December 9th 2011 – Schlesinger Associates Holiday Party – Firehouse Pub, Rahway, NJ
Wow! What a night. This is without a doubt my favorite Holiday event of the year, and this is only my second straight year with this party. Schlesinger has a completely different take on the typical Holiday Party, choosing a theme and running with it to create something very elaborate. I was wondering how they could top last year’s Wizard of Oz theme (which saw a nearly complete reenactment of the movie with all the characters in costume), and they certainly did with a “Super Friends” theme. A giant banner hung over the room that read, “Schlesinger Hall of Justice!”, and every table was adorned with every possible piece of superhero memorabilia the party planners could locate. Superman and Batman-branded candies that I didn’t even know still existed!
They followed up with another brilliant skit, several employees participating in costume (with scripts and dialogue and music for me to coordinate as well!), and had the place rolling with laughter. They certainly know how to create a great vibe for a party, because after dinner and the skit ended, they got up on the dance floor and did not come off for 3 straight hours. It’s treat for any DJ to be a part of this event, and I’m already looking forward to next year!
