Vivo Lake Creek Kicks Off 2012 with New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball & New Brunch Service - Austin, Texas

Vivo Lake Creek Kicks Off 2012 with New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball & New Brunch Service:
New Year’s Eve Festivities to Include DJ, Dancing, Midnight Toast and Photo Booth

Vivo Lake Creek is encouraging Austinites to have a ball this New Year’s Eve. Northwest Austin’s favorite locale for elevated Tex-Mex fare, Vivo Lake Creek will host a New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball, complete with live music, dancing, plenty of bubbly and a special menu devised by celebrated Chef Paul Petersen.
Vivo’s Masquerade Ball runs from 10 p.m. New Year’s Eve through 2 a.m., Jan. 1, and will include a Champagne toast at midnight, designated dance floor space, live music from a local DJ beginning at 9 p.m., bottle service from Vivo’s elite serving staff and a special photo booth where guests can commemorate their holiday celebration. General admission to Vivo’s New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball is $50 per person, and reserved seating is $100 per person. Guests who make dinner reservations at Vivo Lake Creek for 8 or 8:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve may keep their table for the Masquerade Ball for only $50 per person.
Leading up to New Year’s Eve, Chef Petersen will delight Vivo diners with some new seasonal menu specials and holiday cocktails during the month of December. And come New Year’s Eve, guests can choose dinner dishes from the regular Vivo menu or from Chef Petersen’s specially prepared five-course menu featuring seasonal, New Year’s Eve-inspired cuisine such as caviar and lobster scrambled eggs atop fresh asparagus.
Chef Petersen has also been busy developing Vivo Lake Creek’s new Sunday brunch menu, which features many beloved Austin brunch favorites like Biscuits and Gravy, Huevos Rancheros, Shrimp Cocktail, Pablo’s Migas and Steak and Eggs. Chef Petersen’s Chicken and Waffles (a Texas-shaped waffle with cinnamon-spiced cream cheese, deep-fried fajita chicken and maple syrup), the El Sapo dish (cinnamon-spiced French toast with a poached egg in the middle, served with garlic breakfast potatoes) and the Steak Ranchero (a pan-seared rib eye with traditional ranchero sauce served with black beans and garlic breakfast potatoes) are certain to become new brunch favorites. A variety of soups, salads and fruit plates round out the brunch menu, and are included alongside a medley of alluring brunch cocktails, domestic and imported beers, and coffee beverages.       
Vivo Lake Creek is located in the Lake Creek Village Shopping Center in Northwest Austin and features a variety of San Antonio-style Tex-Mex cuisine, signature cocktails and a growing wine list, all served in a plush, inviting and sensual lounge environment. The restaurant will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Holiday hours are Mondays from 5 to 9 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight; and Sunday for brunch service from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and for dinner service from 3 to 9 p.m. Happy hour is Monday and Tuesday from 5 p.m. to close and Wednesday through Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. For more information about Vivo Lake Creek and the new brunch menu, or to make reservations for the New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball or New Year’s Eve dinner, call (512) 331-4660, or visit
