Delano 4th Anniversary, “Skål” Party

Since last time we have been to Melusina it was not amazing, we were not really convinced when we received the invitation for Delano Magazine anniversary.

It was indeed a great party, with amazing food and a lot of drinks.

If you don’t know if, Delano is a magazine published by Maison Moderne. It is written in English and is talking about lifestyle, events, business. The printed edition is monthly, while on the website you can subscribe the newsletter “10 things to do this week” that is my favorite bit. I am always waiting to receive it each and every Tuesday 🙂 Not only several different kind of events are included – theatre, nightlife, family events – but also each and every time they give you the possibility to win tickets for concerts, shows, performances.

The magazine is already 4 years old and as every year, Delano was partying with a special theme – linked to a specific country or culture, it has been Ireland, India and England, and this year was dedicated to the Nordic countries.

The party was on invitation only between 6.30 and 8.30 pm and, even if we arrived pretty early, we had to queue a bit as it was already packed! Melusina has been dressed up for the occasion: an igloo and a mountain hut with hot wine and savory bites on the way to the entrance, Nordic flags all over, hostess with Finnish hats and futuristic lights.

We drank cremant and ate couple of appetizers prepared by Njörd, the Nordic eatery with restaurants in Kirchberg and Hamm. The bites were delicious – the herrings one was my favorite – but it was quite complicated gaining yours in the middle of the crowd.

The music, with DJ Paloma Summer, was also cool – they played great 90s pop and disco classic and made me feel back a teenager for some hours.

After the prizes of the contest were assigned – IKEA voucher and Prolingua training – we moved next door to Notaro for a pizza. It was unexpectedly crowded for a Tuesday night, as most of the people from Delano party had our same idea. The pizza is the only thing I really like on Notaro menu and it was as usual super yummi – I always go for the Rustica, with Parma ham, mozzarella, arugula and cherry tomatoes – food picture cannot be in Sepia tone, sorry 🙂
