On a brighter note..
When we first signed our contract, we were told that we were not going to be able to have a taste testing.. I was kind of iffy about this but I saw that the reviews for our venue were great so it made me feel a little better.. some time after that I kept asign our banq manager if we could have a taste testing.. he said no every time!!!!
finally... today.. this morning I called to speak to the general manager and asked him if we can have a taste testing and he said 'SURE!" like it was something that they do all the time!!! i told him that i was told they dont do taste testing and he said usually they dont offer it but if you ask they will let you do it.. i wanted to complain that i did ask many times but i didnt want the drama and was so excited!!
im waiting to hear back from the coordinator (i guess for taste testing) about when we can set up a date for that :-)
Persistence goes a long way ladies...
