NACE 2010

Dallas' Catering Finest gathered at the hip, cocktail-paired NACE dinner at the elegant & sexy venue, The Apartment on February 3rd, 2010. Hosts Jennifer Harris of Wynnwood Special Events & multi-talented Mixologist, Sly Cosmopoulos of Republic National Distributing Company, kept the menu (artfully designed and sculpted by Executive Chef, John Maas) fresh and exciting and the uniquely-paired cocktails flowing. Throughout the event, Sly revealed the new cocktail trends, that are bringing us back to this time-honored tradition, yet with a new breath of intrigue, such as bringing spices, herbs, and even Cocoa Puffs cereal into the mix!
