Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Venetian Masquerade at Mercato della Pescheria

I’ve always wanted to host a Masquerade Party.

When we partnered with Mercato della Pescheria for a fun end of October event, my first idea was “OMG, we should have a Venetian Masquerade”. This was definitely one of the best events we’ve had with the Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- we got to sample the entire happy hour menu (which is pretty damn fantastic) and enjoy it in the private wine cellar room!

First off- this room is BEAUTIFUL. It’s a large square room that seats around 15 and is adjacent to the restaurant wine cellar. It’s also in a wonderful, secluded corner so it’s very private, event without the curtains being closed. There were 11 of us so we had plenty of space and the table was enormous so we had lots of room for our fun food photos!

We also had some fun creating a themed swagbag- Masquerade Masks! 
Or more accurately, sheet masks. We had some amazing sponsors-

Corcell provided the most gorgeous lace sheet masks ever (these were made for selfies)
Bio-Republic sent us some fabulous pomegranate masks (and it’s Pomegranate Month)
Lisse provided some really wonderful rejuvenating masks (perfect after a long week)
Biobelle sent us some fun hydrating pieces (so useful now that it’s cooling down) 
Sugarpova gave us Halloween treats (I’m so obsessed with these Spooky Sour gummies)
Wish Formula provided more of their amazing Bat Eye Masks (Seriously, try these, they’re so fun)

We sampled every food item on the happy hour menu-

Olives- Smashed olives tossed with fresh citrus and chili oil
Seafood Croquettes- Crispy panko coated over Calabrian Aioli

Steamed Mussels- Tossed in a white wine and garlic sauce, with housemade chorizo

Bruschetta- Fresh tomatoes, basil, toasted Foccacia, Aged Balsamic and Olive Oil
Crispy Calamari- Lightly breaded with a rustic tomato sauce

Mercato Oyster Plate- Oysters on the half shell

Tuna Tartar- Ahi tuna, cucumber, spiced pistachios and Calabrian Aioli

Everything was delicious and plentiful! Our wonderful server brought out one serving of each item for everyone at the table and then refilled accordingly when we let him know what we liked best!
It was so fun to experience all these fun new items as a group and vote on which pieces we liked best (the seafood croquettes and tuna tartar narrowly won because all the dishes were so good).

Of course, we couldn’t resist taking a ton of selfies with our masks!
Fun Tip- A bunch of us got masks at the dollar store!

A huge, huge thank you to Mercato della Pescheria for hosting our event and to Ava Rose Agency for setting up this wonderful dinner! Another big thank you to Corcelle, Bio-Republic, Lisse Hydrogen, Biobelle, Sugarpova, and Wish Formula for gifting us with so many great goodies for our Halloween treats! As usual, all opinions are my own!
