Canaletto Celebrates Carnevale Venice-Style
Details after the jump!
Now through March 8, celebrants will be treated to nightly live entertainment. In addition, traditional Carnevale beverages and sweets are featured on the happy hour menu. See what executive chef Maurizio Mazzon has dreamed up for this joyous occasion between 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, March 5, chef-partner Alonso Sanna is teaching a seasonal class named "All About Artichokes." For $29, participants will be treated to a "hands-on" approach to cooking not only artichokes but other select vegetables. Interested parties are encouraged to RSVP by phone or in person. Cooking begins promptly at noon.
Sunday, March 6, children are invited to decorate traditional Venetian masks to their liking with the chance to win prizes. Masks, pizza and soft drinks will be provided, free of charge. A great weekend activity. Get there when the fun begins at 1 p.m.
Ultimo Giorno de Carnevale, the final celebratory dinner showcasing a regional menu of food and wine from Tretino, is scheduled for Tuesday, March 8. Costumed performers will be meandering throughout Canaletto's dining areas for your enjoyment. Contact the restaurant for menu details or to make a reservation.
With all these options, I predict the secondary structure at Fashion Island might be your designated parking area for the near future.
