It was five years ago that fine-dining duo Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf unveiled Pazo, their Mediterranean-themed lounge and restaurant in Fells Point. So they decided to throw a party to mark the occasion, and some 360 invited guests and regulars showed up to help them celebrate.
Partygoers were greeted at the door with glasses of sparkling Cava, then had their choice of four specialty cocktails that were paired with matching-color CoverGirl lip glosses for guests to take home. Menu items from the kitchen of chef Michael Costa included bruschetta, croquetas, calamari, pizza Christina, butifarra and empanadas. And for dessert, Charm City Cakes chef Duff Goldman created a towering eight-tier chocolate espresso cake.
Non-stop entertainment included roaming jugglers and other circus-themed performers, performances by a troupe of hip-hop dancers and music provided by house DJ Ryan Patrick. Artists were on hand to create Super Art Fight, a live art-generating performance, creating a piece of wall art during the course of the party. Later, there was a live auction of the work, with proceeds going to the House of Ruth.
