Interactive Cocktail Party Hosted by Kristi Yamaguchi and Alpine Lace Deli Cheese – A Recap

Last week I attended a really fun event in New York City.  Remember I wrote a post a few weeks ago about the best life ingredients to fuel an active life?  Well, Alpine lace invited me and several other bloggers to dine, dance and discover with Kristi Yamaguchi. I attended an interactive Cocktail party where I was able to Dine, Dance and Discover with Kristi Yamaguchi.

Kristi kicked off the event by talking about life balance.

She then invited us to check out 3 different discovery stations. The first station we visited was the life ingredients station.  Kristi shared her life ingredients and invited us all to share our own life ingredients.  She then took her time to speak to each one of us at length about our life ingredients.  She was very personable.

At this station, we all shared our #LifeIngredients.  These are Kristi Yamaguchi's Life Ingredients.

These are my #LifeIngredients.

At the second station, we met with an Alpine Lace test kitchen expert who shared a variety of wine and food pairings with Alpine Lace Swiss cheese.  She suggested a few pairings, but stressed that pairings are a very personal choice and that you can never go wrong with your pairings.

At this station we learned about how to make the perfect pairings with Alpine Lace Swiss cheese

We also learned about the perfect wine pairings.

The third and final station was the Rumba station.  At this station, two professional dancers taught us how to do the basic box step.  It was intimidating at first, but after doing it a few times, I picked it up pretty quickly.  It was pretty fun! Thank you to Alpine Lace for again sponsoring this post and treating me to a wonderful evening out.

We learned to Rumba at this station.

Our dance instructors were amazing.
