As we were coming closer to the end of the Sarasota Film Festival, the "Wrap Party" closed the event portion of the festival with an electric BANG! 

Kick ass bandmates and lovers Hank and Cupcakes rocked the stage at Sarasota Sky Bar. A very inclusive venue with every one in attendance for a final "Hooray".  

The entry price was $25, with sponsors like local brewing company, Big Top. Who was at attendance offering guests free crafted beers. Rae Grand was present totally killing it with live art in the dark, while capturing every moment in her work.  

The venue was remembrance to the mid 80s, colorful, eclectic vibe and offering versatility. It was totally a fascinating high-energy event. It was as though you walked into a twenty first century disco night. For a moment I recalled Webster Hall in NYC and how much this reminded me of my first nightclub experience. 

After Hank and Cupcakes totally brought the house down, we made our way to the exit. My team and I were beat and tired after a long week of documenting our experiences. Before we could make it to the door, lo and behold Aisha Tyler calls out to us. 

Taken off guard by her appreciation for us and embrace, we were honored. We praised her for her hard work and were honored to receive encouraging words of hope and perseverance to young entrepreneurs like ourselves, who are trying to manifest our dreams within our own crafts.  

We bumped into a few more good vibrations before leaving. After such an incredible night ending on a positive note, I was happy to say "That's a Wrap" !
