The Postgreen Homes launch party was a great success despite the signs of imminent disaster that at times proceeded it. We were happy to see so many of you out there among the hundreds of people that showed up to drink our beer, eat our food and test drive the new website, www.postgreenhomes.com. If you couldn’t make it out, you can try the site now in the comfort of your own home/office. Let us know what you think in the comments.
Not everyone came to the party just to see us. There was also a ton of interest in the fantastic art show put together by four of our Philly favorites.
Marie DesMarais (aka Marie Darling, aka my wife)
and John Olivieri
If you didn’t get to see the show, you can still swing by 2424 York (map) this week and check out the art. If you get there early enough in the week, you might get to see our displays still up as well. Those of you interested in knowing more about these artists, stay tuned. Over the next couple weeks I will be doing short profiles of all the artists who have helped us out with their work.
This party wouldn’t have come off without some great help from a number of people including:
- Memphis Taproom offering Leigh’s professional beer pouring and some excellent meat and cheese platters
- Feast Your Eyes for providing humus, vegetables and biodegradable cups all at the last minute,
- 2424 York Studios for the amazing space,
- Kristin Langford for providing the perfect music,
- Stokes Group for handling all the sales details,
- Nimblelight for their brilliant web design,
- ISA for going above and beyond,
- and all of our Partners for helping make the projects themselves possible.
I would also like to give a big thanks to our interns, Megan, Victoria, Mike and Wes. Megan and Victoria were instrumental in designing the party space and helping pull together our slideshow and display materials. Mike designed and built our displays and generally ran around like a crazy person during the event. Wes is behind a whole lot of the pretty stuff on the website itself, and we would have never gotten it together on time without him.
Well, I probably forgot to thank someone but this seems like a lengthy enough wrap up for now. If you came to the party or have tried the site, give us your impressions in the comments. We will have more pictures up soon on our Flickr site so keep an eye on that as well. Thanks again to all who came and for those who couldn’t due to distance, maybe we will have a party in your city one day.
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
