What A Night!

Wow, what an evening we had – Our supposedly quiet “soft” opening was anything but! The place was jammed from 4pm til closing. It was SO thrilling to see all our friends (we don’t have customers – they’re all our friends) come out to support us.

Our staff was awesome – no one missed a beat. The food from the kitchen was amazing (Gail’s Mini Red Velvet heart-shaped Cakes were a big hit!). The music from Jen & Jerry was perfect. And visiting with all our friends was divine.

If that was just the “soft opening,” we can’t wait for our Grand Opening! We’ll keep you posted on when that will be.

It was amazing, everyone – Thank you SO MUCH!

GREAT NEWS! For those that haven’t heard, our newly added wine bar will be open for Valentine’s Day! Plenty of great local and regional wines on hand, 4 different beers on tap (plus a great bottle selection), and awesome food from our newly remodeled kitchen. Chef Ricardo (new to Zizzo’s!), Christine, and our dessert guru Gail Brown have some wonderful treats in store for you.

Happy hour runs from 4p-6p, and the piano bar starts at 6pm and we’ll be here for as long as you need us. We can’t wait – See you then!
