60th Birthday Roast of Jon RENO LaBudde

60th Birthday Roast of Jon RENO LaBudde

Growing up here in sunny St. Pete, Florida was a treat. I was lucky enough to live on the west side of town, near park street and Abercrombie Park, just south of the Garden Drive-In. After graduating from Bogie in 1986, I found myself out and about, doing the normal guy stuff. Drinking beers, chasing the ladies, riding bikes all over town, playing video games at Aladdin’s Castle, hanging at the TI Fun Center and of course, at some point we all ended up at The BIG CATCH. And that’s where I, like most everyone else of those days, ended up meeting Jon. The Jon LaBudde. Jon RENO LaBudde, our Buddy. The birthday boy, who tonight, April 29, 2017, at historic venue NOVA 535 in beautiful Downtown St. Pete, aka DTSP, we gathered to shower with love, to honor and thank him for all that he’s done for us! How did we thank him? That’s the fun part! Read on and enjoy the 60th Birthday Roast of Jon RENO LaBudde!

50th Birthday with Friends Family and Fire

Growing up here in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida was certainly a treat. I was lucky enough to live on the west side of town, near park street and Abercrombie Park, just south of the Garden Drive-In. When I was 11 years old, another Michael moved into our neighborhood, and soon we were best of friends. Our neighborhood was filled with several families, so we always had plenty of playmates, for hide and go seek freeze-tag, kickball, Frisbee, soccer, tree climbing and lots and lots of bike riding. Mike was older and stronger and fell into the role of big brother and friend. We spent a ton of time together, certainly some of the best years of our lives. Fast Forward to tonight, as we celebrate with Friends Family and Fire!

A Moulin Rouge inspired 50th Birthday Celebration

A Moulin Rouge inspired 50th Birthday Celebration was held on October 28, 2015 here at modernized historic venue NOVA 535 in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. My long-time friend from the University of South Florida MBA program Olivier was approaching the big 50 and something proper needed to be done about it. He spends several months a year here in sunny St. Pete, “getting away” from his amazing home in the south of France. Olivier is a warm, friendly, worldly guy, traveling all over the globe, enjoying new people, places and experiences, always with a big smile on his face. Well for his 50th, we wanted to ensure that he was smiling from ear to ear, especially as Olivier made some pretty specific “suggestions’ as to how he wanted the night to go.

Dueling Pianos during Kevin’s 50th Birthday

Ten minutes into our first meeting, I knew this was going to be another epic NOVA 535 party! Jeanne was so laid back and easy to work with, a perfect client. A decision maker, who knows how to throw a great party, has the budget to produce it properly yet isn’t spending money on anything frivolous. Her concern is throwing her hubby Kevin an EPIC 50th! And that ladies and gentlemen, she did – Dueling Pianos during Kevin’s 50th Birthday Party!

Carolina Quinceañera

Carolina Quinceañera was held on Wednesday August 6th 2014 at NOVA 535 Unique Event Space in beautiful downtown St. Pete, Florida. I LOVE DTSP.

Carolina, her mom Yohanis and their entire family were a delight to work with. They wanted the grand NOVA 535 experience and discovered that weeknights were a great value, so they picked an available Wednesday in August, while school was out, and we began planning for our Carolina Quinceañera.

Bull Riding, BBQ and a Band

Kevlar’s 5th Birthday Hoedown

So when business owner (You Fit) and fellow Entrepreneur Christy Stross called again, for her older son Kevlar’s 5th Birthday party, I knew it’d be amazing. We hosted her and hubby Jason’s one year old son ‘s birthday here in February 2014. They are both typical Entrepreneurial business owners, as in they are eager to help, warm and welcoming, they are genuine and a lot of fun to be around. So of course they have a ton of friends to celebrate with. And once people experience the NOVA way, they wanna come back, so here we are again! Of course personal assistant extraordinaire Jessica was everywhere, making the magic happen.
