If you’ve been around CMBC at all, you probably know Randi. Her picture is EVERYWHERE. She’s our favorite model, and not only because of her winning personality and smile. It’s because she’s awesome.
After high school, she went to West Virginia University — which, at the time, was the nation’s #1 party school. So… she’s kind of the perfect person to be our Chief Celebrations Officer.
Now, she runs all of our events, managing a three-person Events team and organizing killer festivals through the New Jersey and Pennsylvania area. And she’s the right person for it — with her positive attitude and attention to detail, Randi is the person you want throwing your party.
So, without further ado… say hello to Randi Friel!
THE GREATEST ADVENTURE I EVER HAD WAS… College, at West Virginia University — does it count if I can’t remember most nights, though? I spent some time in Hawaii, that was awesome.
MY FAVORITE HOBBY IS… Cooking! I almost went to culinary school in Switzerland after college, until I realized I would have to work almost every night, weekend, and holiday.
THE LAST TIME I LAUGHED UNTIL I CRIED WAS… Last month at GABF. People should not eat lollipops in public.
THE SUPERPOWER I’D LIKE TO HAVE IS… Teleportation. I’m not a fan of flying. It’s almost 2018, someone get on it.
MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME IS… Happy Gilmore because I like to laugh and Pretty Woman because who doesn’t like a comeback.
MY FAVORITE CARTOON IS… Bob’s Burgers
THE BEST PICKUP LINE I EVER HEARD WAS… “Do I make you randy?” (eye roll) I never heard a pick up line that made me want to hold a conversation with a person.
THE MOST FAMOUS PERSON I’VE EVER MET WAS… A family member dated Bernie Parent, so I got to know him pretty well, and I met a handful of ex-Flyers players through him.
MY BIGGEST PET PEEVE IS… People with no table manners. If you chew with your mouth open, we will never be friends.
THE SPORTS TEAMS I FOLLOW ARE… WVU football and the Flyers
THE BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS… “Drive fast and take chances.” — Justin Vitti
I WAS DRAWN TO CMBC BECAUSE… Courtney Rosenberg
IF I HAD TO NAME A CMBC BEER TOMORROW, I WOULD CALL IT… Randi M Friel
MY FAVORITE BAND IS… SOJA. They play real music with real instruments unlike today’s noise that uses electronics and autotune.
MY KARAOKE SONG IS… always picked for others to sing. The Marketing Team told me I wasn’t allowed to sing.
I LOVE WORKING AT CMBC BECAUSE… Courtney Rosenberg
IF I WERE A CMBC BEER, I WOULD BE… I asked my boyfriend, Matt, this question and he said, “The Bog because you’re so sweet.” I have a hunch he’s lying, though. So, I’m gonna go with Foreshore Shandy because Courtney Rosenberg. (Ya know, it’s her beer and I love her. Sorry, Matt!)
