It’s hard to believe that today is our last Monday of the summer. Marshall told us on the first day of the summer program that it would fly by, and he could not have been more correct. In just nine weeks I have learned so much, made incredible friends and already feel like I am a part of the Bilzin Sumberg family. We have had countless delicious lunches, fun happy hours and exciting social events. All of these activities made our summer in the magic city very special and helped us get to know the associates and partners so well. Two of my favorite events happened this weekend.
On Friday evening Mitch Widom took the litigation department to dinner and cocktails at Russo’s followed by opening night of Mary Poppins at the Susan Katz Theater. We went to see the show because our very own Shalia starred as Mary! Not only is Shalia a hardworking and awesome litigation associate, but she proved on stage how incredibly talented she is! I love that so many people in the department rallied together to show their support. We also felt like a VIP after the show when we got to take pictures on stage with Mary Poppins herself!
On Sunday, Marshall organized a delicious brunch — or shall I say feast — for the summer associates. We went to the beautiful Cecconi’s in South Beach. Brunch was a lavish buffet stocked with everything you could imagine. Some of the group favorites were the make your own omelet stand, oysters, cheeses, pastas, risottos, and of course the decadent desserts. After lots of laughs, memories made and 2-4 plates each, it was safe to say we were all so full we could roll home!
This weekend was a wonderful beginning to the end, and a solid reminder of what makes Bilzin Sumberg such an exceptional place to work!
