Sactown Elites Spend An Evening In The Foothills

What better way to escape the hustle and bustle of city life than a quick escape to the Sierra Nevada foothills? That's exactly where Sacramento elites went to enjoy a classy evening of food, wine, hard cider and great music at the acclaimed Sienna restaurant.

Our hosts couldn't have provided a warmer and more intimate setting, with two rooms and a large, handsome bar set aside exclusive for elites and their guests to enjoy. Candles flickered on tabletops and outdoor fireplaces burned on their luxurious patio, although most yelpers chose to stay indoors to avoid the autumn chill. With the scene set, well-dressed yelpers piled plates high with a sampling of the restaurants eats: lettuce wraps, coconut shrimp and mushroom bruschettta, pepperoni and margherita pizzas. Testifies Cindy S: "All of the food was phenomenal. It made us want more so we had to try an order of the short rib ravioli. What an awesome choice! We look forward to coming back and trying EVERYTHING else on the menu!"

Good food is always a little better when you have a tasty adult beverage to wash it down. Besides the selection of signature cocktails and house-brewed ales at the Sienna bar, Helwig Winery offered up tastings of vinos like their "Sea of Grapes" zinfandel. Says Jennifer W, "I'm their zin's new biggest fan. I look forward to planning a trip to Plymouth to check out the winery and take home a few bottles. Crispin Cider served up generous pours of Apple and Pear hard ciders. According to Christina S, these were "so crisp and refreshing that I could have chugged a whole bottle!"

Combine all this with some friendly folks and smooth DJ grooves from the very professional Bryan Greenwalt of Music & More Entertainment and you've got the perfect recipe for Elite Event success! But don't take my word for it. "It was almost uncanny what a good job Bryan did matching the songs to the mood of the party," exclaims Sophia A.
