Guests arrived around 10am and headed up to our second floor balcony, the perfect position from which to watch the Main Street parade. Bottomless mimosas flowed freely and guests watched floats, marching bands, horseback riders and costumed paraders as they moved by in red white and blue.
On the second floor, just inside from the balcony, guests enjoyed a continental breakfast buffet. Immediately after the Parade, our female vocalist, Melissa, belted out an incredible rendition of “Amazing Grace” which resonated through the entire building. It was chillingly beautiful. Men removed their hats, in honor.
Guests mingled and enjoyed the morning eventually finding their tables in our restaurant and out into the courtyard. As guests ordered off of the wine list, they were bouncing from table to table, visiting one another. Tables had been intentionally arranged to invite mingling and we were glad to see that guests were taking full advantage.
Food was served:
Garden tomato & asparagus salad
jumbo lump crab meat & béarnaise sauce
Shrimp etouffée with jasmine rice
Barbecue swordfish steak
with black-eyed pea succotash
Chicken fried antelope
with lemon squash risotto
Greek yogurt custard
with Fredericksburg peaches
Between courses guests continued to socialize and bless Vaudeville with a true sense of community.
Thank you, to all of our patrons!
“Rene and I enjoyed the 4th celebration you executed. Rene did watch the parade, but I got caught up in numerous conversations and completely missed it; which is a compliment to you for the ones invited which of course caused good conversation.” — Roger Cameron
