Safety at Your Party

Ever think that you wouldn’t know what to do if there was an emergency at your event? I didn’t either until I attended the BizBash Expo and Awards in Downtown LA. Things to consider when planning an event and walking the site:
- have a first aid kit on hand
- know where the emergency exits and extinguishers are
- never block a door or doorway
- train your employees in first aid and CPR
- abide by fire codes
- inquire into the certifications of the venue staff
- learn the security and evacuation plan of the venue
- communicate emergency protocol clearly with all vendors
- create a security plan for all events
You never know when an emergency will happen, whether it is a natural disaster (earthquake) or an unforeseen emergency (a heart attack). Either way, be prepared for the unexpected.

New Finding...Hidden in LA

The Foundry on Melrose is a hidden gem for event coordinators. The restaurant's comfortable contemporary interior and the warm modern outdoors patio is dream space for your next event. The venue's hand-crafted, art-deco feel has been inspired by the craftsmanship of the Machine Age and the industrial innovation of Streamline Modernism. Sconces fabricated from vintage heat registers, wood and steel accents, antique light fixtures and colorful abstract at from the times provide a warm and inviting background. Your dining experience could be summed up by the phase "Modern American." While tasting menus will also be available, including a vegetarian option, the ala carte menu will feature luxurious items with humble ingredients creating an upscale, causally elegant feel; "fine dining for the everyday man."
