Not many things in life can be guaranteed. However, this is one guarantee I am willing to make! When you attend this gathering of INCREDIBLE pizza and people, you are guaranteed to have an EPIC experience because you will...
1. Make HISTORY!
"Firsts" only happen ONCE and we want YOU to be part of this one! May 14th, Farinella is hosting our VERY FIRST Cookaap event, where we are bringing our passion for pizza and people together under one roof. Amazingly enough, this party falls a few short weeks before our FIRST Anniversary here at our 61st Street location. That's right, we moved into this location a year ago! So come be part of one of our many firsts! It would be an honor to share this FIRST with you and celebrate the night away! Let's make it EPIC!
2. Rub Elbows With The Chef
Farinella's very own Executive Chef, Alberto, will be in the house! If there is anybody who knows how to have a great time, this would be the guy! He works hard, but knows how to have fun too! All work and no play is a bit over-rated don't ya think? Mingle and chat with the master-mind behind the details of this event! Yep, he developed the recipes, menu and flow of the evening, especially for you! If you are lucky, maybe he will even give you a little impromtu freestyle rap...shhh don't tell him I told you...but he is an internationally recognized MC (and he's GOOD!). Alberto has pulled out all the stops to create an amazing time for you! So come ready to PARTY; he is ready to PARTY with YOU!
3. Meet New & Exciting People
Cookapp is growing rapidly, as more people are joining the movement. Individuals in NYC are looking for fresh and exciting ways to connect with others like themselves in a safe, enjoyable and comfortable environment. We have partnered with Cookapp to create that space for you, on May 14th, here at Farinella! Face it, some social gatherings can be just plain awkward for at times, but when there is food (especially PIZZA and WINE) that awkwardness magically disappears. So, don't worry about not knowing anyone or facing awkward moments of silence...cricket..., there will be none of that here! Come ready to meet people from all over the world, who love food and are looking to share an evening indulging in what we all love most...PIZZA!
4. Listen To Great Music
Another great connector of people is music and BOY do we have a playlist in store for you! The DJ will be in full-swing with the latest hits and ready to take your requests! So whether you enjoy a little Raggae, Hip-Hop, Indie, Neo-Soul, Irish Celtic Folk, Blues, Jazz, Latin, Pop or Rock...just ask Mr. DJ and he will make sure you have enough ear candy to rock the night away!
5. Sip Wine, Wine, Wine and More Wine
What is a party without wine...I will tell you what it is...BORING! Let's just say, with our endless supply of wine on deck, this party will be anything BUT boring! Our chef has carefully selected Italian Imported wines that pair exceptionally with the appetizers, pizza and dessert on the menu for the evening. Just you wait and see!
6. Eat AMAZING Pizza & Other Delectable Bites!
Last, and CERTAINLY not least, the food is going to be EXQUISITE! I mentioned the food last...because that is typically where we bring out the BEST (ya know...gotta save the best for last!). Come with a ready palette and a healthy appetite, because we are going to FEED you well! The culinary highlight of the evening is that the Chef is serving appetizers and pizza found only in his "Secret Menu", created specifically for this event. The appetizers are loaded with nothing but FIVE STAR ingredients; quail egg, lump crab and highly sought after truffle mousse. Afterwards, you will be served five different varieties of pizza. The pizza, I guarantee you is unlike any pizza you have ever tried! Have you ever had the opportunity to indulge in an ALL BLACK pizza crust?! I didn't think so! The foundation is a Squid Ink pizza crust, doused with a zesty marinara sauce and topped with baked squid rings. It is the most refreshing pizza EVER! It is delightfully different and out-of-this-world DELICIOUS! But, I will stop there...it is important to leave something to the imagination. Just make sure you are here to try it for yourself!
