Thanksgiving, a day we give thanks for all the blessings that we received in this past year. We thank God for our families, wonderful friends, good health, and all the other blessings bestowed upon us. Those are the reasons we celebrate THANKSGIVING every year. Our celebration was another smash hit - another great event, and a fun night! 
The winner of the Grand Door Prize, a 5 night and 4 day stay at a Cancun Resort for 4 people this month was Corrine (Statia) Thomas President & Founder of Absolute Events by Corrine. Please do RSVP for the next event! Right away, you could be a winner of several door prizes and the Grand Door Prize Cancun Resort tickets for 4 people.  Make sure not to miss our events and RSVP right away to or or YOU MIGHT BECOME OUR NEXT LUCKY WINNER!


We are thankful for are our beautiful guests, loyal friends, and our VIP friends for attending all of our events through-out these past years. They are the life of our parties at every event, loyally attending every month. Their loyalty and friendship is what we will truly treasure forever and cannot be replaced by wealth or any material things. I hope that you did not forget to say thank you to your loved ones, friends and the people that have helped you and been part of your life in the past and in your present. And if you have time to reciprocate their kindness; do it if you can. It does not have to be a big thing, even small kindnesses mean much. It is the thought and intent that counts: that you actually wanted to reciprocate their kindness. And if you see people that need help please do try to help them. Especially help our veterans. If we don't get immediate gratification here on earth, I am sure that we all will receive our true gifts in heaven.


This was another wonderful gathering of handsome people, gorgeous ladies, well attired and good looking men including our VIP guests starting off with the beautiful Maria Soccor Actress and Director. Maria’s movie won in Berlin, London, Madrid and many other places (also, a cousin of the actor Stanley Tucci who played the husband of Merrill Strip in the movie about Julia Child, and was in many movies). Also attending: the Economist Wojtek Trojewicz of the Polish Consulate, Georgios Michailides, Trade Commisioner of Greece, and several guests from the United Nations. Of note: Kenneth Flornes CEO/Founder of Nectar Furnished Apartments International, Sandy Jacolow, Chief Information Officer of Silverstein Properties of the Billionaire Larry Silverstein of the World Trade Centers, Gerald McKeon, Publisher of Black Tie International Magazine, Sunny J. Barkats ESQ,  and International Opera Singer Estere Diva  winner of Eurovision,  and Journalist Warren Lederman of the TV Show TMZ. Our good looking friends from Poland headed by Dorota Junol and Barbara Czuj, Lady Architect Irena Skoda (who is one of the Architect of the Trump World Tower), Celebrity Architect Stephen Valentines, of course we must mention our European super model:  Liga Fremaine, and Richard Holland Actor/Model, and so many more guests. 


We had 5 birthday celebrants that evening Actor and Director Maria Soccor, Kenneth McClure, the VP and General Manager of Hospitality Holding (that runs the World Bar, The Empire, the Madison and Vine and 6 other establishments), Susana Koehler President of Sustainable Global Network, the Friend of the Baroness Susana Koning of the Netherlands and Switzerland, and of course our very own Carlos Mallos who also celebrated his birthday. Estere Diva led the singing of Happy Birthday to our 5 celebrants – and after a while we served these monstrous chocolate cakes.


Estere, a seasoned Soprano with performance experience in many musicals and European productions, in movies and television shows. Estere has been seen in Europe's premier music festival, "The Eurovision", and won first place in Paris when she sang with 'Alpha-Betha'. Growing up with an opera singer for a father, Estere watched her dad at shows and rehearsals fueling her passion and pursuit of musical performances at such an early age. Later on in life she developed a love of the Pop and Jazz classics and began extensive coaching and training in versatile operatic endeavors. She's built an extensive repertoire that features Puccini, Bellini, Verdi, Lehar, and Catalani, and her debut at Carnegie Hall in 2009 was met with much acclaim, bringing her back for a second performance in 2010.
Estere regularly captures audiences near and abroad with her effortless high notes, unique flair and pitch, perfect ability to cater to upscale galas, corporate events, wedding receptions, as well as laid back private parties, birthdays, family reunions, and other special celebrations. Let Estere serenade you and your guests at that upcoming event. Her contact phone number #1-201-248-1112.


The celebration was another long event night where guests remained 'til midnight - including yours truly. We were all having so much fun that no one wanted to leave. Again guests came from other different parts of the world: the states, the tri-state area, and from many countries represented. Our friends from countries included Poland, Russia, Croatia, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Philippines, Greece, France (the Music Director Yan Saquet), Spain, South America, Italy, Russia, Lithuania, Israel, Ukraine, England, Ireland, Mexico and China, including many others.
Our events are always a wonderful gathering place of locals, national and International guests - a true meeting place of great minds... So many intelligent, unique and fun conversations happening simultaneously with business and corporates, elite professionals, finance, members of the Press, celebrities, movie people, and diplomats.
The venue was held again at The World Bar at Trump Tower World International by the United Nations, and produced by Gloria T. Cressler, President/Founder of Elite Professional Networking Group, and International Correspondent and Host of Black Tie International Magazine & TV. This event was co-hosted by Black Tie International Magazine, Powerteam International, Giorgio G. Cognac (by famous designer Giorgio GUCCI), and Emperors Vodka, International Wine Master and Global Fine Wines & Food Connection, Fabulous Cooking with Queenglori.
