This was a good one! A big party on the Dutch barge down beside the waterfront hall, the night was rockin, with a real speakeasy feel to it with the whole bring your own vibe, the bizarre venue and the magic atmosphere. It took some setting up, but once it was all sorted, the plan, as they say, really came together, and we loved it! Some Photos from the shindig:
