I've been waiting a really long time to do this. Anyone who knows me, knows that K-Pop is my genre of choice, and hosting a K-Pop Club Night has been a goal of mine for a while. Dreams finally came true last month when we hosted the final NIGHTFALL at Shooters.
Last month we hosted the first themed International Party since The International Party BLACK back in 2019. This event was a homage to the decade of my formative years, the 2000s.
It looks like we're in the season of event anniversaries! This month marks the fourth year of Sunday Pick Me Up!
Can you believe it's been 1 whole year of SWFCC International Futsal?? A big shoutout to all of our dedicated participants for attending these events and building this vibrant community.
We've been running The International Party since 2018, and to this day it's still one of the most popular events in the city. I think that a lot of the reason why it's been so successful over the years is because we're always trying to improve. Over the last few months, we've been making incremental changes to make TIP stand out way above the rest. This month, TIP's Dance Showcase proved that we create experiences at our events that few others can match.
Aloha and mahalo! Last Wednesday we hosted our first event with Courtyard by Marriott, Hawaiian Luau in The Lounge. The event served as one of the most unique and exciting productions we've been involved with this year, all taking place within the beautiful environs of the Courtyard.
I've been in London for the last two weeks so I've been unable to host or attend any events for most of July, but thanks to FCC Futsal we were still able to host the monthly SWFCC International Futsal kick-about.
On Saturday we hosted a collab party with our friends at Pop Up Palooza, The International Party Plus. We knew we really wanted to push what we were capable of so we pulled out all the stops and I think we threw the best event of the year so far. I'm not kidding, this party was next level, totally off the chain, a real step up.
It took three months but FINALLY we managed to host the elusive Small World Summer BBQ, and it coincided with my birthday! It's been five years since we last hosted a BBQ and it was so good to be out in the sunshine with some incredible food provided by the experts at Lia's Kitchen.
This month, Chatterbox ended up taking place on the same day as Sunday Pick Me Up, which struck me as an opportunity! As a special promotion, Sunday Pick Me Up attendees were able to attend Chatterbox for FREE! This populated the event with a bunch of Eco-Heroes and gave them the opportunity to experience one of our most popular events for the first time.
