The main courtyard at Harbor Nights Primavera event.
Each of the tables in the VIP section have linens, special flutes and flatware. The centerpiece is a menu card, the flip side is your parties name because the VIP tables are reserved just for you!
At the 2015 Harbor Nights Primavera event, each VIP table received a great antipasto plate (for sharing between two guests).
The VIP antipasto plate included vegetables like summer squash, zucchini, peppers and grilled artichoke.
There were three meats and a dry, sharp, aged cheese along with a few olives and grilled artichoke.
One of the warm passed items at the 2015 Harbor Nights Primavera event were these amazing Risotto Short Rib Arancias. (VIP section only.)
Another VIP exclusive were the warm Chicken Olive Tapenades (from the 2015 Harbor Nights Primavera event).
This take on a Shrimp, Bacon and Feta Bruschetta was amazing, because it was served in small lettuce cups and not bread! (A VIP area exclusive.)
These little "shots" were a lot of fun as well. The Pipette of Tomato & Mozarella with Balsamic Pomegranite Gastrique were exclusive to the VIP section at the 2015 Harbor Nights Primavera event.
There's usually one cocktail available at Harbor Nights. At the 2015 event, a Vodka, Cranberry, and Lime mix was being offered.
