The Gala - It was Chamber-tastic!

So, I sat down next a good friend of mine from the Chamber last night, and sighed, "You know, there's nothing like the end of an event that's gone well - It tastes like freedom." And it's true, there's just something about pulling all these separate threads together, all aimed towards a specific goal and time and place, and just watching it all unfold. And I had fun, too!

You might not know this, but the North Hollywood Arts District is the largest one west of New York City. If you watch that show on MTV about the Millenium Dance Theater? That's in NoHo. That and about 22 theaters, umpteen music and acting acadamies, etc. I invited a magician, a theater troupe, and a kid's Improv group to perform, and they were a big hit. We had a free wine tasting from Vendome, a free martini bar courtesy of Krol Vodka, and really yummy bread from La Brea Bread Bakery. Everything went over so well, I HAD to give them all a shout out, including Gary Justice, the DJ.

It's so great to work with people who love what they do. That's actually one of the things I would recommend with any vendor that you talk to - see if you can find not only the commitment, but the love. Someone who loves their job will not only be willing to accomodate you, but doing a great job will be important to them. So, don't forget to ask.
