CELEBRATION OF A FABULOUS YEAR
The Women of Forward Times celebrated the end of a fabulous year by throwing a year end holiday bash at the digs of Fabulous Around Houston.
The party was dedicated to the employees and their families, and people who have faithfully supported the paper and all it’s endeavors throughout the year, be it through Facebook comments, by subscribing to the paper, attending our various events, contributing time, money, physical effort or any other service that contributed to our phenomenal year.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted with cold offerings of jumbo shrimp and crab meat all served with tarter and cocktail sauces, deviled egg trays, assorted cheese trays, a humus dip and cracker display, all eaten on Christmas-themed china.
The guests were privy to an open bar serving whatever they desired, all served by a professional bartender; and a hot buffet line that offered chicken fettucine, speciality spaghetti, hot n’ spicy meatballs and hot garlic bread, all served by professional waitstaff. and to top it off, a beautiful sheet cake creation to soothe every sweet tooth in the house. Big shout out goes to Alice’s Unlimited Bakery, Spec’s Catering, Theresia Ross, and Eclipse Event Staff.
The party popped all night as Brandon Demerson, aka “DJ Debonair,” kept the house on fire with old skool, new skool, rap, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s hottest hits. The best DJ this side of the border.
