Cardboard Fort Night is what it sounds like! People come and make cardboard forts while drinking beer. We provide huge swaths of cardboard, duct tape, magic markers, and scissors. A DJ plays wonderfully inspiring fort-building music! When people arrive, they are invited to start a new fort or to join a fort currently being built!

This is a great opportunity for people to mix and mingle. After a couple hours of intensive fort-building, we will have a celebrity judge walk around! The judge will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes to the best forts of the night. Almost like at a science fair. (Criteria and prizes to be decided.)

Then, after the awards and the applause and the photo-taking comes the Great Smashening of the Forts! Yes, at the end of the night everyone smashes all the forts into dust and helps clean up. (We will have to pick a venue with a dumpster.) And then we all go home, having made new forts, but more importantly, new friends.

      Finally, one other thing – I run a bunch of charming and quirky events, and one is coming up this Saturday night! It’s a slowdance, where we play all slow songs all night long. Here is the event page for that:
