Hi Christine,

I just want to say THANK YOU for all of your help during the bachelorette planning process. Friday night was one of the best nights we have EVER HAD! We felt like celebrities and the Bride-to-Be absolutely love it!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your help over the past few months and especially the day of the event. I know I was a little skeptical and nervous about how the night was going to pan out, but talking to you made me feel 100% percent comfortable when the time came to make the decision. It truly was a pleasure working with you and I will be sure to recommend Eat, Drink, & Be Merry to anyone looking to have a blast in NYC!

Thanks again,



Kate and Niki,

I just wanted to thank you for helping us throw a wonderful surprise party for our friend this past Friday at the 13th Step.  Everything went absolutely perfectly and we really benefited from your suggestions and helpful advice.  Carrie (the party manager) was also instrumental in helping us carry out the surprise.  Our friend was shocked as planned and all the guests had a great time.

Thanks again for being so accommodating and responsive throughout the whole process.  I will definitely recommend Eat Drink & Be Merry to people in the future!


Hi Everyone,

We all had a great time doing the Pub Crawl with your company.  The food was delicious, the staff was excellent and the bars were allgreat fun!  My entire party thanks you for your hospitality and for showing us a great time in NYC!  We would definitely recommend this package to people and would consider doing it again in the future.



Hello Staff,

The bachelor party we had on August 7th was a great success.  We had a group of 10 and all had a great time the whole night.  Everyone on your staff from waitresses to managers, etc…were very accommodating and made the night that much easier for all, especially for me as the best man.  It was a stress free night which just made it that much better to party.  Thank you all so much.  I would definitely do this again and also recommend it to others.



The event was great!  We’ll be back in two years for the next daughter’s 21st (yes, the one who tried unsuccessfully to sneak in to Kathryn’s party).  The space at 13th Step is fantastic, both the party room and the main bar.  The staff could not have been nicer.  We had some problems with uninvited guests but I don’t know how to control for that, other than a guest list.  You have a very professional staff and it was a pleasure working with you.  I will let you know (in case anyone asks) that I had an equally professional experience with U.S. Coachways for a party bus in and out of the city.  Have a great summer.


Party went extremely well! The place was great for the type of event planned and everyone enjoyed. Bartenders were great and poured some strong drinks. We liked that the place was not too crowded even though it was a Saturday. Will definitely plan another event with you guys. Thanks!



I was actually going to write an email unprompted but hadn’t had a chance yet.

The party was amazing and I can attribute that directly to this staff along with the folks at the Gin Mill. Planning was simple and i received plenty of information upfront so that I knew what to expect. The speakeasy room was so much fun and created a great atmosphere. Both the bartender and the doorman were pleasant to the guests and fun to work with.

Thank you for making this party successful. I will be booking the wiked pub crawl for a bachelorette party shortly due to this great experience.

Dear Christine, Kate, Niki & Cortney,

I just wanted to say that our Wicked Pub Crawl on Saturday, July 17 was a tremendous success. From the Gin Mill where we started and all through the night we enjoyed the best treatment from bartenders, waitresses, managers and security. We had a reliable driver and great girls. The planning was very well done and I want to thank you for a great service in bringing all the elements together. As best man, I was feeling a lot of pressure to deliver an epic bachelor party for my brother. Your careful planning took a lot of the pressure off of me, and I still got to take all the credit! Our guests were blown away by it all, and we had a great night. Thank you!



Hi All,

I just wanted to thank you for helping out The Grit Theatre Company with our fundriaser. Eric was great that night, helping us achieve our goals. Having to switch our date back a week took a toll on us, because many of our guests were on vacation, but we manged to make it a pretty successful night. We are planning more fundraisers for the fall and winter seasons, and we will definitely keep Eat Drink and be Merry in mind for our parties.

Thank you so much!

Warm Regards,


Hi guys,

This was my third consecutive bday party in the Speakeasy Room at the Gin Mill.  The staff was excellent.  You asked for constructive feedback.  I really tried but could not come up with anything.  Sorry, but your people are that good.  I always have between 40-50 friends attend and they all say that you guys run a great party.
