The Concierge Holiday Walk at The Village Shops on Venetian Bay!
On Monday, November 5th, The Village Shops hosted the annual Holiday Walk for the Southwest Florida Concierge and Guest Services Association. The Holiday Walk is designed to express profound appreciation for the Naples’ concierges and the tireless work they perform throughout the year to ensure satisfaction of tourists and local businesses.
The evening of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails began at Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar. As the extraordinary concierges checked in, they were greeted with Village Shops goodie bags filled with gifts from The Village and exclusive offers to the retailers and restaurants.
The concierges, one by one, made their way out to Bayside’s Upper Deck, overlooking the Bay, where they enjoyed wine, appetizers, and conversations with friends. The views, wine, and food were plentiful!
The next stop was T-Michaels Steak & Lobster House. Owner, Ty Ernst, greeted the concierges at the door, as the hostess showed them to their seats in the dining area. T-Michaels served wine, specialty cocktails, signature shrimp, and crab cakes.
MiraMare Ristorante was stop three. The concierges filed in as owner, Sal Sinzieri, brought out specialty pizzas, calamari, and beverages of choice. The plates and glasses were clear in no time and off to stop four!
The ladies and gentleman headed to the north side of The Village where they were generously greeted at The Village Pub with gift certificates to add to the goodie bags. The excitement was evident, as each looked forward to coming back to enjoy pub grub at the friendly, neighborhood hotspot.
Next up was Fish Restaurant! Fish provided a wide assortment of appetizers and beverages including sushi, oysters, shrimp, steak bites, and sliders. Once again, the plates were clear shortly after being set down!
Last but certainly not least was M Waterfront Grille, closing out the night with decadent desserts and specialty cocktails. The concierges were the first to sample the “Skinny Pina Colada”, a new drink off their newly launched Specialty Cocktail menu. M Waterfront Grille also provided holiday goodie bags for each guest.
The Village Shops and the six sparkling waterfront restaurants were honored to be able to create a fun-filled night for the hardworking men and women in the Southwest Florida Concierge and Guest Services Association. The Holiday Walk was a night to remember and The Village Shops is looking forward to doing it again next year!
