Also at Beso and Eve last night was hip-hop legend and reality television star, Flava Flav.

Holyfield and his wife, Candi, enjoyed a decadent tasting prepared by Executive Cheff Matt Piekarski. The two enjoyed Eva’s signature tortilla soup and guacemole, as well as crispy friend Dungeness crab cakes served with avocado puree, rouille an golden caviar, red and golden beets served with goat cheese fondue and candied walnutes, and macaronie and cheese with lobster. For dessert, the duo enjoyed the “chocolate kiss,” a chocolate brownie served with vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce, as well as cinnamon-dusted churros.

He complemented his meal with a Long Island Iced Tea. He was overheard saying that he was particular about how they were prepared, and was happy with Beso’s rendition.

The happy couple then went upstairs to Eve, where they danced together and enjoyed a few more cocktails.

Bettis and Ward, who played together for the Pittsburgh Steelers, kicked the night out at Beso with shots of Ketel One Pineapple Vodka and Patron Tequila. Joined by a group of friends for dinner, the group enjoyed chili-rubbed skirt steak, bone-in ribeye, grilled asparagus and housemade mash.

Later, the group went upstairs to Eve where they were situated in a VIP table overlooking the packed dance floor. Bottles of Ketel One Vodka were served at the table and Bettis, Ward and Porter had a great time as they danced to sounds by DJ Supra.
