LayerOne Sunday After Party!

Posted on 22 May 2014 (0)

We’re excited to announce that the LayerOne 2014 After Party will once again be hosted at the 23b Shop. This year they’re pulling a few strings and bringing in some friends to throw a great post-LayerOne decompression filled with delicious smoked meats!

Interested in great food and even better socialization? Head to 23b after closing ceremonies on Sunday! Each year 23b has graciously hosted the LayerOne After Party out of the goodness of their hearts. Want to help them out? Contribute to the cause (and get to be first in line for food) via their IndieGoGo fundraiser! Looks to be a great BBQ thus far, but you can help make it even better!

See you all this weekend!
