[RECAP] Awesome Mix Dance Party at The Barbary 4/29

“Keep your electric eye on me babe, put your ray gun to my head…”

Hard to believe it’s been almost two weeks since we held our cosplay, music and dancing tribute to Guardians of the Galaxy, and with the new film out in theaters it’s time to reflect on the event with the help of local nightlife photography genius Influence. Thanks again to everyone who made this endeavor such a super fun success! Cosplay goddess and hostess extraordinaire Maki Roll, everyone at The Barbary, co-promoter Mario of Atomic City Comics, DJ John D, Influence for the awesome pictures, our amazingly talented friends Sarah, Owen and Kerri and Jay for helping with the flier and decorations, Marvel Studios, Insomnia Cookies, PAWS, and all the gracious and generous local businesses that donated raffle prizes, and of course everyone in attendance, especially those who crafted outstanding costumes!

If you missed out on this one don’t fret, there’s always more in the pipeline. Keep your eyes here and on our social media accounts for news on more great upcoming events!
