October 21, 2015 — Santa Cruz, CA

On Friday November 6, 2015, get ready for a First Friday party as Cruzio and our Works members celebrate with another Open House Extravaganza. We’re kind of renowned for throwing wild parties and this year’s looks like it’ll once again dazzle and amaze. Cruzio has been a part of the local Santa Cruz scene since 1989 and CruzioWorks began on its journey in 2011 in the fully refurbished former Santa Cruz Sentinel building.

The Open House Extravaganza is first and foremost a showcase of the local businesses, freelancers, and entrepreneurs that work hard every day in the CruzioWorks community and would love to share their experiences with you.

Choice Provisions, an award winning local video game company behind such titles as the “Bit Trip” series and “Woah Dave!” will be rockin’ the party! Game designer Mike Roush promises guests can “play our video game arcade of games made in the heart of Santa Cruz.” Also featured at their table will be the brand new “Tharsis” which promises to be a “turn-based, realistic space strategy game. With dice. And cannibalism.” Now that’s a party!

ToTel Communications, Santa Cruz’s go-to telecom company, will be in attendance and on hand to answer any and all questions. They provide VoIP, digital voice phone service over your Internet connection, for local business in the Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay Area and in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Learn about healthy fats in your diet from global expert, author, and registered dietitian nutritionist, Gretchen Vannice. Check out her newest book on The Good Fat, a simple overview of fat in our food. Stop being confused about fat! Can bacon, butter, fish, and walnuts co-exist in a healthy diet? Learn how 5 calories a day could save your life.

Expect to see a lot of other fantastic community members share what they do with the general public in what is shaping up to be the party of the year.

This isn’t our first rodeo here at Cruzio Internet, and as such we realize that you can’t have a great party without great music, food and drink.

Headlining the event is the chaotic, melodic, and psychedelic funk band known only as The Redlight District.

Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery, an award winning, local, certified organic brewery, will be pouring free draft beverages. A taco truck will be serving steamy and spicy plates for a small fee. And because you can’t have dinner without dessert, Aunt Lali’s ice cream and espresso will be available for purchase.

During last year’s event, the whole town was lit up with our peerless Cruzio swag, so if freebies are the key to your heart, look no further. There will be tons more going on at this year’s OHE so stay tuned for more information coming up. We can’t wait to see all your beautiful glowing faces at our First Friday: Open House Extravaganza — we hope to welcome you to our beautiful building very soon!
