The first public party that Anjali and I threw was a New Year’s Eve party in Portland in 2000 at a space called the Medicine Hat. It was a sold-out, raucous, crazy time that featured nudity and lots of people getting kicked out for illicit activity. This year’s party at the Bossanova Ballroom marks our 13th anniversary as dance floor instigators. Thanks for so many years of amazing support, Portland. Our last two New Year’s parties at the Bossanova have been the biggest parties we have ever thrown, and we are aiming even higher this year.
