A very busy week for me, lots of action and opportunity in the catering and special event world. I'm working with a couple new clients and continuing my never ending quest to find great new venues to hold events. I do like to think of myself as an expert on area venues and it's really challenging to try to match a client's vision for an event with the right venue. If you are an event planner and need help with venue selection, feel free to contact me and I can usually find a solution in my extensive database of museums, warehouses, lofts, mansions and other unique places to hold your gathering.
Last night I attended two events in Northern Liberties. The introduction of Tower Premier Concierge as the in house Concierge for tenants of the Piazza and other Tower Development tenants in Northern Liberties was held in their new storefront space on Liberties Walk. The owner Derek Bailey seems very knowledgeable and the breadth of services are extensive including catering and staffing. Across Second Street in the Piazza, the new restaurant King's Oak held a promotional event produced by Jessica Scott. Very well done party, food was yummy, nice live music, it is a great addition to the Piazza. This adds to the desirability of the Piazza as an event venue.
Today I was invited by Steve Wildemann and Donna Coghlan to attend their Alex's Lemonade Stand picnic and fundraiser at the headquarters of Steve's company, Advanced Staging. Very nice event for a great cause, this was a nice kick-off to the Fourth of July weekend and the numerous barbecues I will be attending. Steve and Donna are two of the best, most professional people in the business, if they weren't there is no way I would have drove to West Chester when I could have been golfing or writing this blog. Steve actually gave me a fun idea for the blog, a post rating the different barbecues from the weekend. I think I will do it.
I started writing this blog post in June and as I look down at the computer clock I see it's now July. Happy July to all. One of today's highlights will be the opening of Rosey's Barbecue in Ambler. A two minute walk from my front door. Welcome to Ambler Chad & Jessica, great to have you here, click for the website: http://www.roseysbbq.com/. Would it be fair to have my barbecue review for tomorrow on a restaurant's first day of business?
