Another great fall at the beach. As usual, Mango's hosted a number of receptions and rehearsal dinners. I am usually caught up in keeping everyone happy and forget to snap any pics even though I always have my camera in my pocket. Over the course of two weeks, we had 3 rehearsal dinners and a reception for 200 people. Needless to say, I was bound to remember to grab my camera at least once.

These pictures are from the Lord wedding (yes that is really the last name), owners of Lord's Landscaping in Millville This was the first wedding at Mango's that actually closed the entire restaurant because they had such a huge guest list. Mango's staff members Jon, Chelsea, Zach, Val, and Laric did an unbelievable job. White table cloths, martinis, DJ's, and black tie attire transformed Mango's usually tropic atmosphere. Dinner changed from Coco Shrimp to Filet Mignon served with Chilean Sea Bass. Ketchup salt and pepper centerpieces were tossed for a beautiful flower arrangement. Reggae music was ditched for the electric slide and Al Green. I didn't even recognize the restaurant, but we still managed to throw one heck of a party as the newly named couple, Mike and Amy Lord, led a dancing frenzy late into the Mango Night. The night was topped with one of the nicest, most genuine thank you cards I have ever received. A great party for some great people. Looking forward to next wedding season because 2009 was a blast.

I think this is pretty obvious but still a good reminder.

Friendly Contest

During a pre shift moment of boredom the female staff decided to hold a Saltine Cracker Eating Contest. Inspired by a rerun of the Nathan's Hotdog Competition, the girls set out to see who could eat the most Saltine Crackers in one minute. I'm not sure who won, but they again proved the point that there is never a dull moment around here. Pictured in second photo from left to right: Barb, Amy, Chelsea, Tee and Jackie.
