Go West!

We did go west . . . almost all the way to Malibu.  Set in the heart of the historic Paramount movie ranch, we rolled up our sleeves and created a western experience for the employees and guests of a westside advertising agency.

To bring the wild west alive at Paramount, Lewis Events brought mouth watering BBQ cuisine, an exciting and bustling saloon casino, trick roping, cattle drive pony rides, foot stomping entertainment, strike it rich gold panning, atmosphere characters, virtual calf roping, unique western theme decor and a real live thundering stagecoach. 

The original Paramount studios rach provided the perfect setting for a great old west special event. Both indoor and outdoor areas were used for the variety of event activities, dining, entertainment and socializing.  This amazing location has been used for an almost endless list of movies and productions including Dr. Quinn Medicine woman and most recently Carnivale.

And yes, we did ride the stage into the sunset.

Lunar New Year with USC

Happy Lunar New Year!  Year number five for Lewis Events assisting USC Pacific Asia Museum with their Lunar New Year celebration.  A full day of cultural stage performances, activities and museum experiences for guests.  This year the event was held on the beautiful campus of Fuller Theological Seminary, as the Pacific Asia Museum is carrying out renovations at the museum complex.

Emily made some new friends at the celebration.

Jackpot!

For some reason, casinos were the rage this fall.  Three different, important clients all felt “lucky” and went the way of Monte Carlo and Las Vegas.  So we brought out the feathers, the shimmer and the bright lights for the extravaganzas.costco-casino-screen-rs-10-16

Route 66

Car Grafitti

Things got a little “good crazy” at a Route 66 party we put together.  We started at Santa Monica with a little “car graffiti”, then Arizona, the heartland and as the evening progressed, moved east until we ended in the windy city, Chicago.  The DJ spun music from Ronnies garage, and food was served at a vintage roadside diner.  A great journey!Ronnies Garage DJ

Once Upon a Time It Was 2015 and Then It Wasn’t!

2015 went by so fast, we didn’t even have a chance to keep up on all of our party and event posts along with their cheesy commentary.  So rather than trying to catch up the traditional way, we decided to just post a few pictures from the past little while for your viewing pleasure.
