The game was screened on HDTV’s in the restaurant’s second floor private dining rooms and inside its exclusive wine cellars, with additional furniture provided by Joe Miller of Genesis Events to enhance the ambiance of the room. Guests enjoyed complimentary dishes from Philippe’s kitchen and beverages served by Philippe’s head bartender Bobian Demce courtesy of Avion Tequila including its Reserva 44 ultra-premium tequila, Double Cross Vodka and Palette of Wines.

Along with complimentary food and beverage, guests participated in a silent and live auction for sports memorabilia and experiences, courtesy of Grandstand Sports, with a portion of the proceeds going towards the Alzheimers Association of New York City. Items up for bid included meeting Yankees Legend Mariano Rivera & All-Star Dellin Betances at “A Salute to Pinstripes” Private Event in NYC.
