Earlier this week (on Tuesday, to be exact), I was thrilled to be invited to Seasons 52′s spring Guest Appreciation Event at the Tampa location. I’d never been to a Guest Appreciation Event before, so I was eager to see what it was all about! So, I dressed myself up and Justin and I prepared ourselves for a lovely evening!

Upon entering the restaurant, we were escorted back to their large banquet area where the event was being held. Tables were set up throughout the area, replete with appetizers and small plates…and wine! All of the wines from the “Drink Them Before They’re Famous” list were available for tasting, paired alongside food items that would complement them.
We enjoyed pork tenderloin (cooked perfectly with a light pink center…just right!), artichoke stuffed artichokes, spinach stuffed mushrooms, an assortment of flatbreads, and sea scallops. The food was constantly being brought out, so it was always fresh from the kitchen: yum!
Justin and I made sure to visit each table and sample everything there was to offer. My favorite (as always) was the artichoke stuffed artichokes: I can’t get enough of those little guys!
Oh, and we couldn’t forget about dessert either, now could we? Seasons 52 had all of their Mini Indulgence desserts on display for us to try, and I could not help myself: I may or may not have sampled a few of them…yum!
I mean, seriously: just look at them, all laid out perfectly in rows. How was I supposed to pick only one? I think that would have been impossible. Right?
In the end, we had a wonderful time attending the Guest Appreciation Event. It was definitely a great way for Seasons 52 to thank their regular customers, and also to sample some items that you may not have ordered previously! I hope they continue with hosting these events in the future! Thanks again to Seasons 52 for extending an invitation to me.
