NOTE.This event was for the over 35 and mature crowd mostly of business people who move and shake in the St Louis area. The food was on point and the entertainment with the sax player and singers were an added touch (We left before DjNune got on the mp3s and playing his horns , but we are sure he did his thing). There also were some interesting fashion choices going on at this event (as you can see from the pics above) that were conversation pieces. And big ups to Leata sportin the new blonde do!

And where was the Dancing Santa this year?LOL
