GALAS AND GRAND AFFAIRS: When presidents and celebrities get together; when Vanity Fair has a special event; when the Screen Actors Guild has a party... The Plaza should be synonymous with award events and grand parties of the highest order. Some special circumstances with food and drink service may need to be addressed and included as part of the Plaza development. I suggest the use of outside contract services and all their amenities as are often used for many grand parties. From searchlights to valet parking, from a red-carpet grand entrance, to appropriate live music entertainment.
