Backyard Parties' shindig gurus delight celebrants and upgrade bland backyards with a mobile complement of entertainment and edibles. Mousy houses transform into multimedia Cinderellas for three hours under the skillful tutelage of the party pros, who transport and assemble movie and interactive gaming projection systems outfitted with 10-foot screens, surround sound, and high definition Blu-ray visuals. Relieved of the dubious pleasures of prepping and performing emergency electronic CPR, hosts can mingle at will or recruit gourmet wingmen to strategically chew through moveable 15-person feasts of barbecued chicken, hot dogs, and other flame-licked fare as well as theater classics such as popcorn, cookies, and buttered ticket stubs. Catering to a gamut of sepia-toned childhood video viewings, Wii vs. Xbox playoffs, and organizational soirees, Backyard Parties’ local owner-operators ensure that up to 50 participants can view and schmooze free of the confines and sticky floors of traditional venues.
