A Special Night deserves...

A special thanks to everyone who attended the anniversary show on Saturday. We had an amazing performance on the main stage by Ninja Academy who recently played my favorite Brewery in Grand Rapids, Founder's.
The DJ booth in the back drew more attention than normal with Quangstah's dueling Gameboys and DJ Kronick. Always a good time.
We sold amazing art to amazing people and the turnout was spectacular. We poured the honey on thick this month and it was a good thing because there was plenty to share it with.
Also, thanks to all the artists and residents who participated in the potluck. The food was delicious, especially Laura Diamond's guacamole. OhMyGod.

It was divine. All of it. The whole evening. Let the honey flow.
