of that, to contribute to a very worthy cause. Now I'd say that's a win/win.
