A day in the Life…

From time to time we get invitations to opening and events in the area to check out new event spaces. Generally these events have fun cocktails, delicious food and we get to meet and network with all kinds of people in the same line of work as us. This time we were invited to an event space showcase at Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood.      

Madame Tussaud’s has room to hold events in both in their gallery of wax celebrities and on their glamorous starlit rooftop. We were treated to some really fun cocktails and delicious appetizers from Premiere Events, who also happen to do the food and beverage for our First Fridays events here at the Natural History Museum.      

Guests were kept busy throughout the night. Aside from mingling on the rooftop, there were casino tables set up for folks to try their luck. Music played throughout the evening and Out of the Box events had developed a scavenger hunt specifically tailored to Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood.

The top floor of the wax museum stayed open and we got to take a look at the wax likenesses of celebs such as Will Smith, George Clooney, Beyoncé, Jennifer Aniston and Zac Efron. I will admit we got a bit silly with the camera…       

A particularly fun part of the evening was getting to watch all the excitement at Grauman’s Chinese Theater, located right next to Madame Tussaud’s. Hollywood Boulevard was shut down for the red carpet premiere of the new A-Team movie. From the rooftop we had a great view and watched the non-wax celebrities arrive decked out in their finest!       

A huge thank you to Madame Tussaud’s for hosting this wonderful evening. And thank you to all of the vendors who helped make sure everyone was fed and entertained throughout the evening:
