Food / Hors d’oeuvres

From 8:30 until 11:30 for GA we’ll be serving a collection of light hors d’oeuvres prepared by world renowned chef, Betsy Davidson. Since the Bonza Bash founders are from Australia, we like to infuse some Aussie-ness into all of our events. Betsy does an amazing job of re-creating a few of our Aussie favorites and we’ve included some sweet and savory items into our menu. No matter if you’ve had these dishes before or if you’ll be trying them for the first time, you’re in for a treat:

  • Teriyaki Salmon with Cilantro Peanut Sauce
  • Tandoori Spiced Chicken & Chipotle Yogurt
  • Traditional Aussie Meat Pies
  • Traditional Aussie Vege Pies
  • Traditional Aussie Mini Pavlovas
  • Traditional Aussie Mini Lamingtons

Our VIP guests will enjoy all this plus a wider selection available in the VIP lounge.

Dress Code

As with all Bonza Bashes, dress to impress. This is a “Black Tie” event, however semi-formal cocktail attire is also acceptable. Most people will be in tuxedos, suits, gowns and cocktail dresses. Please note that jeans/sneakers will be expressly forbidden. Such clothing is not appropriate for an event of this nature, our security personnel will not be permitting entry to guests so dressed. We get so few opportunities to dress to the nines in Seattle, so take advantage of our deals and dazzle the night away in your finest!

Party With a Cause

There’s no better feeling that supporting a cause that impacts us all in our back yards. For most of us, the Puget Sound IS our backyard, and so we’re delighted to welcome back to Bonza Bash the Seattle Aquarium Society (SEAS). SEAS has been promoting the cause of marine conservation in the Puget Sound for many years now, and we’re thrilled to do our part to help their mission. Please consider giving generously at the time of your ticket purchase, and feel free to learn more about how you’ll be supporting the SEAS’s mission.
