Blasting Abba, Abbracci Embraces 20 Years

La dolce Nino... Mama Mia!

Four giant sparkler candles set an atlas-sized cake ablaze, as Abbracci's private party room came alive last night with the flamboyant beats of Abba's Dancing Queen.  Nino Pernetti, beaming with pride, took his position center stage and basked in the warm glow of his restaurant's 20th anniversary celebration.

"'70s music brings back my youth," Nino reminisced, looking about as youthful as the day he opened the doors, if not more dapper.  "It is the most intense, inspirational, sentimental and heart-breaking music ever made.  It is able to transport you to that happy moment."

And a happy moment it was, with 50+ supporters, including Coral Gables Mayor Don Slesnick, to share in the fanfare only an Italian -- and only Nino -- could bring to a celebration.
