The Left-Over Recap (November 27, 2009)

Friends and family traveled from far and near for our annual post bird day romp aka The Left-Over. If you’ve had the pleasure of attending any of our one-off events, you’ve come to learn that these are some of the most fun Do-Over’s to experience. Well, this year’s Left-Over definitely lived up to those expectations. With each passing season, the bar itself takes on a new life and identity of its own. Attendees were treated to the next phase of Cranes, which included a remodeled outside patio giving it a Brooklyn-esque feel. As for the party itself, it was a nonstop rug cutting affair with $mall Change making his annual pilgrimage from NYC to get down alongside fellow New Yorker JT Donaldson, KCRW’s Jeremy Sole and Rhettmatic featuring Eric Bobo on percussion who had the crowd in a dancing frenzy (Rhett even made a cameo on percussion!).

Save The Date: Friday, January 1st. The New-Over.

If you attended our first ever New Years Day party last year, you know it’s not worth missing. That was probably our craziest party all year and in the history of Do-Over. This year we will top it bigger and bigger.

Whatcha’ Wanna New?

The Boo-Over Recap (November 1, 2009)

As always, The Boo-Over jumped off heavy this past Sunday as we closed out our regular Sunday series. Big thanks to everyone participating by dressing up, even though it was a day following Halloween. Some amazing costumes and amazing times made for a very memorable edition. Big big ups to all of the special guests who kept the soundtrack unique throughout the course of the day. A-Trak, Fashen, annual regular The Gaslamp Killer and a very special live performance from Very Be Careful took us across many moods and grooves.

Though we won’t be popping off regularly, there is no reason to be sad. In addition to a couple of special editions we will put together in the off-season, we will be working to make next season of The Do-Over even more special than the last. The current plan is to kick off our sixth year on Sunday May 16th, 2010.

Our next special edition is only three weeks away. Our third annual Left-Over is set to take place on Friday November 27th. Check back here for more details on that very very soon.

Finally, thanks to all those that have helped us make this season of The Do-Over the best yet – Darren, Dominique, Annie, all of Cranes bartenders, staff and security, Al Myers, the DJ’s and you!

What’cha Wanna Do? Do-Over!

Week Twenty Four Recap (October 25, 2009)

This past week we celebrated our final *regular* Sunday session of the 2009 season at The Do-Over. As we grow in years, the levels we hit later in the year are always a good indication of where we are headed. If the levels from this past Sunday are true to form, wowzer… we are in for some more amazing times in years to come.

From the get go, Mr. Hot Biscuit aka Travis TK Disko rocked a couple hours of daytime boogie and disco to get the people moving. Theo Parrish, one of our favorite producers / dj’s joining us exclusively for the day, followed with 3 hours of that deep and chunky Detroit beatdown sound. Scott K, in his virgin Do-Over appearance behind the wheels, did it right with some serious classics and pumpin jams. Finally, Thee Mike B, who has become a pro at rockin’ The Do-Over crowd dropped a b-side heavy hip hop set (the first ever Do-Over rotary mixed hip hop set).

Okay folks… this brings us to this Sunday’s annual Boo-Over costume jam. Yes, we understand its the day after Halloween, and yes, it is costume mandatory. Are you planning to come without a costume? Well, plan something else. We have years of stories of folks who thought they were too cool to rock a costume, yet not too cool to stand outside on the street and wish they were inside. We open at 4pm this Sunday and ride til 10pm or so. Early arrival is encouraged as it will get heavy. Big big big guests this week too, so What’cha Wanna Do?
