The past few weeks have gone by so quickly, they're such a blur!! We booked a bunch of special events to help get us through what I thought was going to be a slower winter season. But it turns out this winter hasn't been so bad at all! We have some really great customers that come in on a regular basis and help make our nights much more fun! So doing events on top of that is just the icing on the cake!
The Cambodia fundraiser was absolutely amazing. We were packed to the gills on a random Tuesday night in the winter - I'll take it! We met so many great people and the organizers exceeded their goal of $1,000 to raise almost $1,700! We got some really cool pieces of art for our walls, too!
We booked a private birthday party for Superbowl Sunday, too. It was our friend Fred's birthday and him and his wife, Allison, threw a great party. They live in the neighborhood and invited a lot of their neighbors - so we got to meet even more great people! And Fred was so great, he was like a spokesman for Hall of Records, explaining to every guest that came in what we do and how we have open turntables on Fridays.
The Nervous Breakdown reading night was a really big hit, too! There were about six short story readers with a DJ playing in between stories. It made for a really fun, packed Sunday night! I would love to make it a regular thing at our store!
This coming Saturday we have another Birthday party dance party! Two weeks ago we had a combo Latin Night and three birthday parties and it made for the busiest Saturday we've ever had. I'm looking forward to trying to beat it this week!!
Oh, and Chooselocal.org did a really amazing website for our store! They put up a really cool 360 degree video of what Hall of Records looks like from the inside!
