A crazy night at Palihouse Friday to kick off the long holiday weekend!

At first, it looked like an early night--everyone out of town or staying home. There were plans to shut the bar down a little early.

Then all of a sudden a good crowd settled in and the next thing we knew, the PARTY WAS ON!

Rounds of Corzo Tequila were flowing and Jun was mixing up the late night dance recipes. A really fun, unexpected night that just erupted of its own free will. A perfect kick-start and mood reliever for a weekend of fun holiday bbqs.
