  • The program was a spoof related to talk shows greatest moments, and we reminisced about the legends of Late Night. There was a “The Walk of Talk Show Fame” recognizing decades of talk show legends. There was a sit-down dinner, the Dessert Dash, Wine & Spirits Pull, photo booth, entertainment, and an “after party” concluding with dessert and conversation. Plus attendees could take home a personalized engraved glass.
