Heelz was 'a great fete' from 'tough critic': Mr. Fete
So Friday June 29th was Myst’s 4th venture of the all inclusive fete “Heelz.” If you weren’t there, then, well, I guess we’ll see what you missed out on in this review.
The Pavilion was a very classy location for the sophisticated event. It allowed those who had previously been to the restaurant an opportunity to see it in a different light. However, if you’re like me, and could have never afforded it, you finally got to see the place. The location was pretty ideal. The food was located on the grass area near the stage and below the dance floor. I found it a tad odd that there were no bars down there, they were all upstairs. The bars, however, were very abundant and I never felt like I had to wait too long to get a drink. The venue may have been a tad bit too spread out; with the stage being on the grass below the actual building. However, that’s nothing to really complain about. It did get a tad bit hot at times on the dance floor though.
All in All, location receives a 4/5.
The music was pretty standard. You heard popular songs, old songs and it spanned all genres. There weren’t many song surprises there, but it was mixed well and exciting. Tian Winter had an excellent performance. One which many have said to be his best. It definitely was the highlight of the night.
Music receives a 3.5/5.
Heelz, which coined itself as sophisticated, was just that. People were dressed very well and it made you realize that a dress code can really set the ambience of the party. I must say that it started off a bit slow. It seemed as though people were wondering whether to socialize, dance, or eat. The party really kicked off after Tian Winter hit the stage. People left the grass and headed straight to the dance floor and st the great time in motion.
The overall vibe receives a 3.5/5 (Just for having a slow start).
Here is the important part of the review. Was Heelz worth the money? (Especially in this tough time) For a $150 (in advance) fete, you should really expect a lot. Well, to be honest, Heelz delivered. The many different bars, ambience and premium alcohol served all oozed “expensive.” Let’s get to the food. There was shrimp, smoked salmon rolls, goat water and tons of dessert. It was awesome actually. Heelz most definitely provided your money’s worth. I have yet to see a fete provide as much as Heelz has.
Price: $150 Actual Worth: $150 + making the worth 5/5.
I would definitely recommend Heelz. It really is a great fete. The food and drinks and performances are already worth the money. Then you have the music, vibes and fun to add on to that. If you missed it this year, definitely try to go next year. Just make sure to go early!
