While planning events is my favorite part of my job, I am so relieved to have my final (as far as I know) event of the year wrapped. Planning this party while planning (and traveling to) Mexico was a huge undertaking, but all turned out well. We were at capacity about 10 minutes after doors opened and I spent a good hour and half cherry picking the VIP line to get in my co-workers, big clients, and friends. Some of the stories people will tell you to try to get inside, it's crazy!
After dinner at Katsuya where I saw an entire hockey team and McSteamy Eric Dane sat at the table next to me, I dashed back to the club to make sure everything was good to go. The theme was ancient Rome and we totally blew it out. We had about 15 girls dressed like Britney Spears when she performed with Madonna at the VMAs who handed in candy and posed in a large photobooth with guests, security guards dressed as monks, a pope who performed magic tricks, a gelato stand outside...all kinds of craziness. The whole night is kind of a blur of Red Bull, stress, and excitement, but some highlights included dancing with Zach Levi, chatting with McLovin' and Napoleon Dynamite, toasting drinks with Turtle from Entourage, and having Cash Warren show me baby pictures on his phone of daughter Honor. Best of all, I had a really great time with my co-workers. We all ended up at the same burger joint in Hollywood at 3 am, playing the juke box and dancing around.
BTW, I kept trying to talk to James Marsden, but got swept away by something to deal with or somebody to talk to every time. He is so adorbs though! And Amy Smart, remember her? She and Wilmer Valdarama in the room made me feel like it was 2005.
