Adults and Children of all ages will never forget some of our incredible November events! We were proud to provide food and space for many charity events, coming-of-age parties, and not one, but two Disney-themed celebrations! These events will surely go down in our history like a tale as old as time.


Ben’s Bar Mitzvah

It’s not everyday that a young man turns the big 1-3. Ben wanted his Bar Mitzvah to be the talk of the town with lots of balloons, music, food, and games! Guests drank glow-in-the-dark mocktails (and there were cocktails for the chaperones), and enjoyed a meal complete with a live-action wing station, a corn risotto station, and ice cream from a giant shoe box for dessert!

Catering by Jonathan Byrd’s understands how important Bar/Bat Mitzvahs are to families and that’s why we work with you to meet religious and dietary restrictions, without ruining everyone’s fun. No matter the celebration, we aim to make it a hit for guests of all ages.

Sophia’s 18th Birthday

When your teenager wants to have an awesome birthday party filled with great food, lots of dancing, and backdrops that are snapchat worthy; you could have the party at your house or you can have it at ours! 502 East Event Centre is where we hosted Sophia’s epic “Beauty and the Beast” theme party with all her friends and family. This young lady had a blast dancing the night away with friends and family surrounding her. Her boyfriend even dressed up in a Beast mask and danced with her; if that’s not true love, I don’t know what is. Happy birthday Sophia!

Henning Wedding

There’s so much stress in the planning process to finding the ideal venue that many people overlook what’s in their own backyard. As long as you’re surrounded by the ones you love as you say “I Do,” who’s to say you need to tie the knot at traditional church or a royal ballroom? Jennifer and Marc dodged the stress of venue shopping and had a beautiful wedding in their backyard, complete with Catering by Jonathan Byrd’s. From small events like wine or whiskey tastings to big events such as a  wedding, Jonathan Byrd’s will cater events to private residences.  Congratulations to the happy couple!

Fundraiser Gala

Some of our favorite events are the ones that raise money for those less fortunate than us. At Jonathan Byrd’s we’re always looking for new ways to help those in need, and that’s why we love having fundraisers at 502 East Event Centre. While we had several this November, this group really made an impact on the attendees. This fundraiser benefitted needy children in Haiti. The centerpieces and many of the items in the silent auction were created by the Haitians that the organization benefits. Items included beautiful pieces of art work, hand-made jewelry, and adorable figurines. Guests at the event enjoyed live music and had a great time supporting this cause.

Swift Wedding

Brittney truly is a beauty, but I don’t know that we would call Michael a beast. They invited their friends and family to be their guests to their fabulous “Beauty and the Beast” theme wedding complete with candelabras, roses in bell jars, and gray stuff (it’s delicious). This wedding had a gorgeous ceremony backdrop and lots of great details from the movie throughout the night. Congratulations to this beautiful couple!

Bridal Tasting

For all our upcoming couples that are getting hitched at 502 East or elsewhere, we have bridal tastings that are a lot of fun and a good reason to gorge yourself for the sake of your wedding. We invite couples to try our most popular menu items before they create their own custom buffets. This time around we had help decorating from our friends at Banzi Balloons and Oberer’s Flowers. If you’re interested in a caterer for your 2019 wedding, call Catering by Jonathan Byrd’s for a free quote and – if you book with us – a free tasting!
