Thursday the 30th of October
Working hard in the event industry has some great perks ~ and this was one of the best. We were recently invited to the 70thBirthday Celebration at the stylish landmark bowling center in Greenwich Village, Bowlmor Lanes ~ with special guest Michael Phelps! Yes, Michael Phelps, the record holder for the most gold medals won at a single Olympics.
As we arrived, we were instantly checked off the ‘list’, given wristbands, and finagled our way through press and into the building where we were greeted with a glass of wine ~ which Candice quickly traded in for a yummy Mango Cosmopolitan. We rode up the elevator about 4 floors and entered a very chic atmosphere full of neon bowling, stylish cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres. We met up with our friend Tricia and I threw on oh-so-fabulous bowling shoes to attempt some bowling ~ not such an easy task in our business casual attire. About two games in, the record holder we love Michael Phelps, arrived and joined in on the bowling fun – well at least he sat in the lanes, we did not actually see bowling. Also in attendance was Benji Madden, showing off his DJ skills, providing us with some great background music.
We had a wonderful evening and would recommend Bowlmor Lanes for your next bachelor/bachelorette party, birthday or customer appreciation event. There are lots of options for bowling, dancing and holding a private catered event. We know that we are definitely going back!
