This past Thursday, Howard Theatre graciously allowed us to take over their gorgeous, newly renovated space and host a messy, awesome, hilarious party for those of you who felt that balloon drops, pint-sized bingo babes, disco goddesses, giant eyeballs, glow necklaces, and all sorts of indescribable stuff in between made for a good night.

I know you’re here for the photos (and trust me: these photos are WELL WORTH scrolling through) but first as always, a THANK YOU ROLL by us:

  • Thank you to THE UNDERGROUND REBEL BINGO CLUB for coming down
  • Thank you to Nancy Whang, Bit Funk, Gavin Holland and Ted Dancin’ for providing the (exceptionally) hot jams throughout
  • Thank you to ALL OF YOU for showing up super game, wearing costumes and being ready to bingo and dance and draw on each others faces
  • Thank you to Katie Balloons for that magical balloon drop, decor, and general weirdness
  • Thank you to our burlesque dancers and contortionist for being perfect window dressing
  • Thank you to our magical art director Erik Loften for making that sick video you saw rolling throughout
  • Thank you to Howard Theatre for being amazing hosts
  • Thank you to our sponsors for the evening: Stella Artois and Kimpton Hotels
  • Thank you to our amazing photo staff for capturing it all and to our intern/helping core for making things run smoothly.
  • Lets do it all again soon (more party announcements coming your way this week so be on the look out)

AND NOW-for what you’ve been waiting for:
