Euclid Hall steps into its birthday suit and parties

One thing we know for certain: Euclid Hall knows how to throw a birthday party. Sean and I stepped up to the door to get our names checked, our TSA scan done, and for our pink bracelets to get slapped on.  We didn’t know that later in the night, we’d be chasing goldfish through a […]

Spring 44 Launches Product in Denver at Euclid Hall

On Tuesday, June 19th, Spring 44 (one of Sean Kenyon’s consulting projects) launched in the Denver market at Euclid Hall.
