What a Swell Party!
Toast of the Town 2012 came to a close at Villa Ascosa, a magnificent Florentine villa nestled atop the highest point of a magical estate with gorgeous hill country views. “Magnificent” is a minimum statement when describing this home–a beautiful structure with extraordinary decorative detail work inside and out. For guests, most of the action was on the back veranda around the pool with conversation and canapes of great interest. The evening was abuzz with Cole Porter songs, performed by Groove Labs. Equally delightful was the amazing Italian fare prepared by Chef Harvey Harris of Siena Ristorante.
