The searchlights could be seen miles away. Ladies enjoyed gourmet Cappuccino, a chocolate fountain, strawberries and marshmallows, and jewelry browsing. No purchases were allowed. Each lady created a wish list filled with earrings, rings, bracelets and pendants. The idea is to make Christmas shopping easier for the men in their lives. Approximately 75 women attended the event that included drawings every 15 minutes for fun give-aways, and a free holiday gift once a wish list was submitted. "I love the place.
