nice turnout

A fine time was had by attendees at the ADCNJ’s member’s party held at Bar Cara in Bloomfield, NJ. Approximately 50 members showed up for this fun time and if the feedback I received is true, they all had a great time.

The event was put together and promoted by Laraine Blauvelt and her team at Smith Design who produced this wonderful event. Attendees were feted with Italian delicacies created by Bar Cara’s chefs and the big hit of the night seemed to be the pizza.

ADCNJ member Andrea Mistretta donated some of her Internationally recognized Mardi Gras posters as door prizes.

I got a chance to speak with some of the attendees and newer members and everybody seemed excited to be at this event. Past Presidents, Robert Ryan, James Smith and Jenna Smith joined the newer members in celebrating the ADCNJ.

After the event, a few of us snuck out and went to Momoya to dine on the amazing sushi sculptures of Chef Louis at Momoya, also on Broad in Bloomfield.
