Happy Hours, Shops Open Late & NYE Wrapup!
New Year’s Eve Wrapup
The AKFF Blog Team had a fun NYE in Venice! Before the start of the evening, our Blog Editor, Janet Gervers was treated to a transforming blowdry style at Sechoir salon in Santa Monica (see our photo here.) After the tresses were in place, it was off to Primitivo Wine Bistro in Venice for a sumptuous meal. Starting with caviar and salmon topped crackers that were complimentary for each customer, then moving on to the always tasty Spanish olives with almonds and crab appetizer, we enjoyed Atlantic striped bass (NYE special) which was a meaty fish that melted in your mouth and the Spanish paella dish that was delectable with shrimp, sausage and chicken for the main course. Champagne sorbet with raspberries and blueberries was another outstanding NYE special that completed our meal.
