And on a more personal note...this Saturday night we celebrated Mitra's birthday! Mitra is our Director of Operations and basically my right arm, left arm, right leg...you get the point :) She decided to hold the festivities at a fairly new place in town, calledHowl at the Moon,a dueling piano bar. Mitra reserved 4 tables right up front, which was a good idea because the place got packed! We had such a blast! The venue was fantastic and the piano players really put on a good show. So if you're looking for a place to have your next birthday bash or a company party...I would highly recommend Howl! They'll also have a table at our Signature Event, so drop by and say hello.
