  • Main Event and my Event Designer were FABULOUS!!! They were such a pleasure to work with. People commented that they didn’t know vegetarian food could be so delicious! The food and presentation were phenomenal. The head waiter took excellent care of us all night. Another thing we love about this company is their green practices, but you can tell that they sincerely care about the environment and their business’ impact and it’s not just a marketing ploy. Main Event was truly fantastic. Use them!!!
