Celebrating Success Social Event

Time to ditch your pajama pants and come out from behind that zoom screen!  It’s time to up your style and join us for a taste of the Mediterranean.

A beautiful restaurant whose name comes from the culinary hotspot in the Aegean Sea, the chef-driven Hydra Estiatorio Mediterranean & Bar is an up-market dining destination that goes far above and beyond your typical taverna.

Featuring: Erica Sigurdson, who will help us close the event in style!
