partywithapurpose

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen of the internet, how are you doing?  You feel like partying?  Yeah, us neither.

For us, starting Damn Good Shindig has been a great bringer-of-joy this year, and we’ve loved every minute. But… people all over the world are suffering, struggling against corrupt governments, human rights violations, this Us vs. Them mentality, this pointing fingers at someone to blame – this unhappiness and spreading of hate… and for the people of the USA, it all culminated with the election on November 8th.

Hogwarts a Homecoming

There is nothing that screams Fall in Fandom like owls whizzing through the air delivering Hogwarts letters. Or is it the sound of toads singing of toil and trouble, or perhaps the taste of warm Butterbeer shared amongst friends?  Whichever way, we knew that with Halloween arriving, our Fall Shindig just had to be the Harry Potter party we’ve always wanted.

Aloha to Old Age: Inspiration for a Vintage Tiki Party

Tiki Inspiration Cover

Back in January, Ellie was sitting at dinner listening to her boyfriend Max fret about turning 30.  Max, feeling as if the act of leaving your 20s behind immediately propels you straight to the frailty of old age (and therefore impending death), described how his life would be at age 30:  “Life is basically over, I’ll be wearing my Hawaiian print shirts, drinking tropical drinks and doing the congo as long as my hips can stand it.”  This absurd statement was the birth of our next Damn Good Shindig: The Vintage Tiki Party.
