Over the years I have had the honor to know and work with one of the true professionals in the Event Planning and Destination Management industry. Anthony Napoli of Briggs NYC is a pro’s pro. He is the go-to person for “everything Manhattan” and “everything beyond”. His clients are in for a New York City experience like no other! For more years than I can count on one hand we have had the privilege to be the florist for the events that are organized by Briggs. Because of Tony and this amazing organization we have decorated at the United Nations, at Ellis Island, at Gotham Hall and countless other landmarks.
Tony has a unique perspective on this weekend and when I received Tony’s February newsletter, I asked him for permission to reprint it on our blog… (thankfully he said “yes”!) – Apropos of Valentine’s Day, here is Tony’s perspective on what to do this weekend – enjoy!
“The stars have lined up for a multiple holiday weekend this February 12th to the 15th. The festivities start off on Friday, February 12th the traditional date for celebrating Lincoln’s Birthday (before Congress passed the Monday Holiday Act – of course they left the Fourth of July alone!). And that evening you can toast Honest Abe while watching the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Saturday is a major day to celebrate Mardi Gras or as we call it in NYC, Carnevale! Sunday is a double header: Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year’s – the Year of the Tiger! We can all rest up on Monday, Presidents Day! Happy Birthday George! So get out your patriotic songs, beads and doubloons, fortune cookies and dancing shoes cause it’s all “ashes ashes all fall down” for 40 days of Lent!. What a weekend!”
