    I hope everyone enjoyed themselves and the food my catering company Peaches Patties catered. If you are still craving for some Jamaican food that you had on Saturday night please come out to the Soulful Cheers Happy Holiday Hour meetup this Friday December 20th from 5:00pm to 10:00pm. It's going to be a good time!

    Hi, I'm new to the area and won't know a soul at this event. Is there a meeting point or time where folks are planning to meet?

    December 14, 2013

    • Milicent

      Hi Karen, I'm anxious that there's not a meeting place yet as well. As a backup, I'm happy to meet you at the Peets across the street at 8pm. My name is Milicent and I'll be wearing a black jacket.

    How formal is this event exactly, i dont want to be over or under dressed. Thanks

    December 14, 2013

    • Nell

      It says black tie optional and gives a list of what is acceptable. It seems pretty formal. Calls for a floor length gown, fancy cocktail dress, or fancy little black dress.
