Staff member Judy tells us about her recent trip to Sonoma for the International Film Festival Latin-themed after-party
We went up for the third night of the Sonoma Film Festival and arrived just in time for the Latin Fiesta Friday to begin. The party was located al fresco in the “backlot” venue, right in the middle of Sonoma’s town square and it was a perfectly warm evening. We donated the Gloria Ferrer champagne gift basket and Round Hill wine and gourmet gift basket to raffle off at the end of the festival and it was great to see them displayed in all their glory in this wonderful venue!
The fiesta was full of festival goers and sponsors, all adorned with their festivals passes, who were all celebrating their Fridays! We made our way through the tent, bouncing around to the live music performed by Carlos Herrera Band and sipping on wines provided by Festival Sponsors Ceja Vineyards and Robledo Family Winery. We mingled and chatted with other guests about the film festival; asking about the different movies and events that had occurred.
After the fiesta, we were still hungry and stopped by The Plaza Bistro and ordered the calamari dipped in lemon garlic and spicy aioli and the Pan Sauteed Scaloppine, which were both delicious! We knew it was a cool spot as it was packed with filmmakers and other industry people all celebrating their successes!
