Company Picnic in Central Park – 2015

It’s hard to believe this was our 4th year to work with Colonial Consulting on their annual summer picnic in Central Park and we couldn’t have asked for better weather!

Because of the easy access from 5th Avenue, we decided to have it in the same location as last year, the Billy Johnson Playground between E. 66th and 67th Streets.

Everyone loved Dinosaur BBQ the year before so we decided to use them again. The menu consisted beef sliders, BBQ chicken, chicken wings, Memphis style pork, St. Louis cut ribs, Hoffman’s hot dogs, chopped salad, creole potato salad, mac & cheese, honey hush cornbread and assorted cookies (chocolate chunk, oatmeal, peanut butter) and mini-pies (key lime, cheesecake and chocolate icebox) with fresh whipped cream.

For entertainment we booked the same vendors as last year; face painting by Kiki’s Faces & Balloons, caricatures by Steve Nyman and activities led by Ryan from Groovinthusiasts. We also had a cardboard vineyard that the kids really enjoyed coloring on!
