For starters, it lasted two days and we were all treated to a night at the Marriott Rivercenter in between. This made for a fun staycation where we were able to check in early, get ready, and enjoy ourselves for a moment before attending the first party. The main event was a black tie ball on the Covington Landing, complete with three different bars, an eight-piece band brought in from D.C., and a countless stream of gourmet appetizers. I unfortunately didn’t have my big camera on me that night but I can assure you it was as glamorous as you can image.
The following morning we were all treated to breakfast in the hotel’s rotunda, while an acoustic singer played a ukulele and personalized scratch off cards that offered countless prizes to be redeemed at the second event were passed around table by table. There was literally not one thing that these two didn’t think of.
The final party was back at the landing for a front row view of the WEBN fireworks. Here we were treated to Cincinnati Circus performers, magicians, Eli’s Barbecue, Dojo Gelato, and the fulfillment of the morning’s prizes. Some who won one prize at the breakfast were able to sit in a roped off VIP section for the fireworks, the spot that offered the best, most unobstructed view. Another group of winners were treated to a bottle of Dom Perignon to toast with six of their chosen friends. You best believe I found a way to be tapped in as one of someone’s six. Just trying to live the high life.
In the end, this really was the party of all parties. Every last detail was incredibly considerate and insanely fun. I was lucky to be included and like everyone else, am hopeful that they’ll come out of party retirement in the future for another unbelievable time.
This is my only image from the black tie night, which is such a bummer because you know how much I love a reason to get super dressed up and give my favorite dream dress another night out on the town.
Hope you all went out with a bang too!
