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.
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.
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.
On Friday we hosted our second NIGHTFALL club night in the recently converted back room of Shooters. This event is held on a Friday night, which can be a tricky night for some... But I can tell you for sure, NIGHTFALL is worth a hangover on a Saturday morning.
On Sunday we hosted our first Mixer event, which was an offshoot of one of the Chatterbox activities we tried a few months ago. This event was designed to get participants mingling with as many new people as possible!
Last Sunday we hosted another edition of our Chatterbox Language Exchange at Shooters! This month we returned to our regular structure after last month's successful experiment, but we decided to keep the energy levels high with a music-themed gathering.
Last Sunday I tried something a little different with Chatterbox. I'd gotten some feedback from regular attendees that they'd like more opportunities to move around and meet new people, so I decided to test out a new system, something more like a language 'mixer' than a language exchange. I could not have anticipated just how effective this would be!
This month at Chatterbox Language Exchange, we decided to look at film and cinema! Earlier this month was the Oscars, and everyone seemed to be talking about Everything, Everywhere All at Once, so I thought it would be a good opportunity for everyone to not only talk about the Oscar winners, but also their favourite films and why they liked them.
Chatterbox Language Exchange returned for the first time in 2023, and after multiple iterations of the event's activities, I think we've finally settled on a permanent structure for all of the events going forward!
Shooters Trivia Night last Thursday was an amazing start to the year! With over 40 attendees, I was thrilled to see such a great turnout and I'm so glad that 2023 is already shaping up to be a big hit.
