Event attendees enjoyed flavorful smoked brisket, chicken and turkey, street tacos with their choice of chicken or beef fajita meat or carnitas.  On the patio, guests enjoyed a tasty guacamole bar made to order with a variety of delicious options, and of course, Goode Co.’s delicious FAMOUS pecan pie!  The evening was complete with Goode Co.’s cocktail options of margaritas or sangria – frozen or on the rocks (delish).

O&GA’s Vice-Executive Ambassador, Sherry Grantham, welcomed all attendees and shared information about the organization and upcoming events, and Shannon Smith, Goode Co.’s Private Event Coordinator, gave a wonderful overview of all the fantastic services and options Goode Co. has to offer. 

A large number of new faces were in attendance creating excellent opportunities for building new relationships, and guests had the opportunity to take advantage of Goode Co.’s beautiful patio area that connects both restaurants and can cater to an event of over 100 people!
