    Networking at the Hard Rock

    ISES Hard Rock Cafe Networking Event – April 12, 2011 contributed by Celia Gannon
    Over 65 ISES NYC members and their guests enjoyed the best of the Hard Rock Cafe during the April 12th networking event held at the iconic Times Square location. Attendees mixed and mingled like rock stars in the private New York Room, enjoying an abundant menu of specialty passed hors d’oeuvres, a Southwestern-inspired station and top-shelf open bar.

    The evening included personal guided tours of the Hard Rock’s legendary rock n’ roll memorabilia and unique event spaces. The enthusiastic crowd participated in a business card drawing, with the winner receiving a customized gift-basket of Hard Rock swag.

    Special thanks to our generous sponsors: John Pasquale, Director of Sales and Marketing and the entire Hard Rock Cafe team, as well as photographer David Fletcher of NY Best Musicians.
