VIP Party at the New Biscuit!
Tonight was the VIP Party, and it went off without a hitch! We had a great turn out! Of course my favorite times of the night were the times that I got to talk to Jessica Dauler, who I found out reads my Blog! (Hi Jessica!) This was my second time to meet Jessica and I was just as impressed with her tonight as I was when I met her last week at the radio station. What a class act, and genuinely nice lady. And I'm not just saying that because I know that she's reading this!
Other notables at the party were Karen Greer and Ted Hall, anchors from WXIA, 11Alive. They stayed for a good while, and seemed to enjoy the party. I also got to meet Food Reporter Adam Murphy for the first time. He was nothing like I expected! I've heard him on the radio for years now, and I always pictured him as a "Clark Howard type". I couldn't have been more wrong. He's a young, good looking guy.
We had a tent set up outside in the parking lot, and Delia had me park my car (the Biscuit Mobile) in front of the tent. We realized that no one was standing under the tent and thought that music might bring them out. So... I cranked up my radio (alternating between the only CD I had with me- 80's music... and Q100, of course!). Delia got the idea that she wanted to have our photo taken in my car. We found the photographer and went out to the car. Before I knew it, my car was filled with most of the current Biscuit owners (Delia Champion, Jeff Dauler, John Slocum), two of our PR associates (Elizabeth and Kempten, from Green Apple), and a few other people. Most of them were piled into the backseat of my convertible, and I was in the driver's seat- of course! I can't wait to see these pictures! They should be pretty cool! I'll post them here as soon as I get them from the photographer.
Overall, it was a fun night, and I think I heard that we had over 400 people in attendance.
