Planning an event has been known to be slightly stressful and somewhat overwhelming.  Details have to be decided early on in order to complete a bigger picture and sometimes it can be difficult to make those decisions without even understanding what they mean.  Typically, the menu is a huge contributor to the theme or type of event you're planning, but beyond that, the style in which it is served is actually the true contribution.  Sometimes the style of service you choose will help you come up with the perfect menu.  Likewise, if you already know the menu you plan to serve it will generally determine the style of how it is served.  All in all, we have summarized and highlighted the difference of those styles to give you an educated perspective on what it all means.

It's Just a Wolf Cookie...

Comic-Con International: San Diego

Our client's vision was to serve pop-culture inspired meals at San Diego's Comic-Con in a pop-up dinner paying homage to Game of Thrones, Orange Is the New Black and Marvel's Luke Cage.

Comic-Con attendees would receive "TV Dinners" inspired by the shows. The meals would feature dishes like Genghis Connie's chow mein from Luke Cage, the Jolly Rancher weapon that Piper used to frame fellow inmate Stella Carlin in Orange is the New Black, and Jerky of the Beast inspired by the wild boar that ultimately killed Game of Thrones character King Robert Baratheon.

The artist's renderings of these three plates is exactly what the client expected us to duplicate...EXACTLY!  TWTC's sales team was ready to go to contract, “c’mon, it’s just a wolf cookie and a candy shank”, they said. "It'll be fun", they said.

It sounded like fun, but it did have its challenges.
