Practice NYE Party Recap

We’ve finally floated down from cloud nine after our 14th annual Practice New Year’s Eve Party earlier this month.

What a massively fun event that proved why our community is absolutely the best bunch of people! The party of the year more than lived up to its billing!

Special thanks to Jen Adams, Nick Maimer and Matt Bragg at the Lounge at the End of the Universe Bar and Toni Hagen of Gem Center for the Arts for hosting the soiree and being so accommodating.

Shouts out to the 2417 Experience for its immersive and interactive art installations. Partygoers were raving about each room all night! Artists include: Jessica Miceli Dodd (photo booth room), Jen Adams, Alec De Dochas, Casey Gurr, Katya Ivanova, Susan Lowman Thomas, Helen McGill, Danielle Mitten, Jessica Nebeker, Candace Rood, Scott Schmader, Jeremy Shoemaker, Angela Stout, Jane Tharpe and The Colossal Collective.

Kudos to Regular Sounds, Boise Rockeoke, Starbelly Dancers and CoreVette Dance Collective for gracing the stage and rocking every face in the place. (And Valiant Productions for making them all sound awesome.)

Can’t forget our appreciation to Ashley Dreyfus for providing wonderful poster art for the event.

Gratitude to Wepa! Cuisine, Ramen Sho Food Truck and artist Lupe Galvan for setting up shop on-site.

Plus, thanks to North End Nursery for donating a live Christmas tree for raffle.

Finally, Practice NYE wouldn’t have been possible without our stupendous sponsors: Boise Brewing, First Interstate Bank, Indian Creek Winery and Lounge at the End of the Universe.
