Chocolates + Cowboys : It's a C&C Party Factory
Mar 19 | 8 PM | Studio 700 | $10 advance / $15-$25 sliding scale at door
What do Chocolates and Cowboys/girls have in common? Well they're both sexy, they both hang out in bars, they're both fun to lick... And they're both fabulous themes for a raging party! So buckle your chaps, throw on your stetson, pull on your boots and come on down to this year's In the House Festival fundraiser.
There will be music, dancing, burlesque, can can dance, chocolate fountains, chocolate treats, chocolate cocktails. There will blackjack, shoot-outs and maybe some tar and feathering (I mean chocolate and feathering). There will be silent auctions, 50/50 draws and candygrams. You don’t want to miss it! Ride ‘em cowboy!
“By changing the way we think, we change the way we act, thereby creating the transformation that we seek”. But the way we think is based in the mental models we have - the way we look at the world. Join the David Suzuki Foundation (and facilitator HoneyBee Steve!) for a transformative Green Café, where we will be pushing to understand the structures and mental models that underlay our assumptions about the environment. As a special treat graphic facilitator Stina Brown will animate this highly interactive and provocative discussion for members of employee green teams, business owners and all individuals committed to sustainable workplace practice!
