By merging a strong culinary vision with expert event production, MOSAIC prides itself on creating event experiences that wow guests and push the boundaries of what event can truly be.

Joining Chef Glenn with a surprise course is Richmond’s own, Johnny Giavos! Over the past twenty years, Johnny & Katrina Giavos have been at the forefront of Richmond’s culinary scene with the Sidewalk Café, Stella’s, Kuba Kuba, and Kitchen 64, to name just a few of their ever-expanding empire. Johnny will infuse a tropical flair into the evening with a dish paying tribute to the Spanish roots of Cuban cuisine. Come feast on what Johnny has cooking in Dover Hall’s summer kitchen, special for this evening.

Experience a romantic night under the cantina lights in Spain’s most cosmopolitan city, Barcelona, without leaving Richmond! The powerful dancers of the Latin Ballet of Virginia will enchant you with the passionate fury of flamenco and tango’s forbidden heat, two dances that are the heart and soul of Hispanic culture. And don’t miss your chance to dance with them as they teach you traditional Spanish rumba, flamenco and tango!
