There is a reason that I love May, the entire month is considered a festival month, and the month prior to June, beginning of summer which I always truly look forward to. We were lucky this year that we did not get much snow
- so it is simply wonderful to welcome in summer.


As always we want to thank our good friends, beautiful ladies, and good looking gentlemen including our VIP guests who attended our event. Despite the fact that many of our friends were sick (which also included me) Bill Lanndis, Miss Ohio, Lindsey Davis, and many of our friends and Super Models who were traveling. We had another spectacular event! Our guests graciously thanked us for creating
another memorable event.


Our VIP Guests included Award Winner Producer, Director and Writer Dean Love (of Life in Mars, FBI File, Queen Elizabeth 1 The Virgin Queen and other movies) and the German Baroness Marion Von Buchard back from her European trip. Also in attendance that evening was Georgios Michailidis, Trade Commissioner of Greece, Sandy Jacolow Chief Information Officer of Silverstein Towers of the World Trade Center and other Towers, and the Economist Wojtec Trocewicz of the Polish Consulate husband of the lovely Sabina Klimek, the Trade Commissioner of Poland. More guests: Debbie Higgins President of Galaxy Jets, and Sunny J. Barkats Founder/President of JSBARKATS Law Office who has 18 lawyers in his practice. I have known him for many years remembering when he started off with only 1 lawyer, and now has 18 lawyers - I admire him greatly for his amazing success. Also who was there was Celebrity Architect Stephen Valentine who travels all over the world and who always attempts to come to our events when in New York, Gerard McKeon Publisher of Black Tie International Magazine. And we must mention of our International beautiful super model, actress and beauty queen, the gorgeous Angelina Shipillina. The other models were sick or traveling. It was another fabulous night with everyone having had such a great time. Those who missed our last event make sure to RSVP right away for our next event.


Recently, we came back from our European Tour, traveling withme: Bill Lee Lanndis, Kristoffer Lepsoy and Mary Tavarez as my Press Crew where we covered several events in Europe for Black Tie International Magazine & TV. Every year I get invited to Europe for the WINE FESTIVAL in VIENNA, AUSTRIA (we stay consistently at the Intercontinental Hotel in Vienna) which we thoroughly enjoy. From there we journey on to the famous WOODEN CASTLE called "STANGLWIRT" in the AUSTRIAN ALPS where royals and celebrities vacation. Guests you may recognize who stayed there: The PRINCE OF MONACO, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER and many other celebrities. We next head off to SALZBURG to the residence of the famous COMPOSER MOZART and the REAL MANSION from the movie SOUND OF MUSIC. Then we travel on to Berlin Germany and London where we usually stay at the Intercontinental Hotels and the Crown Plaza (except when we go to the Austrian Alps we stay at the Wooden Castle: "Stanglwirt"). We dined with one of Royals’ friends, the Baroness Maria and after dinner she gave us an amazing tour of Kensington Palace showing us all the rooms on the first floor all the way to the very top. The Kensington Palace is where the Royals in England live and grew their dynasty since the 15th Century before Buckingham palace was built. Queen Victoria grew up in and Princess Diana lived there, and now it is William and Kate’s turn to live there. You will read more in about this in the Black Tie International Magazine when I finish our European Tour article.


Thank you to our great friends our regulars and new friends for your monthly support, especially a generous nod to our VIP GUESTS and our members from Elite Professional Networking Group (EPNG), and friends of Black Tie International Magazine. Our guests always have such a fun time usually we start off with a group picture, again for "Black Tie International Magazine" We introduced our birthday celebrant Ellen Chiu with her birthday cake, who works as a model for Richard Alan Management, and then afterwards began the entertainment.


ENTERTAINMENT BY: Patricia Burck, a Belly Dancer.
The guests enjoyed her show very much. To get in touch with Patricia email her at



The evening again lasted way past midnight, and as always our guests were having such fun talking and networking so when my group and I had to leave at midnight we did not want to leave. We congratulated our lucky guests who won our door prizes. Our lucky winner for the 5 NIGHTS 4 DAYS CANCUN RESORT TICKET FOR 4 PEOPLE was William "Chip" Ledford, Executive Director for Morgan Stanley. Make sure to RSVP right away for our next event so you could be our next lucky winner.
