FITL’s Brunch & Boogie

FITL’s Brunch & Boogie

Wow. What can I say? Kids, tons of dancing, club tracks & a smoke machine?! That was a raging party…

Yup, you heard me right, a smoke machine!

When Families in the Loop founder, Wendy Widom said she wanted to throw a party that was reminiscent of the Spring Breaks of yesteryear, she wasn’t joking.

Parents and kids took to the dance floor to rock out to classic club beats while occasionally taking breaks to peruse the goods offered up by a bevy of local vendors handpicked by Wendy and her sidekick Kim Wilschek. The result was an experience that was both surreal and memorable.

To keep in the tradition of those now faded memories of my own Spring Break club years, I decided to go a little out of the box with these event photos by giving them that old spotlight club look so familiar in the pages of my now tucked away albums. I will say it’s definitely good to know that when you take over a club, pump up the volume and let the kids loose, they still love to party even at the tender age of 3.
