It was a night fit for a Hollywood premiere. A few weeks ago we were invited for a glimpse of the renovation of the ballroom at the Skokie Banquet and Conference Center. We got a chance to try the food now we’d get to experience the ambiance. Guests were taken on a magic carpet ride as a hostess greeted them, handing each one a glass of champagne from the dress she wore. Magnificent! Hues of fuschia and purple adorned the ballroom. The room boasts a 13 ft 6 inch ceiling and is the largest ballroom on the north coast. They really know how to throw a party.
Food and drinks were well stocked. There were several bars each had a themed drinks made with different types of liquor. Hollywood movies played on a screen and a popcorn and candy bar added to it. Lite bites with an international theme were passed out and there was a dessert bar filled with fruit and sweet treats. It was magical evening enjoyed by all.
