Chocolate, Carnivals, Casinos – Oh, My.

Summer is heating up, and so are these three amazing event concepts:

Chocolate Tasting 101

Chocolate tasting 101 wine glassLet’s treat your guests to a classy…treat. Perfect for a loungy private event, networking night, conference break-out session, bridal shower, fundraiser — and the list goes on. Get the low-down on how to really taste and savor a series of chocolates from around the world while getting a mini-education on how chocolate is made, the beans’ origin, and how to detect the nuances of each chocolate. Can you taste the differences between Belgium, Swiss, Venezuelan and African chocolate? How about 65% Cocoa content and 91%? Tasting and scoring sheets let you remember what you liked and did not. Face it: chocolate is a very social thing, and you can’t miss with this idea. (Need more bliss? Chocolate Tasting 101 is also available with wine pairings.)

Carnival Games 

Knock down carnival gameAn old-fashioned but always fun concept, equally effective and enjoyable for young adults and older adults alike. Whether it’s for a school fundraiser, a teen’s birthday or bar mitzvah, or even a corporate mixer or team-building outing, smiles and laughter will ensue. Games can include bean-bag toss, mini-basketball, table-top mini-golf, darts and balloons, and more. Let your guests show their stuff by earning tickets and taking home prizes.You can even enhance the carnival with other interactive entertainment, such as tarot and palm readings, roving magicians, clowns, stilt walkers, hoop performers, cirque-style aerial artists, fire eaters, cool jugglers, etc. The carnival doesn’t have to come around just once a year anymore.

Casino Parties

Casino Night with DJ HostWe’re not exactly talking traditional casinos here: at your casino, everybody leaves with his or her shirt. This concept is perfect for charitable fundraisers and corporate crowds. Your music stylist and casino host (or jazz group) plays cool, swinging music, giving the room a really upbeat Vegas-vibe. Your casino host, or event organizer, hands each guest an envelope containing thousands of dollars in “casino cash” with your logo on it. The host announces the night’s agenda and keeps players periodically informed with important mentions. The casino room is fitted with a mix of gaming tables (i.e. Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Poker) and friendly dealers ready to give tips to the casino novice (and keep up with the seaoned shark). Guests will trade as much or as little “cash” as they wish for chips. The casino floor will stay open for a couple of hours, after which the cash-out table will open. There, players will “cash-in” for raffle tickets, and hopefully, win prizes provided generously by your charity’s donors or your company, respectively. For those who choose not to play or want to take breaks, it is recommended that other entertainment options exist, like a lounge area with roaming dessert tables, tarot readings, roving magicians, or even sports arcade games. (Again, these casinos are for entertainment purposes only: no actual money is being wagered.)


At some point in your life, professionally or privately, you will need entertainment for an event. From a simple DJ, to everything eye-catching, engaging, and creative: be sure to keep us in mind, to blow your mind. No event, venue, client, or concept is out of the question.

The concept we believe in: your event unique. (tm)
