January 2013 “speakeasy” at Robust Downtown

Happy New Year!  We couldn’t have picked a better spot to kick off 2013 with our DesignSpeak crowd!

Robust’s new location, Downtown at the MX is fabulously done!  Not only do they offer an amazing selection of wines (and bubbles, see pic below) but they do so with such effortless hospitality that it’s hard to imagine they have only been open a few weeks.  Everyone from our servers to our event coordinator to the owner, Stanley, were so welcoming to our group.  Thank you Robust for being so wonderful, accommodating and treating us to super yummy appetizers!

Robust – Before DS madness…

Robust – After over 80 DS peeps arrived!

This month, we had an amazing architectural renderer as our surprise vendor raffle, Danae Designs & everyone enjoyed mingling in the space designed by SPACE Architects.  Check out a few pictures that I took trying to capture the ambience & energy of the event.  You really need to check it out for yourself.  Parking Tip: Valet at Embassy Suites for only $3 and it gets added to your Robust tab…can’t beat that downtown!

Being our first event this year, DesignSpeak popped open a few bottles of bubbly to toast!  Overall, a very encouraging start to 2013 and I’m very thankful for all the amazing people that continue to support our mission!  I’m looking forward to many more exciting events this year!

Cheers & we’ll see you in February!!

Yulespeak 2012 – Oh What A Night!

We had a blast celebrating the holidays and capping off a successful 2012 high atop the city at the offices of Interapptive!  Huge thank you to our sponsors, Integration Controls & Cosentino for helping us make this party one for the record books!

A beautiful space + amazing group of people = Yulespeak success!  Thank you to all involved!

My DesignSpeak Team, hard at “work”!!!

We had a lot packed into this holiday party with 3 raffle prizes, a presentation to recap the year and a side “fundraiser” for our Adopt A Family!  But all the guests wanted to do was fill out an application to Interapptive after getting lured by the beautiful interiors, complete with a fantastic view of the Arch!  I would definitely say the Arch was the star of the evening, as you can see below, people were lined up to get a photo op!

Our brand of “networking” has generated quite a following and we couldn’t be happier.  Even with all the holiday events that week, we had our best attendance yet at Yulespeak!  To all who came out, we so very much appreciate your support and couldn’t do it without you!   Also huge kudos to my DS team for springing into action and making everything run so smoothly!  You guys ROCK!!  Overall, we had a great time and we hope all of our guests did, too!

Another big shout out goes to Dana Diaz de Leon for beautifully capturing the event in photos!  Click the thumbnails below to enlarge the pictures.  We picked our favorites but you can view the full album here.

Thank you again to all involved & here’s to a fabulous 2013!!
