What a memorable night. We filled the place to the brim, with about 70 guests and standing room only for much of the evening. (We'll remember to add extra seating for future events!) Thank you to everyone who came out, to YunCai Cafe for hosting us in their really cozy and beautiful spot, and for Lulu who arranged all the logistics and helped us market.
