HennyPalooza

Like most great nightlife experiences, HennyPalooza started out as a small, organic gathering of friends, but this one just happened to be at the residence of founder Kameron McCullough. The idea was simple – bring a bottle of the popular cognac Hennessy, and/or food item.  After an initial series of texts, emails, tweets and instagram posts, HennyPalooza has become the most shared party series on social media to date. 3 years, 21 Palooza’s, and 40,000+ people later, the “party” in Kam’s apartment has evolved into one the most socially activated parties ever.
