Virgilio’s Grand Opening – November 7th

From The Owner –

“It’s fast approaching, our Grand Opening Celebration. Saturday, Nov 7th is the day! Yep, all day we will be celebrating our new location here at The Factory next to Lily Mae’s and Clay Fusion. We have so much going on and we just keep adding new things as we go.

The Olives are getting ready to make their grand appearance for the first time in Wake Forest. They’ve made such a name for themselves already.

Olivio and I are cooking up some good stuff to munch on and Vito he is getting the wines and beers ready. Virgilio, well he’s the boss, so he just oversees everything we do. Heehee

The line-up is as follows:

8am to 11am — free mini mimosas made with some pretty delicious Champagne. Coffee drinks (lattes, americanos, etc), hot chocolate, and baked goods will be available for purchase as well.

11am is the Ribbon Cutting with the Wake Chamber.

12pm-1pm the Olives arrive and they are very excited. They’ll be passing out candy to the kids, info about the days activities and a little something interesting to adults.

1pm to 3pm we’ll have face painting and tattoos for the kiddos. Pizza samples provided by Ziggy’s and their new owners from New Haven CT, serving New Haven style pizza.

3pm -4:45pm the Olives are out and about again.

4pm-7pm The Triangle Sons of Italy will host a wine tasting. They are charging $9.00 per person. Check out their facebook page for details.

8pm-10pm it’s live music with Mariah and Anthony, wine tasting, free appetizers and a bunch of fun. I have some pretty cool customers and friends, so come hang out with us. You’ll have a great time. Bruno from Bruno’s Seafood and Steaks is a friend of mine and is cooking up a little something to add to the flavor of the evening.

We’re going to have a blast. Come join us. It’s always a big deal at Virgilio’s. The Olives wouldn’t have it any other way.

Ciao for now. See you here! Margarita”
