ISVodka is the featured vodka of the evening. If you have never tasted it before, you’ll see why everyone is saying it’s the “smoothest vodka in the world.” It has no impurities, congeners or fusel oil to spoil your martini or experience. ISVodka uses only the purest water from glacier eskers in Iceland. This water has been filtered for thousands of years through layers of sand, gravel and clay in a valley called the “Beautiful Valley” on the eastern side of the island. Bring your friends and experience this smooth vodka together.

Frankie’s Restaurant and Steakhouse is known for prime cuts and fresh seafood a la Italian. The ambiance at Frankie’s will take you back to the Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin days with martini bar, baby grand piano, wine cellar and comfortable, oversized booths. The contemporary paintings on the wall are for sale. Dishes to try include the Dungeness Crab Cakes, Filet Mignon tenderloin in a Porcini mushroom and Port sauce, the Lobster Tail with paprika and butter and the Venison Chop farm raised in a fig and Port wine sauce.
