Lorenzo's 50th Birthday

Wednesday, May 18 2011

Celebrating 50 years surrounded by family and friends.

Sunday, May 15th marked a milestone for Lorenzo Scarpone as he celebrated his 50th Birthday along with family and friends at The Winery on Treasure Island. 

He wants to thank everyone for coming and all those that donated their time, talents and products to make it a fun and memorable event: Brooks Stratmore of Stone Valley Farms in Alamo, for providing the delicious pig - they raise heritage breeds and are local! Gary Rulli of Rulli for donating his restaurant to roast the pig and for creating the fantastic desserts and phenomenal cake! He would also like to thank Arcangelo Esposito of Belfiore Cheese Co (Berkeley) and Michele Lanza of Fresca Italia, Inc (Brisbane) for the wonderful and tasty cheese assortments, Domenico Cardano of Grana Et Vina for making and cooking all the delicious pizza, and Vera Ciammetti and her volunteers from Slow Food for their endless help and tireless efforts.

In addition, he would like to acknowledge and thank once again his friend Gene Burns of KGO Radio's popular "Dining Around" for his kind and generous speech. 

It was a wonderful party with wonderful food and wines, family and friends, music, laughter and great memories.
