Create Denver Expo VIP Party
The esteemed Ivyy Goldberg, Esq. interviewed the venerable Angora Holly Polo of The Donnybrook Writing Academy about one of the many MANY VIP parties she attends. This particular party occured for the Create Denver Expo, wherein creative folks meet and create and such. Furthermore, this particular VIP Party occurred at the VIP building The Spire, where VIPs meet to VIP around, and live and such.
Ivyy: Hi Angora, darling! Tell me about the Create Denver VIP Party at The Spire. Were there cocktails?
Angora: Of course, Ivyy dear! I try not to go anywhere I can’t find complimentary cocktails. They had wine by the bucketful, and a special microbrew beer called Catalyst that was brewed special by the Wynkoop Brewing Company for the Create Denver Expo! The bartender seemed a little more drunk every time we went back for a fill-up, which resulted in her pouring us a larger and larger amount of wine with each subsequent trip. I am not feeling so well today.
What was your favorite part of the party?
Well, besides the cocktails, Create Denver had this artpiece called Sightline, curated by Ivar Zeile and Ryan Pattie of Plus Gallery- it was this New Media LED light show on the side of a building, which was really cool. I think there were a bunch of artists who did film/multimedia thingys to contribute to this art piece, and although I forget the names of all the artists, I know that one of them was named Milton Melvin Croissant III, I remember thinking the name sounded very Donnybrook.
It was supposed to go with music, which would have been cooler, but to hear the music required that one go outside, and as this is Denver, it was like 45 degrees and rainy so we didn’t go outside.
Also, when we got there they had people playing some sort of pong-like video game that was projected onto the side of the building, which was really cool. Lights on sides of buildings are just generally cool, ya know?
What about the location?
The party was on the 9th floor of The Spire, which is also I think where the pool and hot tub are located. (Don’t worry, I’m working on getting Donnybrook permanent VIP passes to this floor.) On the way out after the party we stopped in the lobby, and we were, like, playing on this weird yin-yang circular sofa chair they have there. Jake and I were sitting on the sofa chair, and Father Guido was pushing us in circles while we giggled like schoolgirls (much wine, remember). A silver fox who obviously lived at The Spire and was much cooler than us walked in at this particular moment, rolled his eyes at us, and kept on moving. I can’t say I blame him.
