What a day! I worked with Kevin for the past 15 months only, but probably know him better than some people who have been in the building with him for more than 15 years. When you are in a small room together for 5 hours a day, just the two of you, it is real tough not to get close...and saying goodbye was one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do in my career.
Alas, the day was not about me. It was about Kevin and I did my best to pull in all of those who have been instrumental and important in his career and give him a last show that he would never forget. From his former co-hosts to his closest friends, from our pals in the local media to our colleagues, so many people showed up to wish the wonderful Kevin all the best in his new chapter!
Here are just a few highlights...
Brian from Exit 9 Wine and Liquor Warehouse creates a special going away cocktail based on Kevin's tastes! It's called the "Peanut Butter Surprise," but I prefer the, "Don't Go Kev!"
Here's the recipe:
2 oz Peanut Butter Screwball Whisky, 2 oz Godiva Chocolate Liquor, 2 oz heavy cream, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, peanut butter syrup
-Fill shaker with ice
-Add Screwball, Godiva and heavy cream and shake
-Pour into glasses and top with whipped cream and the two syrups
-Garnish with a peanut butter cup!
One final break as Kevin & Tracy...
