70/60/30 – Congratulations, Lisa & Ken Block!

It’s all about the numbers! Lisa and Ken Block threw their signature numbers party for their birthdays and anniversary: 70/60/30 (previous bashes included 60/50/20 and 50/40/10) to the delight of a great number of their friends and family. The Prime Social Rooftop was the location for the soiree, which included dancers from Quixotic, signage on the building, gold balloons, fireworks, delicious fare, and specialty drinks to keep everyone happy and dancing. Congratulations to a couple who knows how to celebrate in style.
