Borsheims Cocktail Party Goes Worldwide!

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

We love that the appeal of Berkshire Hathaway is universal. We talked with shareholders last night from all over the world as they arrived in Omaha to take part in Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

In addition to the shareholders who travel from near and far, we also have members of the media who send stories back to their homes for everyone interested in seeing what Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend is all about. And we’ve definitely seen an increase in media from other countries over the past several years – particularly in media from China and India.

One of those crews last night had a great opportunity to chat with Borsheims CEO Karen Goracke from the middle of the shareholder cocktail party. Watch the interview below to see what Karen tells Berkshire Hathaway shareholders and fans in India via Economic Times Now’s Tanvir Gill.

Our local crews love to cover the festivities, too! You can watch the coverage from the local ABC affiliate by clicking here, the CBS affiliate by clicking here, and the NBC affiliate by clicking here.


Caterer prepares 25,000 meatballs for the “Biggest Cocktail Party in Nebraska”

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

For years, we have used Abraham catering to provide the food at Borsheims during the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend cocktail party and the Sunday shareholder brunch.

They are one of the only caterers around who can handle this big of a crowd, and they always do a fabulous job.

In this morning’s Omaha World Herald, you can read all about Abraham catering prepares for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend.

It’s a fun story. One filled with food and statistics (I love both things!). Here’s a sampling from writer Sarah Baker Hansen:
“By the time Major and his staff arrive at Borshiems today they will have prepped 2,000 pounds of roast beef — cooked from 100 rounds of meat from Omaha Steaks — to be sliced to-order and served as sandwiches on 15,000 cocktail buns. They’ll bring 1,000 pounds of prettily arranged fresh fruit along with 800 pounds of fresh vegetables to be dipped in 300 pounds of Ranch dressing. One thousand pounds of cheese will be paired with 28 cases of crackers.” – Omaha World Herald
You want to know the truth? I have never eaten the food – we are too busy to eat at Borsheims. But all the shareholders report back that it is delicious. And the fact that there is basically no food left over by the end of both parties confirms that.

Thanks to the Omaha World Herald for such a great profile of Abraham catering!

Some of the local tv crews were in yesterday, too, to see what we have for Berkshire Hathaway shareholders to buy and take home with them.

The local CBS affiliate, KMTV, checked out some of our big rings.

The local NBC affiliate, WOWT, previewed the weekend with a story about our Warren Buffett signed diamonds. They also had a fun look at all the private airplanes coming into town and some shareholders finding a place to stay through airbnb.

As these local news stories confirm – we are ready for you, shareholders!

We were so fortunate to have Warren Buffett selling jewelry at Borsheims yesterday (and playing table tennis and bridge, too)!

We are also grateful for the media who comes to cover him every year.

Here are two stories from local crews:

Hello Weekenders,

Adrienne Fey Interviewed by KETVAs the big event draws near, a lot of TV camera crews have been dropping by Borsheims and we have been fielding a lot of questions about the coming event. This year we are expecting around 40,000 visitors for the Berkshire Meeting. And that is generating a lot of excitement!

So far we have been lucky enough to talk with three of the main TV stations in Omaha: KPTM, KETV and KMTV (click on the links to see their stories). We have also been working on interviews with many newspapers, magazines and other media outlets. We are expecting a lot more cameras to be here over the weekend. So, get ready for your close-up shareholders!

See you soon,

Bill, the blogger
