Past events

Our last events!

Toad in the hole

Perhaps Britain's least appetisingly-named meal, this dish of sausages in Yorkshire pudding batter is said to have gained its unusual moniker because it looks like toads popping their heads from a hole

Bubble and squeak

Once upon a time, thrifty Britons with left-over vegetabes and potatoes from a roast dinner wouldn't have even considered throwing them away - they'd have fried the remnants up to make bubble and squeak.

Welsh rarebit/rabbit

Tourists in Wales must be regularly disappointed to find that the traditional "rabbit" they've ordered is little more than a gourmet version of cheese on toast.

Cullen skink

A speciality from the town of Cullen on Scotlands north-east coast, Cullen skink is a thick soup made from haddock, poatoes and onions.

Stargazey pie

Stargazey pie sounds rather quaint, but this Cornish dish of pilchards baked under a pastry crust won't appeal to everyone - it traditionally has fish heads poking through the crust, so they appear to be gazing up at the sky.

Singing hinnies

A rather delightful name for a northern dish of currant cakes cooked on a griddle. "Singing" refers to the sizzling sound of the cakes as they cook in fat, while "hinny" is, of course, a northern term of endearment.

Angels on horseback

This traditional Victorian appetizer of oysters wrapped in bacon and grilled is little known today. But the snack's dastardly cousin, the devil on horseback (prunes or dates wraped in bacon, pictured right) is still a common feature of our Christmas dinners.

St Louis

The St. Louis area has so many possibilities when it comes to where to have an event. From the obvious, to the unique, I can help you find the perfect spot for your next event. Not everyone has the time or energy or resources to make their vision come to life. I have the resources to make it happen. My heart and soul go into making your event one that you will cherish forever.

Paige Gruszczynski. Every girl dreams of her wedding day. But not every girl has the creativity or knowledge to put that dream into reality. I love the fact I have been able to do that for my clients …I can make their vision a reality. Or, if they need direction, I can help them create that vision. I have always been the person my friends turn to when planning a party or event. I enjoy listening to a dream or thought and turning it into an unforgettable event. I have planned parties for teenage girls, weddings for client’s friends, and corporate events for local businesses.

Venue Management

MW Events discovers and unlocks revenue potential within your lobbies, patios and common areas through events. We provide a unique combination of services to transform your non-income producing space in your facility into a valuable event revenue producing opportunity. We provide a turn-key service to identify, create, market, sell and operate your newly discovered income producing public areas. We not only generate revenue through events; but we drive publicity and buzz to leverage the exposure and recognition of your building or facility. Your next tenant is just one event away from signing a deal.

We offer to you an opportunity to create a source of revenue and exposure without dedicating internal sales, marketing and operations resources to market and manage. MW Events will engage our internal team and strategic partners to leverage your public areas to attract and promote event business. Through a blend of Web Site and Social Media Optimization, blog, tweet, traditional marketing and sales we will craft a winning strategy to bring to you event revenue and exposure.

MW Events will provide a comprehensive asset management program. This program begins with an interview of the stakeholders to determine asset expectations. Secondly a tactical or strategic consulting study will be performed. The results will be fully reviewed with stakeholders to create an operational, financial baseline and stretch objectives. MW Events will assume responsibility for the oversight of the day to day management of the real property and preserving the physical asset. We believe as your asset manager we are responsible to be a catalyst for positive change. We make positive things happen, creating value and solving problems.
