SRQ MEDIA kicked off the holiday season with a festive soirée with over 200 of our clients, partners and dear friends on Thursday, December 1 at Sarasota Architectural Salvage. True to SRQ form, the night was full of music, laughter, twinkling lights and delicious food. The vintage pieces on display at Sarasota Architectural Salvage perfectly captured the hyper-local essence of SRQ Magazine, each telling its own colorful story about a unique history. Guests were treated to an experience like no other exploring, discovering and stimulating the imagination with a little holiday cheer sprinkled in.

The sound of laughter filled the party as guests enjoyed the interactive photo booth and indulged in a delicious spread of holiday favorites provided by Michaels on East, Geckos Grill & Pub and Sift Bakehouse. From chicken wings, New England lobster rolls, barbecued curry shrimp, and caviar on blintzes to the classic SIFT sugar cookie (totally addictive!), food was plentiful and the bar fully stocked with beer from SRQ events partner Gold Coast Eagle Distributing.

We would like to sincerely thank Jesse White, Owner of Sarasota Architectural Salvage for allowing us to use his imaginative space. We are so grateful for his inspiring commitment to the community and continuous support of SRQ Magazine.

“The theme of the evening was ‘partnership’ and the SRQ team clearly knows the meaning of win-win. The joy of the season was in the air all night long. Guests and team members with shining smiles, laughter booming above the background music and animated stories shared amongst business partners turned friends. Joining with SRQ Mag for this holiday party demonstrates all the good that comes from partnerships,” said White.
