417 Magazine {The List Party}

This event is my most favorite thing I work on every year. We always convert an unusual space (think airport lobby, bank, or in this case a automotive shop) into a party. I love getting to put my problem solving and creative juices to work. This year we took over Rick's Automotive and wowed the crowd b/c the space was completely transformed. We used one of the lifts and constructed a stage that we had elevated above the party as the Kilgore Sisters serenaded the party-goers. Another of the lifts was converted into a working bar. All of the other lifts were transformed into floating tables with our favorite 417-land restaurants serving yummy appetizers. No one believed it is actually a working shop that is open for business! We only had to shut it down for one day. Today it is all back up and running like we were never there.
