I can’t believe I haven’t shared about the big BBQ last week…Saturday, August 4th here in NYC. It was HOT…like 94 degrees! Yet we had a crowd of about 140 people…friends and family came from all over the country.
We were having soooo much fun and didn’t take many pictures.
The menu consisted of Filet Mignon skewers in both BBQ sauce and Teriyaki, jumbo shrimp cocktail, Italian Sweet and Hot Sausages, Sweet Roasted Peppers, tons of Sirloin Cheeseburgers and Hot Dogs.
The desserts were a hit…tons of cakes from our favorite Italian Bakery in Brooklyn, Villabate Pasticceria & Bakery http://www.villabate.net/pages/6/index.htm , which included Champagne Cake, Cheesecake w/ fresh strawberries, Strawberry Shortcake and several other of their yummy creations.
Lady M™ aka Myrinda sweetgirlboutique send me Shari’s Berries and Jessica littlelamslane brought a huge tray of her infamous Boutique Toffee™ (and a little private stash for me). I also made a giant candy cart with enough sugar to send the kids into a coma…LOL! Also had two hours of cotton candy from the big old fashion cotton candy machine! Almost forgot to mention, everyone loved the delicious homemade Italian Ices from LaRocca’s…they are always a hit!
We had a great magician and card shark, the giant Moon Bounce and the Pirate Ship ride (yes, I went on both…thankfully there are no pictures of me acting like a fool!). There were several babysitters for the little ones so the parents could eat, drink and be merry!
