A 40th Birthday in Brooklyn, Jalopy Theater

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

At the beginning of December we were asked to help out with a pretty cool 40th Birthday Party at the Jalopy Theater in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Jon's wife, Cindy, invited 90 of his closest friends to come and celebrate Jon in a very personal way...his bands from high school and college reunited to preform for the fist time in years and Jon even joined them. There were other acts including a banjo performance and a poem reading,and it was a beautiful tribute to a man that obviously is very much loved and adored by his friends and family. 

Cindy asked us to create the signature drink station which we did using our oak barrel table and vintage vessels. It functioned as a Bourbon tasting station and Prosecco-making headquarters for the night. Cindy also asked us to do something creative with Jon's old band posters which were blown-up and hung in creative art displays on the brick walls and accented with string lights.  Rather than a traditional cake, doughnuts from Doughboy Bake Shop in Brooklyn hit the spot at the end of the night! I think I ended up eating three of them. {That is all I have to say about that.} We used a few of our smaller tables and serving materials to create the dessert station and all was accented by the always-appropriate-at-a-Brooklyn-party over-sized number balloons and the creepy statue provided by the Jalopy Theater. That's a party folks. And a fun one at that!

The Jalopy Theater has done a ton in the way of supporting Red Hook and helping it get back on its feet after Hurricane Sandy. If you are in the area, please support this wonderful theater/bar/restaurant that has done so much for its community. These businesses deserve the patronage. 

And thank you Joe for the pics!
