For H.I.S Incorporated “Happiness is the Truth”

mehappyhat imsohappyhour

 

I love creating experiences that make people feel good. By identifying the appropriate environment, applying fun themes, engaging laughter, and listening to happy music!! So when presented with the opportunity to host an event at Howl at the Moon in Baltimore, MD, I knew it was time to put on my thinking cap (literally)!

In a world surrounded by so many unhappy, unhealthy, unmotivated, and uninspired people, you have to find a way to shield yourself from the negativity that constantly tries to permeate your soul.   Gathering friends, meeting new people, taking care of yourself, and finding inner peace requires a conscious effort in such an unconscious world. Sometimes you just need a little help in providing that outlet of opportunity. My goal, was to shine the light of happiness down on the masses (whatever mass that may be).

Considering the event was going to be during “happy hour”, which if you think about it, most people that go to happy hours don’t look very happy, at least when they first arrive. Whether drowning out their sorrows, de-stressing from a rough day at the office, or just trying to forget whatever unhappy thing is bothering them, it usually takes more than an hour to fix these problems.   That was NOT the type of happy hour I wanted to have!

Inspired by Pharrell’s “Because I’m Happy” music revolution, I envisioned singing happy people, wearing crazy happy hats, and having a happy good time!   Yeah, I know, a bit of happy overload…..but is it really? I didn’t thinks so, and hence the “I’m So Happy” Hour was born! Guests were invited to come happy, with hats, and to bring other happy people with them.   In the weeks leading up to the event, I posted inspirational quotes and pictures, as motivation for people to embark on their own quest for happiness.

The scene was set, I put on my happy face and replica of Pharrell’s happy hat, and waited. So did it work? Were the people happy?

Happiness isn’t tangible. It can’t be measured, quantified, or surveyed, BUT you can see it, feel it, want it, and choose it.   Each guests walked through the door embracing a “happiness is the truth” mindset, and because of that we all saw, felt, wanted, and chose to do just that…………HAPPY!

Sex and the City – Ladies Day Out Volume III – Savory Selections: Wit & Wisdom

witnwisdom1

In the words of Virginia Woolf, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well”. Each “Sex and the City: Ladies Day Out” (LDO) dining experience, whether breakfast, dinner, or brunch, is intended to stimulate and delight each of your five senses in an environment intriguing in sight, with socializing sounds, and scrumptous scents, which evoke a culinary temptation to touch and tantalize your tongue.

This LDO restaurant selection has a name most fitting for the diverse and multi-generational group of women attending.  For a group like ours, dining at a spot named “Wit & Wisdom” seems to perfectly blend in with the life experiences and personal stories of these lovely ladies. Called a tavern, though it looks nothing of the sort, this modern American restaurant exudes a uniquely elegant ambiance most fitting for the luxury hotel it resides in.

Named in Baltimore magazine’s “50 Best Restaurants” issue as a Gold Medal winner, this Four Seasons charmer boasts large windows overlooking the harbor, gorgeous waterfront views, and streams of natural light to the dining area.  The chic lobby, breathtaking bar, and classy décor provides the perfect backdrop for rounding out this LDO weekend. Created by award-winning chef Michael Mina, Wit & Wisdom serves “comfort food with a contemporary Eastern Seaboard twist”.

The weekend brunch menu is filled with both buffet and a la carte selections ranging from Brioche French Toast, Farmer’s Market Frittata, and a Smoked Salmon Bar.  The ladies are set to enjoy a picture-perfect Sunday cuisine before indulging in an afternoon of pampering and relaxation at the Four Seasons Spa, located only an elevator ride away!

With a visually stunning layout, intimate settings, and satisfying savory selections, Wit & Wisdom receives H.I.S Incorporated’s Grade A+ rating as a designated dining venue for the upcoming LDO event. For more information on this Harbor East Baltimore restaurant, visit the restaurants website at:  http://www.witandwisdombaltimore.com/
