I wanted to say that the party process went great, from initial planning until the train home that night! I applaud the waitress for being able to efficiently handle a party with an audience that requested many different drinks. The bouncer was also very nice, and accommodated me in any way that he could. I was very impressed with the service for our room and will be looking to use you guys again if we need another room.


Thanks again!!!





The party was awesome!!! I think everyone I invited had a good time — I definitely did 🙂 First of all, I loved the bar (13th Step) – it was packed with santas, but we still had plenty of room to hang out/dance. The bartenders were so friendly and attentive all night.  My only complaint is the doorman didn’t really know I was coming and it took a little while to get wristbands — no big deal though, things ran smoothly after that.  Great music, great vibe…3 hours flew by.

I thought the planning process was very well organized – I appreciated the phone call a few days prior to check in and alert me that the bar was participating in santacon…good to know.  E-mail correspondence is also nice – clear and efficient.

Thanks for a great time!



Dear E,D&Be Merry crew!

Forgive me for not getting to you sooner, I had a houseful of guests who came in for the party, and the last one left just today. My daughter and I (and all the guests we spoke to) both agree that the party was a smashing success, and you folks and Eric, the kitchen workers and servers and the DJ deserve most of the credit. The room looked great, the drinks flowed freely, the food was delicious, the people helpful and courteous. In fact, whenever I wanted to drop by the room to test the DVD, place the flowers, show someone the room, or deliver the cake, everyone went out of their way to help us (and not act like we were pains in the neck). We were very, very pleased with all aspects of that memorable night. So thank you all for your fine work!

Best regards, Lynda




My name is Mike Feeney, I was the party host on Friday, planned by Erica Brustman.  Let me just start off by saying : What a great night! You guys were so accomodating. Cortney was one if the best bartenders I ever had.

My friends had a great time and the fact that you guys had beer pong was even better. My only regret was that I got so sick that I was asked to leave by security (which was probably a good thing), and was not able to properly tip Cortney. I know my friends took care of her but that was the first thing that came to mind upon waking from my drunken stupor on Saturday morning. I vow the next time I am in the area to stop by and take care of the one who took care of us so well!

$30 top shelf open bar = best deal in the city. If I had to give one constructive bit of feedback it would be that the birthday boy( or girl) should not have to pay for the open bar special since they are bringing a lot of business into the bar. I know the bouncer said the 16th person would be free (and we certainly had upwards of about 20+ by the middle) but its hard to keep track at an open bar if you know what I mean. All in all, great night and we will be back!

The planning process was very easy. Christine, Kate, Nikki and Courtney were all very helpful and made me feel like everything was taken care. The reminder process about food was also extremely helpful. The on site staff were very helpful. They were inconspicuous yet I was able to find them whenever I needed everything. I could not have been more pleased with the entire process.

Thanks, Andrew



I would like to thank your organization for an outstanding party. I felt the staff over the phone (Courtney) as well as the bar tender Eric were very efficient and professional tending to the needs of my party. It was the perfect private set up and everyone who attended from my firehouse were very pleased. Three things to point out that were especially nice were 1) Replaced the food as soon as we needed, 2)We were able to listen to our own music, 3)Had someone placed at the door to collect money taking the stress and time off of myself to do so. Overall we had a great time and look forward doing business with your company in the future.
