Stairs
Stairs
These were the stairs leading up to the VIP lounge. The stairs (and much of the club) were lined with tea candles, which had a pretty cool effect. You can barely see it, but there's also one of the many posters at the top of the stairs.

Here's a few early-night setup shots of the club before folks started to arrive.
Themed Cocktails
Themed Cocktails
Han Vodka and Vitaminwater made a great mix with our themed cocktails. "The Accessory" was Han Vodka with Focus Kiwi-Strawberry Vitaminwater and a cherry. My husband's drink, "The Pure Ducky Goodness", was Energy Vitaminwater with Han Vodka and a lemon wedge. Both were yummy! Thanks to our sponsors.

Carl is the glue that holds "How I Met Your Mother" together. Fun fact: The bartender on the show is named after him (Carl) as is the bar (MacLarens).
