ROCK OF HORROR was one of the decor themes for the evening's overall "Reality Bites" event. This was done in the Grand Ballroom, by the Dining Services Department. They came in second in the decorating contest.
"Bride-zilla" was the theme chosen by the Sales and Catering Team (apropos of what they do?) for their decor in the Essex Room. Many of the guests who were having their photos taken in this room loved posing with this tableau.
The Grand Prize winner for the room decorating contest was "Hell's Kitchen", done very appropriately by the Kitchen Department
"Survivor" created by the Banquet Department was displayed in Nathaniel's. I know sometimes the Banquet staff members feel a little like they have been through a 'survivor-like' challenge doing back-to-back events on busy weekends, but they never look THIS BAD!!!

"Frank-n-Stein" were the winners of First Place in the Group Division for our Costume Contest.
Taking Second Place for the Group Division, The Devil and his Seven Deadly Sins (l to r: SLOTH, GLUTTONY, PRIDE (with an obvious broken nose from a fall), green with ENVY, the DEVIL, LUST, WRATH, AND GREED). I gave the cash to GREED when they came up to get their award, because no one else seemed interested in picking up their award. Interesting?!!
The Tea Party won third place. Included in their group were Earl Grey, Lipton, Orange Pekoe, Sleepy Time, and Iced Tea. Their costumes were all giant tea bags, and the 'party' was made evident by their party hats and favors.
The Jackal won second place in the Individual Category. I can only say I'm glad I didn't meet up with this character on a dark street someplace. Yikes!
Cash for Cluckers was the Third Place Winner in the Individual Category. Topical and timely, and a great use of an otherwise standard chicken costume.
