    at the super sexy Downtown Projects Venue:

    Yes, this party is going to be ALL kinds of Vegas-style!

     It's centrally located just off of Las Vegas Blvd. and Ogden.

    They have this area called "The Backyard" where we will be playing ping-pong, shuffleboard, twister, four-square, and more...while eating s'mores from campfires, drinking mocktails from bartenders, and dancing our booties off to a live DJ! Also, since it's so close to Halloween, we will have a Killer Costume Party and plenty more killer activities for adults and kids alike. 

    They even have this amazing lounge area called "The Living Room" for those of you who'd like to play pool, imbibe, and generally chill awhile.
