Fleet Week 2014 Makes a Return To Staten Island

Fleet Week 2014 Makes a Return To Staten Island . Staten Island Fleet Week was established in 1990 while the Stapleton Homeport was an active U.S. Naval Base. The organization was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1999.  At it’s inception we started as a  community based “Adopt-A-Sailor” program, which enabled local families to adopt crew-members for the day and treat them to either a home cooked meal, or visit the sites of New York City.

An all volunteer board and staff enable the group to fulfill their mission to provide recreation, morale and support the welfare of the visiting crew-members to the New York City area.  To date, close to 250 military ships have visited the Homeport site since 2000.  Fleet Week continues to bring in excess of 30,000 visitors to the event, not including the the crew-members and their families.  Fleet Week is an annual event which takes place each year during the Memorial Day holiday.

As a joint effort with the North Shore Business Association, to show our appreciation we provided complementary lunch to the men and women sailors of the  U.S Navy.  It was our pleasure giving back to the men and women who serve us.

Staten Island Sports Hall of Fame is a non for profit 501C – dedicated to recognizing and enshrining outstanding individuals who have made exceptional contributions to Staten Island Sports History.

 

578031_394502360582759_1156180468_nMission
From the beginning, the task of Hall of Fame was simple: “To recognize those individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to Staten Island sports history, and by virtue of their accomplishments, service or force of character, have enriched that history for all time.”

About
Since then, the members of the Hall of Fame committee have tried to live up to that mandate. It has moved from its humble beginnings on the CSI campus to a permanent home at the Catholic Youth Organization’s Center at Mount Loretto, thanks to the generosity of the Archdiocese of New York. And it has grown over the years, both in the number of athletes it honors as well as the prestige it exudes as the caretaker of the Island’s sports past.

From the plaques of the inductees hanging on its walls, to the photos that hang from its ceiling, to the memorabilia displayed in its nearly two dozen trophy cases, our sports past comes alive. You can almost hear the crack of Bobby Thomson’s bat when he hit his famous 1951 “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” as well as feel the sting a football tackle leaves on someone wearing a leather helmet from New Dorp’s glory days. There are bats, balls and gloves, uniforms and baseball cards, trophies and scorebooks – even a luge used in the Winter Olympics. If it’s important to Staten Island’s sports past, it’s on display.

Star of We tv‘s “My Fair Wedding,” (which chez vous Catering has been featured on) David Tutera is spilling some of his expert secrets and tips in this month’s Bazaar magazine.

Here are 10 of his top tips for planning the perfect wedding:

1. Before jumping into the details, take the time to envision the end result.

2. Remember, less can be more. All you have to do is stay thrifty with the money you have available to you.

3. All the details count when it comes to invitations. They should set a tone of excitement for the entire affair.

4. Ask for several correlating designs for your centerpieces. Doing so should cut costs and add depth to the aesthetic.

5. Pick a dress that compliments your body type. Know what works best for you to find a dress that truly is a “perfect fit.”

6. Hire enough makeup artists for your wedding and predetermine the order of appointments.

7. The food should convey your personality. Create a menu that is inspired by places and things enjoyed by you and your loved one.

8. Do something new every 30 minutes. A new drink, food item, lighting change; whatever it is, it will help to keep things fresh and your guests eagerly anticipating your next move.

9. Be sure to show appreciation by letting your guests know how much it means to you that they are all there to join you on your special day.

10. Enjoy every step of the way. Wedding planning should feel like an exciting series of events leading up to a grand finale.

chez vous teams up with David Tutera for Monte Carlo inspired wedding

Melissa Mazzei & the staff of chez vous caterers teamed up with celebrity party planner David Tutera to cater Nicole & Dwayne’s Monte Carlo inspired wedding at the Prince George Ballroom in New York City.

What better way to celebrate a Monte Carlo themed wedding than by having chez vous ,a French catering company owed by an Italian family cater the wedding.

chez vous is French for, at your home or as we say in catering, at your location of choice. For over 28 years chez vous has been catering to the hip & stylish when celebrating their weddings and important events.

Monte Carlo lies in the French Riviera on the Mediterrean Sea coastline in the south east corner of France. It neighbors with Italy.

When creating a Monte Carlo menu, elegance and royalty are what comes to mind. What better than to start the meal with white gold, better know as Belgian Endive or French Endive.

Any Monte Carlo inspired menu would include the freshest fish from the region, a Wild Salmon will be served accompanied with side dishes from their Italian neighbor.

Dessert could have been none other than Crème Brulee topped with Italian Biscotti & Fresh Raspberries.
