Where does the time go?
Already four years have passed since downtown co-working space, CO+HOOTS, opened its doors. In that time, the creative community space has hosted numerous talks, parties, and weekly events, changed locations, launched a non-profit foundation, and announced the possibility of a second location by winter of 2014 or spring of 2015.
Needless to say, they've been busy. Which is why this week they're blowing off steam and celebrating four years well done by hosting an all day party at The Clarendon Hotel.
The CO+HOOTS four-year anniversary festivities will run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Scheduled events include co-working in poolside-cabanas and conference rooms around the hotel (9:30 a.m. to noon and throughout the afternoon), a Midweek Mindtweek seminar presented by Amy Donohue about her documentary Social Media Stole my Kidney (noon to 1 p.m.), happy hour, networking, and raffle prizes by the pool (4:30 to 5:30 p.m.), rooftop yoga led by Adam Maielua of CoreBalance Studio (5:30 to 6:30 p.m.), and a show by Flamenco Por la Vida inside Gallo Blanco (7 to 9 p.m.).
CO+HOOTS has also invited prominent members of the Phoenix community to socialize at this event, including Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Phoenix Councilman Daniel Valenzuela. Guest day passes, which include wi-fi and access to the pool and private cabanas, are $4. The Midweek Mindtweek and rooftop yoga are free to attend. For more information, visit CO+HOOTS online.
