It's so big, it's massive (that's what she said?)

This year the AGO celebrated a decade of Massive parties with Massive 10.  So, I put on my party clothes and headed over to the AGO with 1,800 of my closest art-loving friends.  The theme of this year's Massive was a mash-up of internet, sports, decades past, religion and numerology - a perfect 10 

Our night at the AGO kicked off with great energy as we were awarded a perfect 10 on our outfits by an enthusiastic panel. The positivity continued as we made our way through an energized crowd and sampled a few signature cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres.  Delish! 

As with any AGO event, there's always lots to see and do; 3-D printing, an interactive lighting display, skeleton gloves, live music, a roaming hockey team, DJs and lots and lots of dancing.  Oh, and one small other thing, a good ol' fashioned Vogue-Off. This was a first for my friends and they ended up being some of the most enthusiastic members of the crowd. 

The evening was topped off with a massive dance party on the third floor.  There was no posturing and it seemed as though everyone was just there to have a great time.  And guess what, that leads to an atmosphere where everyone does have a great time.  Seriously, I wish I could've bottled up all of that energy and saved it for a rainy day. 

The only draw back, I'll have to wait a whole year to do it again.
