Prepare to do the Hippopotamus Polka this Saturday night.
It’s past midnight on Friday. Tomorrow, Saturday, is the Big Day – the launch party for Coilhouse, Issue 1 here in LA. Every muscle aches from scrubbing, sweeping, lifting, polishing, arranging. If my co-editors are awake, most likely they’re like me: an exhausted bundle of nerves, awaiting a night that we’ll all remember for the rest of our lives.
As much as tomorrow’s party is for us to celebrate finishing Issue 1, at its heart, it’s really a party for you, dear readers. We built you guys a photo booth that looks like a set from the kind of film we’d blog about. There are special-made bottles of Coilhouse-flavored wine. On the stage, a theremin awaits.
We’ll be short on blog posts this weekend as we run around making last-minute preparations, but we did want to answer some common questions that have popped up under various posts in the past week.
Is there a cover charge for the launch party?
Nope, it’s free. Wine/cheese/fruit/sweets will be free, too. There will be a charge for hard liquor, though.
Will magazines be sold at the launch party?
Yes – we’ll be able to take credit cards (note: the bar will only take cash).
I can’t make it to the party. Boo! How will I be able to get an issue of Coilhouse?
It will soon be available to buy here on this site, and we’ll ship to anywhere in the world. It will also be in stores, but we don’t have the full list of store locations yet.
Very, very soon, all will be revealed! There are a lot of surprises ahead – like the fact that there are actually two different versions of the magazine (and no, it’s not an alternate cover). But more about that later. For now, it’s party time.
Hope to see many of you tomorrow. Dress in your finest, bring friends, and let this be our treat!
122 Glendale Blvd. LA, 90026.
Party starts: 8:00.
