    Cool junior's party

    Hello,

    I'd like to know if the use of the possessive "'s" is correct in the following case. Can you help me?

    (The company I used to work for is called "Junior". Some people were laid off last year -me included. All those people organised a party one year later in order to see one another again.)

    Can I say: "Last week-end, I went to Junior's party". Would it be better to say "Last week-end, I went to Junior party."

    Thanks a lot for your help.
    Will

    If it's the name of the company then I would say "Junior" - no possessive, but I would add the article:

    Last week I went to the Junior party.
