It’s Outing Season! The Island Iron Chef Cook Off

Friday, June 29th, 2012

What’s more festive than a Boston Island Cook Off!?  Last week, we brought just under 200 guests out to Georges Island for their corporate summer outing; they were divided into teams and tasked with creating their own Mexican recipes – salsa, guacamole and margaritas!  Judges ranked teams based on taste, teamwork and creativity and one team went home winners.  Following the heated team-building activity, guests enjoyed a casual summer barbecue and lawn games before boarding their ferry back to the mainland.  The ultimate summer fiesta!

With the turn of the season and a new baby in our Corinthian Events family, we have so much to celebrate!  Summer Smith was born to Amy and her husband, Dan, last Friday, June 15th at 7 pounds 13 ounces.  Don’t you just want to squish her little cheeks!?  Too cute.

Summer in the City at Boston’s ICA

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

The weather gods were not in our favor in early June – the rainy, cold weather seemed endless, but the party must always go on!  A “Summer in the City” themed corporate reception designed especially for the outdoor plaza space at the Institute of Contemporary Art was swiftly relocated to the museum’s lobby. Though the view might have shifted from bustling Boston Harbor to the up-and-coming Waterfront/Fort Point Channel neighborhood, guests were not deterred.

Upon entering the ICA, guests were greeted by two living birch tree statues complete with wind chimes – always a hit, especially with our out-of-town guests.  Two “men of many hats” were also on hand to entertain guests and help break the ice with their illusions and tricks.  And caricature artists put pen to paper representing each guests’ individual interests and exaggerating their physical appearances (all in good fun, of course!).

A combination of elegant rentals and custom floral accents along with some of the ICA’s in-house furniture and the awesome existing exhibition helped transform the space; guests were none the wiser to the last minute venue change and mingled the night away.

And no experience is complete at the ICA without divine delights catered by Wolfgang Puck.  (We couldn’t resist the miniature bottles of Tabasco sauce rounding out the raw bar!)

Capping off the evening, the living tree performers were granted an enthusiastic ovation upon their exit – such a treat!
