"Erin made setting up the event super easy and was helpful in getting me the info. and details that I needed. Molly's follow-up was super helpful and the event turned out perfectly! My clients and I had a great time and would definitely consider this for future entertainment events. "
"The pizza tossing should be more interactive. The chef should be more involved and encourage the guests to toss pizza etc. Liven it up and make it more fun! Also, I would suggest no chairs at the tables during the pizza making portion of the event and different appetizers during the reception."
