Thanks to everyone who made it out to the FYI studio for our 6th Birthday last night in NYC. Despite battling the first snow storm of the season, the crowd enjoyed presentations from Ted & Jonathan of Limebits, Michael from Aviary, Spot of Electric Sheep and an fantastic performance by Sarah Elizabeth Foster.

Happy Birthday may or may not have been sung, and many free beers were consumed. Check out Ben Sisto’s free photos of the evening if you want to see more proof.

Special thanks goes to everyone who helped setup and break down, and especially to For Your Imagination for supplying their awesome studio space in the face of a intimidating RSVP list.

Most importantly, please take a minute to fill out our quick survey so we can solicit feedback about our Salons. You can also use the survey to give us your e-mail address so we can let you know about future events.
