Pics From My Office Holiday Party!

My firm's holiday party was last night and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! We rented the front patio of Solas Restaurant in Downtown Raleigh, NC. What a sight! This is a "patio" and it's ultimately opened to the outside most nights, but in the winter they convert it to a usable space and I must say, it was beautiful! I had been to Solas before back in April of this year for my hubby's 32nd birthday. I posted a little something about my amazement then too, check it out HERE!

The set up was truly beautiful, the menu was divine, and the service was fantastic. The Executive Chef even came out to greet us after dinner to ask us if we had enjoyed our meal! Top notch in my book! With a menu like this, who could go wrong?

FIRST COURSE
Caesar Salad
White Anchovies, Crunchy Croutons
She Crab Soup
Lump Crab, Sherry, Chives

SECOND COURSE
Center Cut Filet
8oz., Cabernet Goat Cheese Butter
Shrimp Aristotle
Feta, Asparagus, Tomatoes, Capellini
Stuffed Chicken
Arugula, Goat Cheese, Sun Dried Tomatoes

ACCOMPANIMENTS
Steamed Asparagus with Lemon Butter
Creamy Lobster Risotto

FINISHING COURSE
Flourless Chocolate Torte

Everything, and I mean everything was stellar. I thoroughly recommend you dine at Solas if you haven't already. They aren't your typical restaurant. They're 3 floors of dining, mingling, drinking, and people watching greatness. Check them out: SOLAS RALEIGH

The party/dinner was alot of fun. Personally, I think it was one of our best. I hope to come back here next year!

Here are some photos from last night. I was a little iffy on my outfit. What do you think? Do you like it? Hate it? I don't get all dressed up that often...

Enjoy the pics!
