No stranger to Orlando (because she's lived here most of her life) Jackie Lewin (BlueLaLa Entertainment) is the former Business Manager and cameo performer extraordinaire of The Venue. Jackie has extensive background in Restaurant Management and is happy to be using that Masters Degree on the daily as her world's collide here in the HÄOS. If you see Jackie with one arm up that certainly means she is having a good time and a step touch dance move will soon follow! Meet the one that holds us all together Jackie Lewin.
Meet the Chef. We are more than honored to welcome Chef Michael Magonigle (say that 3 times) aka "Princess" to the HÄOS! No stranger to food, you might know him from a few Orlando favorites Kres and Hue. Not only will Chef Michael be cooking up the daaaliciousness on the daily, but is the curator of Tiara "The Brunch" where he combines his Latin roots of Miami, Southern upbringing in Gainesville and the Island Culture of Hawaii with his exclusive style of fusion foods.
Chef Michael is a rock star in the kitchen (and right now is very embarrassed and probably stopped reading this and is dancing around to Blondie while rebuilding things with powertools) Hard Facts here in the HÄOS!
This Culinary Artist joins us making delicious and fun food while bringing a new level of creativity to your table. From Kres, Hue, Buca and Hot Olives he is no stranger to the kitchen and his recent endeavor as a Private Chef has given him room to explore his talents and create even more daaalicious foods. And he has a great taste in trucks. He's a Chevy guy and is pretty impressive with his power tools! We are so happy to have Chef Andrew in the HÄOS!

(okay I know we are the lucky ones because he is so versatile, but we won't discuss that here lol) Welcome to the Team Christian Williams.
