HATS OFF EVENTS
As part of the History’s channel launch of Ronnie O’Sullivan’s American Hustle, TopHat were asked by Hats Off Events to cater a press event for the History channel for 130 guests at the Steel Yard, London, with a special guest appearance by Ronnie himself.
Our client asked us to create a menu which mimicked the journey Ronnie O’Sullivan takes through America on the new TV show. Ronnie immerses himself in America’s 300 year pool history, by travelling through New York City to Chicago and Memphis, ending in San Francisco.
TopHat created a grab food and bowl food menu synonymous to each city and to top off the event we put together an American candy pick and mix station, including gob stoppers, Nerds and Jolly Ranchers, for guests to help themselves to throughout the evening.
The menu highlights were deep pan pizza slices served in branded pizza boxes and the snooker ball cupcakes in an assortment of colours created by Pretty Sweet.
