Fondue Fantasy, the most recent event in the popular and
successful Young Alumni Happy Hour series was held at Honey, a
trendy Euro-lounge in the Chelsea/Meatpacking area of Manhattan on
Thursday, September 17, 2009.
40 St. John’s University recent graduates enjoyed the ambience of
the warm mahogany paneled bar, sipped complimentary first cocktails
and relished the variety of fondue flavors which included Classic
Swiss, Gouda Chipotle and of course, Chocolate.
“Events like this remind me of what I love about St. John’s,”
said Young Alumni Committee member Shelly Garcia '05TCB, '07MBA.
“It’s great to see so many familiar faces.”
Many of the
attendees expressed their overall satisfaction with the event,
declaring it to be one of the best happy hours they ever attended.
They also emphasized the value of having events where they can
reunite with former classmates.
“This was a great way to reconnect with old friends you do not
get to see very often,” said Alex Shalan '09CPS.
Amy Szeto '09CPS, who came with friends to celebrate a special
occasion, noted “I really enjoyed the event. It was a fun way to
spend my birthday and a good way to incorporate friends into the
St. John’s family.”
The series continues next month with an OktoberFest-themed
beer tasting at the Chelsea Brewing Company on Thursday,
October 15, 2009.
