The evening will begin with drinks and appetizers, followed by a seated dinner and a variety of tasty desserts. Standard ticket holders will enjoy unlimited beer and wine, while VIP Guests enjoy signature cocktails at the premium full bar, along with an exclusive presentation of the Plaza’s architectural transformation plan with a champagne toast.
