OC Good Life Holiday Party!

Come join us for a dressy holiday event at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach to celebrate the season!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach has graciously given us their Grand Ballroom for this year's OC Good Life Holiday Party on Friday November 30, 2012 which is a week after Thanksgiving.

**NOTE**  As of 11/27, we have hit our RSVP limit of 705 members for this event. There now is a waiting list for those who are interested in attending and typically some space will open up prior to the event and we hope that you can join us.

We currently have our party slated from 7:00 PM through Midnight but feel free to show up before then, or stay later!  The resort has given our members a special room rate of $159 for those who might want to stay over night.

This is a Free event other than the standard 2 drink/item minimum per person, so please order NON ALCOHOLIC or alcoholic drinks as you wish.  There will be a nice appetizer buffet for only $10 for those who are hungry plus the beverages will be specially priced at $3 for non-alcoholic drinks, beer/wine $5 and mixed drinks/call liquor/premium wine $7.

Parking at this hotel/resort is only set up for Valet Service so they have also agreed to give the group a special discounted rate of only $5 per car which is a great rate for parking at the beach in Huntington.

DJ will be our member Alan (DJ javaJAP), and there will be dancing!

DRESS CODE:  Ladies, please dress in red, white, or black (or any combination).  Men, dress in your semi-formal best in black or white.  This is a dress up event, so dress to impress!

Here is the link for OC Good Life members to book a room at the resort:

    Overall - a good party. Could have provided more seats - hard to beo on high shoes all night. Music wasn't all that.

    Overall a fun night. However I do hope someone has a stearn conversation with the venue about the so-called "Buffet" line. The fee was for one pass thru of the "Buffet" line only, of which... of the 5 or so Trays they apparently started with, only 2 were marginally containing any food items when we arrived (early I might add) and we were told they would not be refilling the already depleted ones. Nowhere did it say in writing that the fee was for just one pass thru. So many, not knowing this, only put a socially acceptable number of items on their plates, thinking they could come back later since they paid their fee and it was a "Buffet". The DJ was doing an admirable job of hitting across multiple genres. I see a previous poster talking about where's the classic rock. Apparently he wasn't there when he ran thru AC/DC, Rolling Stones, and several others in that genre.

      By 8:30 pm there was NO buffet at all!! For an event that started at 7 pm, 1.5 hours into it and it was all cleared away. Not a good situation!

      I agree......a buffet doesn't imply one pass. But also, the food was inedible....disappointin­g when that was the plan for dinner!!!

    Wow, what a great smooth event! And a record breaker for attendance for our group! Thank you to Alan, for taking requests, and being our DJ for the evening, and thank you to Mark, for his tireless fine tuning of the details of this event. But especially a HUGE thank you to all of you that attended with your smiles, and great attitude, lack of drama, and made this such a fun evening to be part of. I think we have a place that was not only popular but that was elegant and something we can be eager to return to.

    Great party Roberto! The ballroom was very nice. Thanks so much for setting this up! I liked the way the DJ eased us into dancing to techno music. I love it!

    The red flooded walls, the ceiling speckled with playful laser dots, and the SMOOTH enveloping powerful speakers, leave it up to an engineer like DJ Alan to create a cozy, festive, colorful setting, worthy of The Good Life!
    I got there by 10, and after meet and great, didn’t come off the dance floor till closing. Indeed, I just love the fresh more techno and Top 40 tunes, but understand it may not appeal to all of the R&R generation. In the end, the vote shows on the floor. And since dancing king and queen Jose and Sharleen kept on moving and that the dance floor stayed packed, the DJ did a good job!

    Loved the venue, great party! Thanks Roberto!

    Thank you for a great time! Venue was great, service excellent. Fun, amazing new friends. It'll be nice to have more music for people in their 40s and 50s and also music from 80s.

  • Ken

    The party, crowd and venue was great but the music spoiled it for me. I'm tired of techno DJs and many people said the same thing. When I approached to him change the music Alan refused. He finally did change it when enough people complained but only for a few songs. Upon leaving early along with a lot of people, most people were commenting on how bad the music was. Please help us find a good DJ who realizes this crowd is not in their 20's and 30's. Great music, music that fits the crowd, helps make a good evening wonderful. That's just my opinion.

    I had an idea...I hope it's OK to suggest. Anyone wanting to come on the waiting could go to Shades after 7pm...and when peeps leave perhaps they could go in. They would have a good chance because only 70% usually show up anyway. :)
