CARIBBEAN NIGHT FUN

CARIBBEAN NIGHT AT EDGEWOOD COUNTRY CLUB

It was a glorious evening at the Edgewood Country Club in River Vale, New Jersey. The food included traditional Island fare from all parts of the Caribbean Sea, representing a variety of delicious flavors. Empanadas, mofongo, jerk chicken, tender pork, and so much more.

The setting was poolside and everyone wore colorful attire consistent with the theme of the event. Our personal favorite was the music, which was provided by us, Entertainment Consultants. Our steel drum duo, DNA, created the ambiance of the islands with their Reggae beats and Athenia’s beautiful voice.

We can safely say that a great time was had by all.

Bring the Caribbean to your next party!
