2010 kicks off an entirely new decade of positive change and possibilities, it's an exciting time for us all! the past year has been difficult for myself and many of my close friends, but we made it through and i'd like to thank every one of you who came out and supported me as i took a chance to build something different with the RGB events. thank you for that!
for the past year Monkeytown has been the home for RGB, but sadly that time has come to an end, as Monkeytown's doors will be closing for good this month.
so i'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to come out and enjoy RGB @ Monkeytown one last time! (and to those of you who've never been this is your chance to check out this truly unique NYC venue!)
Hope to see you all there this Saturday!
