Couldn’t get shots of everything as we got very busy, very quickly.  The flow of arrivals was only slowed by the limit of 6 people in the elevator at a time.  Everyone left the screening at the same time and walked to the apartment en masse!  It was a smashing success!

Eat Well….Be Well!

    Chef Jim and his team do it again. The guests couldn’t say enough about how they were enjoying the great food and presentation . The client hasn’t stopped talking about the evening and what a wonderful time everyone had.
