When creatives collaborate, dreams come true! Back in the fall of 2016, we had a light bulb moment while speaking with our catering partner Attitude on Food. Attitude on Food had always wanted to host an epic event in our historic ballroom. We toyed around with a variety of ideas, but nothing ever seemed quite right. It wasn’t until Nathan Newhouse and Melissa Tibben started brainstorming with their creative staff and culinary team that an idea slowly became a spark that would eventually light a flame within each of us. This flame became our burning passion; our dreams come to realization.
We wanted this event to revival something that you could only witness in Las Vegas or New York. If we were going to commit to something, it had to be epic. If guests didn’t leave with their minds blown and their jaws hanging on the floor, it wasn’t done right.
After much discussion, Attitude on Food and the Scoular Ballroom decided we needed to bring in a team of creative minds; people whose execution would match our vision. In time, a team was assembled and after months and months of planning, our collective vision became an amazing night full of culinary surprises and delightful entertainment.
Sixty guests enjoyed a five course meal prepared by Attitude on Food that featured edible flowers and dirt, lighting clams on fire, and a deconstructed fruit cake (just to name a few). Each course was paired with a craft cocktail also prepared by Attitude on Food. The entertainment for the evening included an energetic band, DJ, tap dancers, baton twirlers and so much more that was provided by Omaha Musicians Live and Image Entertainment.
