How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Review on 4 parts: 1) Venue 2) Event 3) Food 4) Drinks. 1) Hudson Terrace is well decorated/furnished with a great view of the water. 2) Staff was friendly and entertaining, though it is clear the show is choreographed. 3) Food was good and there was much more than expected: soft pretzels, pita/hummus, chicken fingers. 4) The biggest disappointment here. Drinks are pre-made in large batches before guests arrive, and are (except for khalua) virgin. Patron gave out free cocktails to everyone before the "competition," which my date and I passed on thinking 6 rounds would be plenty of drinking. We almost had a great time anyway, but I guess the last pre-made drink (with half and half) sat out too long...
