Happy Holi!

Celebrate Holi in high style at Vermilion (10 W. Hubbard) from Monday, February 26 through Saturday, March 3, 2007. Although there will be a special “chaat & mithai” (street fare and traditional sweets) celebratory menu, and Holi cocktails in a myriad of colors served all week, the celebration will climax with an all-out bash and dancing on Saturday, March 3.

Guests are also invited to participate in the festivities by dressing in their colorful best to win the Vermilion “Holi Couple.”
