Thursday night was an incredible night. Although not all people made it from my list, we still had an amazing time. The LAU
event was very well organized. It was in one of the two ballrooms in the basement of the Crowne Plaza Hotel
. When we walked in, there were the senior members of the organization welcoming all people very warmly. And when we walked in, each round table had eight chairs on it tagged with the names of the reserver; in our case, it was mine :P At first, it was chilled out as people were walking in and people were simpy mingling. But once the room started filling up, the party was on. They started off with an oriental group playing some old lebanese tunes followed by one of the visitors singing live, and she was pretty good:) Throughout the night, they were passing out gifts from Yves Saint Laurent
, Sultan Center
, and others. Also, each table had a bunch of chocolates offered by Nestle
. We didnt head to the buffet till 12:00 and the food was pretty good, not much diversity though, but that was no problem. We ended up staying there till 3:00 a.m. sipping coffee and finishing off our hubbly bubblies:) Senior members were passing around asking who is an LAU alumni and not a member in their association, of which I was one since this was the first event of theirs I attend. All in all, it was a great night. Looking forward to others to come!
