God Save The Queen - openingAlthough we have been at 236 East Pender since May, when IOU opened, last Friday was when we finally got to show off the newly-completed gallery, and the new floors and paint and lights in the rest of the building. Call it our grand opening; coinciding with SWARM, and of course the opening of God Save The Queen, this was an opportunity to celebrate the Pitt’s resurgence with music, dancing, and people — a lot of people.

Thanks to our DJs: Corry Wyngaarden, Collin Feigle, and DJ Stuffed Shirt in the downstairs “chill room”, and upstairs dance sets by Fiona Bowie, Eli Bornowsky, and an unexpected last-minute appearance by Skookum Sound System. Thanks to all of them, and to our many volunteers, and to 221A, our joint-venture partner in the 236 project. Thanks also to all of you for coming out!

Remember the 236 project still has some distance to go before we can say it is done — we really appreciate those donations that keep coming in, and you can pitch in at any time.

Watch for more announcements: we have a lot more planned this year. In the meantime, thanks again for being part of a really great launch.
