BUDDY “CAKE BOSS” VALASTRO HOSTS TWO EVENTS:
‘SWEET ESCAPE: AN EVENING OF BUDDY, BEIGNETS, BONBONS & BOOZE’ AND “THE ULTIMATE BIG CAKE AND CRAFT COCKTAIL AFTER-PARTY WITH BUDDY V.”
CULINARY CELEBRITIES APPEARED IN FRONT OF UNIQUE WALL OF DONUTS
The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas, along with Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit, satisfied diners’ sweet tooth as everyone’s favorite baker, Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro, as he hosted ‘Sweet Escape: An Evening of Buddy, Beignets, Bonbons & Booze,’ at The Aquatic Club at The Palazzo.
As guests walked into the poolside soiree, they were greeted with a visually stunning wall made of more than three-thousand donuts, that they were able to take home and enjoy. The evening also included a unique take on bonbons and beignets from Buddy V’s Ristorante, Bouchon, Carnevino, Chica, Hong Kong Café, Lagasse’s Stadium, LAVO, Mercato della Pescheria, SushiSamba, and TAO restaurants at The Venetian and The Palazzo.
Valastro took to the stage and welcomed the crowd, “I always love any opportunity to come to The Venetian and The Palazzo with Buddy V’s and Carlo’s Bakery here it feels like a little home away from home for me.”
Chef Lorena Garcia, featured chef of the new Chica restaurant opening May 14, also made a special appearance. “I am so excited to be part of Vegas Uncork’d with The Venetian, and debut our new restaurant Chica, that is opening on May 14.
Live music played throughout the night as guests mixed and mingled.
The evening then continued at The Dorsey, a visually stunning cocktail bar at The Venetian for the “The Ultimate Big Cake and Craft Cocktail After-Party with Buddy V.” The Cake Boss rolled out a big cake for guests to enjoy and couldn’t have been happier, “Being here for Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit and hosting “Sweet Escape” as well as “The Ultimate Big Cake and Craft Cocktail After-Party” was an incredible chance to enjoy this beautiful property, share some excellent treats with great foodies and fans. So much talent was here this year and I look forward to many more events with The Venetian and The Palazzo famiglia.”
