Venue: 501 Union, Gowanus Neighborhood, in Brooklyn
You never know the power of social media referrals. Brooklyn design and internet lady swissmiss (aka Tina Roth Eisenberg) tweeted that she needed a caterer. My dear friend Sam answered right back that she knew someone. I really got an email, I really did. I was jumping up and down!
When we decided to meet, it was literally the next office building away from mine in Dumbo. We talked about the party. Tina was throwing herself a prom in 1992 because she’d never been and that was the year she would have gone. I threw out my entire proposal and started from scratch. The 90’s are my JAM. I hit Facebook with “90’s snacks, go!” status and my friends delivered….Gushers, Squeez-its, Hot Pockets, even Dunk-a-roos!
The menu had to be practical and fun. I wanted it to be somewhat adult, too, since there was going to be a bar.
Whenever anyone asked me about the pulled pork, my answer was “What? It’s timeless!”
The event itself was unlike any prom I had been to. Amazing DJ, outrageous dresses and hair; it was a dream! All of the event staff wore shirts with Kelly Kapowski on it. I added some extra 90's sweetness with jars of Push Pops and Ring Pops for everyone to take home.
I love theme parties, so if you're throwing one and you need custom snacks-- holler at me!
