Applied Molecular Evolution

Thank you sooooo much for helping us throw the best holiday party ever for AME!! (I'm not exaggerating, either...!!)...You and your staff were *absolutely* fabulous! Everyone is raving about how much fun they had...

Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione

(The Sales Manager) assisted me with local transportation, signage, recommendations of local bands, and all of the details at the restaurant. I have hosted several corporate events in locations all over the country and I have yet to have a function with a staff as helpful and interactive as your staff at the Hard Rock Cafe. Their positive and fun attitude set the tone of our event. They should be commended.

DIME

Because of you, my breakfast event was a success! The attendees were a little annoyed that they had to be shipped to an offsite location, but once they got to the venue, saw the food and the set up, that feeling diminished. We actually got several comments how well we pulled it off! I can't thank you enough for your professionalism, creativity and ability to think outside the box!
