Lexington, KY

Last week, Aaron and I traveled to Kentucky for an event we worked with Thomas Catering. All I can say that it was an interesting experience.....

We were serving an event for a horse endurance race, and the guests had paid $600 to be there! I think most really tried to guest their money's worth--guests were taking off their shoes and putting their bare feet on the coffee table (um. eew.), they were smoking in the 2 story tent (seriously, these thing do exist) even after being repeatedly told not to, they were jacking full bottles of Don Perrion water, drinking a few sips, and then leaving it for the staff to pick up, and leaving a disgusting mess of ashes everywhere.

Aaron and I decided to entertain ourselves during the middle of the day after someone accidentally left their sunglasses at the bar:

Adding insult to injury, there was a torrential downpour that day, and the bottom level of the tent flooded, so we moved the furniture from the first floor to the second. And then of course the rain stopped 15 minutes later, so we cleaned up the water and moved the tables back downstairs AGAIN : ) Lastly, the kitchen was in an outside tent with a temporary floor and well, here's the kitchen at the end of the day.

And here was the damage to my shoes.....

Overall, the day was long, but it was a beautiful event. Here's a look at the beginning of the day (4am!)
